Muay Thai boxing is called the “Art of Eight Limbs” because combatants always have eight different methods of striking available to them, including punches, elbows, kicks, and knees (the hardest parts of your body).

Renowned for its hard sparring and demanding conditioning regime, this sport is becoming more and more popular worldwide.
