|What is Muay Thai? Muay Thai is a traditional art of self defense which has been handed down through generations for over 2000 years. Today, Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and the most influential style in international kick boxing. Often referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs", Muay Thai employs techniques with the hands, feet, elbows, and knees extensively.
|Muay Thai is specifically designed to promote that level of fitness and toughness required for ring competition. Training regimens include many staples of combat sport conditioning such as running, shadowboxing, rope jumping, body weight resistance exercises, medicine ball exercises, abdominal exercises. Training that is specific to a Muay Thai fighter includes training with coaches on Thai pads, focus mitts, heavy bag, and sparring. The daily training includes many rounds (3-5 minute periods broken up by a short rest, often 1-2 minutes) of these various methods of practice. Thai pad training is a cornerstone of Muay Thai conditioning which involves practicing punches, kicks, knees, and elbow strikes with a trainer wearing thick pads which cover the forearms and hands. These special pads are used to absorb the impact of the fighter’s strikes, and allow the fighter to react to the attacks of the pad holder. It is an exhilarating and comprehensive work out.|
