Muay Thai is a combination of boxing techniques, powerful kicks, knee and elbow strikes. Low kicks to the opponents thigh are a very distinguishing technique used frequently in Muay Thai. Practitioners develop a very high level of physical conditioning, muscular endurance and stamina. Muay Thai training methods develop devastating power, speed, and cardiovascular endurance as well as fighting spirit. Muay Thai is also very safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that evolved to keep fighters healthy between fights. It has proven itself to be the most effective striking system in both Mixed Martial Arts and Self Defense.
In recent times Muay Thai has received increased popularity worldwide. Many well known MMA fighters such as Anderson Silva, Jon Jones and Georges St Pierre have combined the art of Muay Thai with various forms of Submission Wrestling to dominate their competition in an overwhelming manner.
The success of Muay Thai in MMA has made it the striking martial art of choice for competitive stand up fighters. But Muay Thai Kickboxing isn’t all about high impact punches and kicks! Practitioners make extensive use of the “clinch”, a form of stand up grappling which allows a fighter to control their opponent’s movement and create openings for devastating close quarter attacks such as vicious elbow and knees strikes.
