Muay Thai

A little food, several fights and lots of fun. We hit this town a few hours north of Bangkok in early 2017 for a great night of cold beer and local entertainment. I wasn’t disappointed.

Muay Thai (Thai: มวยไทย) or Thai boxing is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as ‘the art of eight limbs’ because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts. (Wikipedia)
