Muay Thai Kickboxing
What is Muay Thai?
The term Muay Thai kickboxing has become kind of a blanket term to cover anything that involves punching and kicking. In actuality, Muay Thai has a few distinct features. It’s a centuries old fighting art that comes mostly from Thailand. In addition to striking with fists and shins, this martial art also involves knee and elbow strikes, as well as a form of stand-up grappling called a clinch. Sometimes referred to as the “art of eight limbs,” when combined with good physical conditioning, this fighting art can be very effective and efficient.
Muay Thai has garnered renewed popularity in recent years and is a rapidly growing martial art in the United States. Moreover, despite its long-history, today’s Muay Thai fighters have adopted some western boxing techniques which are taught at Mohler MMA.
