What is Muay Thai?

Muay Thai is the traditional art of Thai self-defense. Originating in Thailand, it is a style of unarmed fighting using the feet, knees, elbows, and fists as defending weapons. Its techniques can differ greatly from kickboxing, and a true Muay Thai fighter in Thailand would make frequent use of elbows and knees in competition (in addition to the feet and fists). There is no martial art quite like Muay Thai.  Muay Thai students do not earn belts typical of other martial arts. Instead, Muay Thai practitioners prove their skills in the ring.
