What is muaythai?
One of the fastest growing fighting styles in the UK, Muay Thai is two thousand years of combat history distilled into the ‘science of eight limbs’, in which the fighter employs fists, shins, knees and elbows, plus a form of stand-up grappling known as clinch work.
Its power and simplicity mean it’s widely regarded as the world’s most effective martial art and it has exploded globally in recent years, winning fans both as a breath-taking ring sport and a vital component of mixed martial arts. In the process it’s made superstars of two-times K1 World Max champion Buakaw benchamek and ‘Ong-Bak’ actor Tony Jaa, as well as countless big MMA names.
