Thai Boxing (Muay thai)
Thai Boxing (Muay thai) มวยไทย is the Thailand martial art that originated from the ancient Thai martial art Muay boran. The modern Muay thai permits to strikes by fists, feet, shins, elbows and knees. As s result, Muay thai is called “eight-limb combat”. Muay thai differs from karate or wushu by the absence of formal complexes (katas, taolu). These absences are replaced with basic combinations of two or three punches, along with sparring and work with “paws” and sacks are also used.
