Even if you witnes the incredible spectacle
of Phuket Thai boxing just once, you will never
forget it. Muay Thai in Phuket is a big crowd-puller, but
the sport attracts interest all over Thailand, as it has done for
over 2,000 years.
Traditionally known as the 'science of eight limbs' Muay Thai, internationally known as Thai boxing, is actually only one component of an entire system of Thai warcraft which encompasses weapon training. However it is the unarmed combat facet which has gained worldwide fame.
The Thai nation has evolved as a tribal people who have
been compelled to defend their country from invaders for countless
centuries. Accordingly this vital combat system has been passed
down from teacher to student for innumerable generations. Muay Thai
involves not only kicking and punching techniques but also knee and
Muay Thai contests are held throughout Thailand, at venues ranging from air-conditioned modern arenas to crude rings set up at village fairs. The higher profile fights attract a wide fan following.
