Muay Thai Martial Arts
‘The Art of Eight Limbs’ is what the Thai name for Muay Thai Martial Arts means. This refers to the eight points of contact mainly used: hands, feet, elbows and knees. These are used for strikes and punches. A fighter who uses Muay Thai is called a ‘Nak Muay’ and Westerners who use this style of fighting are called ‘Nak Muay Farang’ [‘farang’ meaning ‘foreign’].
