Muay Thai Kickboxing at Marin Mixed Martial Arts

“Muay Thai” is what the Thai people call their own martial art. The word “Muay” (pronounced “moo-ai”) means boxing. In ancient times, since advanced weapons were not invented yet, people in war had only swords, staffs, and lances to use. Thailand had to encounter and fight with many marauders to protect their communities. The Krabi (swords)-Krabong (staffs) arts was specially taught to soldiers to be able to fight.

Muay Thai is a self-defense art taught together with Krabi-Krabong to be used when soldiers have to fight without weapons At times soldiers can fall into trouble such as losing their weapons and having to do hand-to-hand fighting.

Muay Thai is the art of using human’s toughest organics such as head, fists, elbows, knees and feet as weapons to hurt enemies. People have said that Muay Thai is one of the most powerful and deadly martial arts!
