The art of 8 limbs!

The art of 8 limbs, commonly known as Muay Thai, is a well-known form of fighting here in America and all over the world.  The Thai boxing style is well-practiced in UFC and MMA fights.  Many mixed martial artists and UFC fighters have a background in Western Muay Thai, a more practical variation of the traditional Muay Thai style.  It is referred to as the art of 8 limbs because of the style’s excessive use of two feet, two knees, two elbows and two hands.


Muah Thai is a very deadly style of fighting, as it uses the most solid points on the body to execute deadly blows if directed in the proper ares.
One of the well-known traditional Muay Thai fighters is Tony Jaa, star of Ong Bak.  He is a very skilled Muay Thai fighter and all of his stunts are done without the use of safety gear or special effects. 
Take a peak at his amazing skill!

Traditional Muay Thai is one of my favorite styles of martial arts for many reasons.  If you don’t know much about the sport, check out some fights.  You won’t believe what you are missing.  Your best bet is to rent Ong Bak and Ong Bak 2 for a real taste of the style and all of its deadly beauty.
