Muaythai is an ancient martial art and combat sport that integrates tradition and values, combined with incredible spectator appeal. It is known as the science of eight limbs. Practitioners execute strikes using eight points of contact known as “weapons”: fists, shins, knees and elbows. Full contact technique allows kick, punch, knee and elbow striking at all ranges; clinching, where fighters can effectively strike with the elbow and knee; and sweeping tactics. Muaythai is a sport and art for everybody, with many different disciplines, and the ring sport will be featured at the World Combat Games.
