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.
