Why get into Muay Thai Kickboxing?
Utilise a beautiful symphony of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows with fluidity and grace.
Progressing into the real world means facing real problems. These can be everything from facing bullying head-on, to avoiding the everyday dangers of the streets. It could even involve confronting violence against women or any confrontation. Regardless of the reason, the art of self-defence has seen a boom in recent years. By empowering children and young adults with the knowledge of self-defence, Thai kickboxing has seen somewhat of a revival. At least it would have, had it ever gone away. Historically developed from karate mixed with boxing, kickboxing has grown over the years. Comparatively, the ancient martial art of Muay Thai has spread around the world – with fans of one sport often being fans of the other. Yet, whilst Muay Thai and kickboxing are two different sports, both share similar attributes.
What is Muay Thai Kickboxing?
To use your mind and body to develop your mental and physical strength.
Typically speaking, both Muay Thai and kickboxing encompass different teachings. Given the sports improvisational nature, its implementation will vary depending on the individual. From a distance, kickboxing involves the use of stand-up striking kicks, in a hands-on full-contact environment. One could be forgiven for seeing similarities between it and Muay Thai. However, unlike traditional kickboxing, Muay Thai is known as the “art of eight limbs”. This is because Muay Thai kickboxing utilises a beautiful symphony of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows with fluidity and grace. Conversely, kickboxers can “only” use four limbs to strike solely with kicks and punches. So, for those who want to empower themselves with the knowledge of self-defence, then Muay Thai kickboxing is certainly the way to go.
