Kickboxing has a long history in Thailand and is the country’s national sport. An evening ringside at a Muay Thai event is a must for any sporting enthusiast travelling to Thailand.
Traditional Muay Thai practiced today, varies slightly from the ancient art, and the only similarity to western boxing is that the fighters wear gloves. Muay Thai is also known as the ‘science of the eight limbs’ as master Muay Thai fighters are able to strike using eight different points of contact including the hands, shins, elbows and knees.

My son and I had a great time from start to finish, glad we took our camera as I thought we would have had the chance to get a photo with the competitors that we could buy. The courier that picked us up from and to our hotel was excellent and very informative. Very, very enjoyable.
