Martial arts can be practiced for any reason from combat to meditation and they result in a sense of discipline, confidence and responsibility as well as a deeper understanding of human nature and the Self. Muay Thai (also called the Art of Eight Limbs or Thai boxing) is a stand-up striking art. It evolved from Muay Boran (ancient boxing), the hand-to-hand combat style practiced in Thailand prior to the influence of Western boxing. Since the introduction of equipment and boxing rings, Muay Thai has become a competitive combat sport and is popular with MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters as a striking strategy. This video will demonstrate a basic fight stance and one basic strike for each of the eight “limbs” or basic strikes – punches, elbows, knees and kicks. Practitioners are encouraged to train in an open space with plenty of room to move, and may use either a partner or a mirror for feedback on technique. -NYV0074A
