Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to “two points” (fists) in boxing and “four points” (hands and feet) used in other more regulated combat sports. The benefits that accompany learning Muay Thai are numerous, but here’s a list of five just to name a few:

1. Increased Cardiovascular Conditioning

2. Leg Strength

3. Core Strength

4. Increased Hip Mobility

5. Stress Relief
