Muay Thai boxing is the de facto national sport in Thailand and probably one of its most famous exports. The muay Thai practiced today has evolved from the hand-to-hand muay boran fighting techniques practiced by Siamese soldiers more than 200 years ago.
Muay Thai fighters utilise their fists, elbows, shins and knees in combat. This plus the fact Muay Thai boxers are lighter on their feet and quicker than the average light or heavyweight boxers makes for an exciting spectator sport.
