Vancouver: Muay Thai

MuayThai_0.jpg

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing has roots that extends far into Thailand's history. It was first used in close combat on the battlefield and was eventually popularized as a spectator sport. Now recognized as Thailand's national sport, this fighting style is described as the most dangerous of all martial arts. It utilizes all parts of the body: hands, feet, shins, elbows and the head as weapons against one's opponent. Fast-paced and intense, Muay Thai is not for the faint of heart.
