The History of Muay Thai: The Thai Fight

Alexandre Breck

Muay Thai is a traditional Thai combat sport, often referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs." It originated in Thailand and gained popularity due to the country's strategic location, which made it commercially significant. Muay Thai emerged as a defense and warfare technique developed by the Thais to protect themselves and their territory from enemies. Over time, it spread throughout Thailand and, in addition to its military applications, began to be practiced as a sport. Today, Muay Thai boasts a global following and has even become an Olympic sport. In its home country of Thailand, Muay Thai is hailed as the "sport of kings" and is considered the national pastime. The book "The History of Muay Thai - The Thai Fight" chronicles the story of this fight.
