Muay Thai is an ancient combat sport originating from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. Muay derives from the Sanskrit word mavya, which means "to bind together." Muay Thai is known as the "Art of Eight Limbs" as practitioners use punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes.
