What is Muaythai?

The traditional form of martial arts in Thailand is called Muay Thai or Thai boxing. It has two contact spots like boxing and four contact spots in the hands and feet like kickboxing. The 8 angas technique is used to make contact by punching, kicking, elbowing, and kneeing. Heading is prohibited for the Thai belief that the soul can escape through such contact. Boxing trunks are worn with a Mongkhon on the head and a Peurakchiat strapped on the arm. Today, gloves are worn as opposed to the past when glass powder was coated on bandaged fingers with hemp.
