HISTORY OF THAI BOXING
The Muay Thai or Thai Boxing, is derived from an ancient Thai fighting, the Mae Mai (the bare hands of Krabi Krabong). This was an art of real combat used on the battlefield, and also included the use of weapons of various types. The warriors Thais were very feared and respected for their ability to fight.
From this deadly art, comes the Thai Boxing, sporty version, less bloody. And immediately spreads among Thais at all levels, from the king to the people.
In 1930 are inserted rules based on Boxing, making collisions less bloody, thanks mainly to the adoption of the gloves (and techniques of boxing), rounds and weight categories. This opens the way for a Thai Boxing sporty-agonistic.
Currently the Thai Boxing is one of the most common martial arts in the world, and practiced as a national sport in Thailand, where students begin from the very young age, even with the opportunity to gain (fighting in matches).
TECHNIQUE OF THAI BOXING
Thai Boxing is not a martial art for everyone. The physical preparation, the determination to endure the pain and fatigue, and, above all, strong tibias, are important features for those wishing to take this art seriously. The deadly kick with the tibia, especially in the legs (low kick) is one of its main features (the low kick is so efficient to be now included in almost all sport competition o other martial arts)
Another feature is the use of knees, many times, grabbing the opponent's head and pulling against the knee.
The elbows are also part of the combat of this art, but are not always allowed in competition, because they are too devastating.
Currently, it is considered one of the hardest and most effective combat arts.
As weaknesses, we can say that in competitions are not covered the grappling, projections and joint locks (only in a simplified version, the clinch).
