Muay Thai, also known as Thai Kickboxing is Thailand’s National Sport. Hugely popular for many Centuries in Thailand, Muay Thai now has a large International following. Muay Thai differs from Western Boxing in that strikes can be made with the hands, feet, elbows and knees so Thai Kickboxing is often referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”.
There are Muay Thai Boxing Camps all over Thailand and Chiang Mai is extremely fortunate to have several good Muay Thai Boxing Gyms that are open to foreigners. Quite apart from the scenic beauty of Chiang Mai, the climate of Northern Thailand is more suited to intensive training than in many other parts of the country.
In Thailand, Muay Thai is practiced by both males and females and is the most popular form of Martial Arts amongst both young and old. Tony Jaa, the Thai Super Star of the Ong Bak movies, trained in the art of Muay Thai. To be a successful Thai Kickboxer requires a high level of fitness in addition to a knowledge of the basic skills. Indeed, many foreigners come to the Muay Thai gyms just for the training. Most of the Muay Thai camps offer basic but clean accommodation but as Chiang Mai has an enormous variety of places to stay with prices ranging from Budget to De-Luxe, finding somewhere to stay will not be a problem.
