About Muay Thai (Thai Boxing)
Muay Thai, translated to English as “Thai Boxing”, is the National sport of Thailand. It is also referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because, unlike Western Boxing which only uses two fists, Muay Thai involves using one’s punches, kicks, elbows, and knees to create eight points of contact. Muay thai also differs from the other striking arts of kickboxing and boxing by utilizing many different clinching techniques to create openings for all the eight weapons.
Students of Muay Thai at The Cellar Gym will move up through the ranks developed by the World Thai Boxing Association and Ajarn Surachai “Chai” Sirisute. Once a member has reached an appropriate level, they will be invited to join advanced classes which are ideal for students who have an interest in competing Muay Thai or training MMA.
