Muay Thai

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon.

Muay Thai is the “The Art of Eight Limbs”. The art therefore focuses on using eight points of contact the body mimics weapons of war. The hands become the sword and dagger. The shins and forearms harden in training to act as armor against blows. The elbow fells opponents like a heavy mace or hammer. The legs and knees become the axe and staff. The body operates as one unit. The knees and elbows are constantly searching and testing for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground for the kill.

Boxing

mmaprograms_boxingBoxing is one of the simplest and oldest sports. Two people fight each other with their fists until one of them is knocked unconscious. This comes with a history that spans centuries. A history that includes a host of outrageous characters, a potent dose of controversy and corruption, and the ever-present possibility of glory or tragedy, leaving us  with something even more compelling than a basic test of strength and will.

Wrestling/ Grappling

The modern sportive form of wrestling, an individual weaponless combat activity, probably developed in prehistory from survival fighting, when it became convenient to replace death or serious injury with a more symbolic victory. Considerable evidence proves that that wrestling existed in all early civilizations. However,  it developed into a sport in ancient Greece, and was included in the Olympic Games in 704 BC.mmaprograms_grappling

Traditionally, grappling was always synonymous with the combative sport of wrestling. Back then, wrestlers were called grapplers and grapplers were called wrestlers. During traditional grappling competitions, two unarmed opponents engaged in a hand-to-hand struggle, and the goal was to throw your opponent to the ground and gain control over him. These competitions separated themselves from boxing arts by disallowing strikes.
