Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing as it’s known in the west, is Thailand’s national sport, and one of the most popular forms of martial arts in south-east Asia. The Thai Boxing Thailand project gives travellers an opportunity to learn the basics of this sport, whilst taking in the culture of the country that created it. Known by many as ‘The Art of the Eight Limbs’, Muay Thai teaches its students to combat their opponents with eight different points of contact: the feet, knees, elbows and hands.

Muay Thai is widely considered to be the most physical sport in the martial arts category, and it is also deemed to be one of the hardest to master. During this project you will train in all of the elements essential to Muay Thai; your instructor will teach you all of the traditional training techniques and, over the course of your time on this project, you will develop your skills as a Thai boxer.

Whether you are completely new to the sport or have been learning this or another martial art for years, the experienced instructors we work with will be able to develop an in-depth training program that suits you. While the training you take part in will cover a range of disciplines and areas, Thai boxing focuses primarily on: agility, speed and balance. In order to develop each discipline of Muay Thai – punches, kicks, elbows, etc. – you will learn exercises and practice drills that promote these important elements.
