Muay Thai

Thai boxing, or literally Thai boxing, is a fight sport in Thailand. It uses vertical strokes and a variety of hitting techniques. The discipline is known as "eight limb art" because it features a combination of fist, elbow, knee and tibia. Thai boxing was widely spread in the world in the 20th century, when Thai practitioners began to participate in Taekwondo, mixed rule competitions and Thai Boxing rule competitions around the world. The professional league is supervised by the Thai professional boxing association (p.a.t), which is recognized by the Thai Sports Authority (SAT) and the world professional Thai Boxing Federation (WMF) overseas.

It is similar to the relevant styles in other areas of Indian culture, such as lesway in Myanmar, pradal serey in Cambodia, Muay Lao in Laos and tomoi in Malaysia.

The history of Thai boxing can also be traced back to the middle of the 18th century. In the battle between the konbaung Dynasty and Siam, the famous fighter Nai khanomtom was captured in 1767. Burmese know his expertise in close combat, which provides him with the opportunity to fight for freedom. Nai khanomtom managed to knock out ten consecutive Burmese competitors. He was impressed by his boxing skills, and his kidnappers freed him to return to Siam. He was recognized as a hero, and his fighting style was known as one-piece boxing, later as Thai boxing. This style of fighting was soon recognized as a national sport.

Thai Boran, also known as Thai boxing, was originally called by a more general name, such as toi Muay or Muay for short. Taiquan is not only a practical fighting technology used in actual war, but also a sport in which opponents fight in front of the audience watching entertainment. These Thai boxing competitions have gradually become part of local festivals and celebrations, especially those held in temples. In the end, the fighters who used to bare their fists began to twine their hands and forearms with a certain length of hemp rope. This type of competition is called "Taiquan dune". Taekwondo is also an integral part of military training and was valued during the reign of King Naresuan in 1560 A.D.

Thai boxing is known as "eight limb art" or "eight limb science" because it uses eight "contact points" because of the impact of fist, foot, elbow and knee, rather than "quarter" (fist) in "two" boxing and "quarter" (hand and foot) in other more regulated fighting sports (such as taekwondo and short boxing). The practitioners of Thai boxing are called nachtai boxing. Western practitioners are sometimes referred to as NAK Muay farang, meaning "foreign boxers.".

1909-1910: King Chulalongkorn formalized Thai Boxing (Bolan) by awarding the winner 3 Mun for his son's funeral in 1910. Regional style: huafuli, nakat and guess.

1913: British boxing introduced the curriculum of Suan kulap college. Descriptive use of the word "Taiquan"

1919: in the course of Suan kulap college, British boxing and Thai boxing were taught as a sport. Judo also offers.

1921: Suan kulap College's first permanent ring in Siam. Used in Thai boxing and British boxing.

1923: Suan sanuk stadium. The first international style three rope loop near lumbinee Park, with red and blue filled corners. Thai and British boxing.

King Rama VII (R. 1925-35) requires the establishment of written Thai Boxing rules, which have been put into practice. Thailand's first ring was built in 1921 in Suan kularp. The referee has been introduced and now it's time to play. In training and fighting against foreigners, longbyon fighters began to wear modern gloves and hard groin protectors. The traditional lashing rope (kaad chuek) makes the hand a hard and dangerous hitting tool. Knots are used on the ropes on the knuckles, which not only makes the strike more abrasive and damaging to the opponent, but also protects the fighter's hands. Such ties are still used in Thai combat, but after death on the ring, it was decided that the fighters should wear gloves and cotton sheets on their feet and ankles. It was also around this time that the word "Muay Thai" was widely used, and the earlier form of this style, known as "Muay Boran", is now performed mainly in the form of exhibition art.

In 1993, IFMA was founded. It has become the governing body of amateur Thai boxing, composed of 128 member countries in the world and recognized by the Asian Olympic Council.

In 1995, the world Thai Boxing Council was established by the royal government of Thailand and sanctioned by the General Administration of sport of Thailand.

In 1995, the world Thai Boxing Federation was established through the merger of two existing organizations, and established in Bangkok, becoming the Federation of International Thai Boxing management. As of August 2012, it has more than 70 member states. Its chairman was elected at the world Thai Boxing convention.

In 2006, Taiquan was listed in Sportaccord by IFMA. One of the requirements of Sportaccord is that no sport can name a country after it. As a result, the IFMA constitution was amended to change the name of the sport from "Muay Thai" to "muaythai", a word written in accordance with the Olympic requirements.

In 2014, Thai boxing was included in the international World Games Association (IWGA) and will participate in the official plan of the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland.

In January 2015, Taiquan was sponsored by FISU. From March 16 to 23, 2015, the first world Taiquan World Cup will be held in Bangkok.

Today, there are thousands of stadiums around the world.

The formal Thai Boxing technology is divided into two groups: Mae mai (main technology) and luk mai (secondary Technology). Thai boxing is usually a technique of attrition, with opponents hitting each other. This is certainly the case with Thai traditional stylists, but in the modern world's fighting tour, fighting is not so popular, and Thai style attacks are no longer Thai style. Almost all Thai boxing techniques use the whole body's movements. Every time you kick, hit, elbow or block, you rotate your hips.
