The art of the eight limbs. “Eight limbs” refers to the eight weapons in this art form; two hands, two fists, two knees and two feet. Although these weapons appear basic they are the foundation of this proven and effective martial art.
Muay Thai originated in Thailand and it began as a close combat battlefield fighting skill which was considered more deadly than the weapons it replaced.
At Florida Kickboxing Academy we are focused on teaching the traditional aspect and blending it with modern training techniques that can be utilized by everyone whether you are a beginner or a competitor. Some of our training incorporates additional footwork technique, the ability to attack and defend from different angles and the agility and coordination needed for rigorous conditioning.
