MUAY THAI (Kickboxing) and BOXING
In Muay Thai , the renowned national sport of Thailand, a person’s entire body can be used as a weapon. A balance of movement and force, its rhythm mirrors the Thai Traditional music beating from a live band of drums and pipes set beside the stage. Muay Thai is usually considered the Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science of Eight Limbs”. It is called this because it uses 8 weapons(2 legs, 2 knees, 2 elbows, and 2 fists). In my eyes it is the most beautiful Standup Martial Art because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in other more regulated combat sports
