As a sport, Muay Thai has reached new audiences around the world. But for the men, women, and family interested in losing weight and getting into proper shape, then Muay Thai has become an answer.
What is Muay Thai?
The sport of Muay Thai was first established centuries ago as a means of self-defense. A collection of techniques used in unarmed combat were combined into what became known as Muay Thai at some point in the 16th century.
By the turn of the 20th century, these same techniques were turned into a popular regional sport. In Southeast Asia, Muay Thai became quite popular. However, at the turn of the 21st century the rise of mixed martial arts suddenly put Muay Thai on the world stage.
As a sport, Muay Thai has a devoted following thanks to the dramatic matches that take place. But one side effect was that more people around the world saw the health, fitness, and lean bodies of those who participate in Muay Thai. The result was that more people became interested in learning Muay Thai for weight loss and better fitness.
