Muay Thai (Thai Kick Boxing) is the national sport of Thailand. Established over four centuries ago, Muay Thai was once used in the military. In the 1920's, Thailand introduced western boxing rules for safety and competitive scoring. Muay Thai is known for its strong kicks and knee strikes as well as elbow strikes and boxing techniques. In the ring, it is known as the "king of the ring" and outside of the ring, it's very effective for self defense.
