Muay Thai comes from Thailand and is a little more like your traditional martial arts of Karate or Tae Kwon Do in the fact that it is stand up/striking martial art with punches and kicks. However, Thai Boxing is known as the art of eight limbs because it uses punches, kicks, knees, and elbow strikes not typically found in more “traditional” martial arts. Thai Boxing has become world renowned as an effective and powerful striking martial art because it is the striking martial art of choice for many Mixed Martial Arts fighters. The kids martial arts classes at Valhalla learn Thai Boxing in a safe and controlled environment with proper supervision and safety equipment such as gloves, shin guards, and pads. Muay Thai is great for exercise and self defense.
