The History of Muay Thai Kickboxing
What little we do know about the origins of Muay Thai kickboxing comes from the writings of the old-world Burmese and Cambodian peoples in addition to chronicles of European travellers to those areas. It is widely believed that the Thai people developed the fighting style to defend their home from invaders, and it has been agreed on in almost every source that it was a fighting style so effective that it far surpassed the deadliness of the weapons that it came to replace. That explains why the practice spread to all other corners of the world, including even Narraweena, Dee Why and Cromer. Today, Prodigy MMA are the local masters on the practical art of Muay Thai kickboxing.
What Exactly is Muay Thai Kickboxing?
While other fighting styles are limited in their applications (regular boxing simply focuses on striking with the hands, karate is less of a practical style and is better for the discipline, etc.), Muay Thai is about using the whole body to strike quickly, powerfully and wisely. Your feet are arguably one of your most powerful weapons, so they form the basis of the art (hence the name), but your elbows, hands and knees will also be incorporated to make you a versatile and adaptable fighter. The most powerful weapon is, of course, the mind, and any kickboxing trainer in Dee Why will know more about when, why and how to strike in addition to just knowing how to hit hard.
