An art print featuring the discipline, Muay Thai. Muay Thai (Thai: มวยไทย) is a combat sport from Thailand that uses "stand up" striking along with various clinching techniques. Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science of Eight Limbs" 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 "stand up" style combat sports, such as kickboxing. A practitioner of muay thai is known as a nak muay.
