Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a martial art that is well known for the usage of arms and legs. However some old sources say that in the ancient times even the head was used during combat. Today using the head is not common and it is only practiced in some rare competitions. In the past Muay Thai was part of the process of growing of every child in Thailand and also part of the military training. After the Second World War Muay Thai has experienced some major changes like using gloves which lead to popularization of Muay Thai around the world, and many people use it for self-defense or recreation. Thais are very proud of their national sport and we can compare its popularity there with soccer in Europe or American football in the USA. There probably isn’t any Thai that doesn’t know the basic rules of Muay Thai. This popularity logically led to opening of numerous Muay Thai training camps. These camps can be found everywhere – from the isolated mountainous regions to the popular tourist destinations where thousands of tourists travel to see the beauties of Thailand.
Every year the number of travelers in Thailand is increasing and a large number of those travelers are coming to Thailand in order to train Muay Thai. As we have mentioned before there is a variety of Muay Thai training camps all across Thailand, but not all of them have experience with foreigners.
