MUAYTHAI IS THE ART OF 8 WEAPONS: HANDS, ELBOWS, FEET AND KNEES.  

MUAYTHAI WAS THE PRIMARY AND MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD OF SELF DEFENSE USED BY THAI WARRIORS ON THE BATTLEFIELDS OF CONFLICTS AND WARS THAT OCCURRED COUNTLESS TIMES THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF THE NATION NOW KNOWN AS THAILAND. 

IN THE EARLY 1930S, MUAYTHAI WAS OFFICIALLY CODIFIED, WITH RULES AND REGULATIONS BEING CREATED AND INTRODUCED INTO THE SPORTING WORLD, TO MAKE MUAYTHAI AN INTERNATIONAL SPORT OF THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY AND A SAFE RING SPORT. ROUND CONTESTS WERE INTRODUCED ALONG WITH EIGHT DIVISIONS BASED ON INTERNATIONAL BOXING.
