Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport and deeply embedded in the history and culture of the country. Originally created as a functional striking system for the Thai army and people to defend themselves and their families from enemy invasions, it slowly evolved into a competitive sport with the first “rings” being a simple piece of rope laid on the ground in a circle. It was also used as a way to settle civil disputes in Thailand’s more primeval eras.
