The History of Muay Thai Kickboxing
Muay Thai is the martial arts that originated from Thailand; it's also known as 'The Art of Eight Limbs', and can be traced all the way back to the middle of the 16th century. It was then that the famous fighter Nai Khanomtom was captured by the Burmese during the battles between Siam and Burma. His captors, knowing his expertise in close quarters and hand-to-hand combat, gave him the opportunity to fight for his freedom. Having won the match and his freedom, he was permitted to return home, and his fighting style was recognized as Muay Thai.
The nickname 'The Art of Eight Limbs' comes from the eight points of contact used to mimic weapons of war. The hands mimic swords and daggers, the shins and forearms mimic armor, the elbow was to act like a mace, and the legs and knees became axes and staves. As the knees and elbows seek out weaknesses and openings, the entire body works as a single unit to bring down an opponent. Unlike most other martial arts, most of the focus on Muay Thai is on grappling and strikes, utilizing the eight points as opposed to two (normal boxing) or four (other fighting forms).

"First, I want to thank my trainers, Darren (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and Jim (Muay Thai Kickboxing). Without them pushing and motivating me while giving me advice, I would not be where I am today. Training at McCall Mixed Martial Arts has improved my way of working out. I already did the whole working out at a fitness gym for 4 hours a day without getting the results I have gotten by working out at MMMA for 2.5 hours a day. I get a workout ten times better than lifting weights and running on a treadmill.
Training in Muay Thai with coach Jim is a cardio rush like no other from punching and kicking to using your knees. The non-stop workout will push you to the next level. Training BJJ with Coach Darren is where I get my inner core strength plus its a lot more fun than any old gym workout. I have been training at MMMA for 7 months and I have lost 76lbs. My body has had a major change with me losing inches and toning my arms and legs. Both of my trainers give me nutritional advice and I also want to thank the other students in the gym because we all push each other to meet our goals and surpass those goals. We are like a big family with arms wide open for anybody else to join our family."
