For those that aren’t familiar with Muay Thai, it comes from Thailand. Glorified in many action movies for its devastating power, Thai Boxing incorporates striking with the fists, elbows, knees and feet. Like most competitive full contact fighting sports, Muay Thai has a heavy focus on body conditioning. Thai pad training is a cornerstone of Muay Thai conditioning which involves practicing punches, kicks, knees, and elbow strikes with a trainer wearing thick pads which cover the forearms and hands.
