About Muay Thai - Thai Kickboxing
The full origins of Muay Thai were lost when the Burmese sacked Siam's capital of Ayutthaya in 1769. Muay Thai reached its height in popularity during the reign of Pra Chau Sua (1703-1709).
Prize fights were regularly held in every village, hands and arms were bound with horse hide to protect the arms-hands and inflict maximum damage to the opponent.
In the 1970's boxing gloves and groin guards were introduced for safety.
