Unlike a two point contact of fists
in traditional boxing, or a four point
contact of hands and feet in other regulated
martial arts sports, Muay Thai kick boxing
is the ultimate.
It’s an eight point contact sports utilizing
punches,kicks,elbows and knees. A no holds
barred phenomena fought with boxing gloves
but with bare feet that facilitate flying kicks
A current rage that feeds on a desire not
usually satiated to inflict hurt craved by
the audience. It may endanger limbs and life.
One is cut out to be a fighter where agility and guile
are of the highest order. A hazard sports
not for the faint hearted where rules are fluid.
A choke forbidden in wrestling is a submission hold
in Muay Thai among others
It may appear to endanger the fighters but the
thrill seekers pay to satisfy their base instincts
That keeps the sports alive!
