Muaythai

The Art of Eight Limbs

Muaythai (มวยไทย) or literally “Thai Boxing” is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This discipline is known as the “Art of Eight Limbs” as it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins.

I guess you can say it was my first muse. I’ve had the luck and pleasure of shooting Muaythai events since 2007 — in the United States, Eastern Europe, and of course Thailand. All images were published by Fury Magazine (2007-2015).
