Muay Thai is a stand-up combat sport that originates from Thailand, known as the art of the eight limbs because it combines the use of fists, elbows, knees, kicks along with various stand-up clinching techniques.

KRAV MAGA - Israeli Combat Self Defence System. KRAV MAGA is well known as the most efficient and realistic fighting system in the world today. It is very different from sport based fighting arts. In fact it is often difficult for an advanced martial artist from a traditional background to learn as it does not have a flowing style. It is also not really a martial art as it was created for the Military, but KRAV MAGA is certainly a Modern Combat Fighting System that has evolved into a popular, realistic and non-flashy self defence method of training.
