The Art of the Eight Limbs

Muay Thai, also known as The Art of the Eight Limbs is the Thai name for a form of hard martial art practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Thailand. It is known as Pradal Serey in Cambodia, Tomoi in Malaysia, Muay Lao in Laos and as a similar style called Lethwei in Burma. The different styles of kickboxing in Southeast Asia are analogous to the different types of Kung Fu in China or Silat in the Malay peninsula. The Thai military uses a modified form of Muay Thai called Lerdrit.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending one of the training sessions at the first Muay Thai school in Brunei Darussalam. Busiido Martial Arts Dojo is a multi-disciplinary dojo located at Melabau Complex near the airport. They conduct classes in Karate, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, and Boxing. Apart from that, there are also classes in modern dance, yoga, and traditional body conditioning.
