Muay Thai, also called Thai Boxing, is the national martial art and sport of Thailand. Many people think of Thai Boxing as only a kickboxing ring sport, but it is much more. Besides proving itself as the toughest ring sport through its use of kicks, punches, elbows, knees and standing grappling, Thai boxing is excellent for street self-defense.
The training itself is a great workout and develops physical and mental conditioning, toughness and a "keep-going" attitude. The instructors at Princeton Academy of Martial Arts are certified by Ajarn Chai Sirisute, founder of the Thai Boxing Association of the USA. Ajarn Chai is the first-ever Thai boxing instructor to teach Americans this art.
