Siam Rehab is probably the only rehab facility in the world with a regulation Muay Thai boxing ring onsite.
Muay Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. The word “Muay” means “combat” and is derived from the Sanskrit word “Muay” which literally means “unite together”. The word “Thai” is an adjective of the Thai nation with its meaning being “free people”. Therefore, when combined and simplified, the word Muay Thai can be translated to “Thai boxing / combat”.
Muay Thai was developed several hundreds years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon. It also known as “the art of 8 limbs” as fighter use 8 weapons when sparring against their opponents: 2 feet, 2 knees, 2 elbows and 2 fists. Over the past 100 years Muay Thai has significantly progressed into the disciplined sport it is today.
