Muay Thai known as the science of 8 limbs rely mostly on kicks and punch and requires an entire body movements. The knee and elbow –these combination of attacks makes Muay Thai a uniquely dangerous martial arts. The kick is a fundamental strike in Muay Thai, it’s a long range fundamental weapon of this sport. The kick’s power comes from the generated rotation of the hips, it’s the same principle that cracks the wit, turning the hips just a few degree forces the foot to travel a much greater distance and creates a lot of speed. The longer the leg and quicker the rotation the faster the kick. Unlike Karate, Muay Thai fighters are also taught to hit the hard bone of the chin. A Muay Thai kick generates roughly the same force as a baseball bat enough to crack a rib or a leg.

 

The elbow –human bone can resist 40 times stress than concrete and unlike most strikes that land with some combination of flesh and bone, the elbow is almost pure bone. The elbow strike, basically it works like a point of a knife. All the force is magnified by being concentrated in a small hard area and even if the elbow doesn’t deliver a knockout it will almost leave a nasty cut on the opponent’s skin.

 

Knee strike –getting in close neutralizes the opponent’s weapon advantage. Unlike the kick that neutralize on rotation to create power, the knee get its power from leverage. Pulling your the opponent down as you drive your knee up can deliver up to 2 and a half tons of force –enough to lift a car.
