Photo Essay

The Art of Eight Limbs


While western boxing is known as "The sweet science", Muay Thai is commonly refereed to as the ART of eight limbs. Two fists, two shins, two knees, two elbows and two combatants. These photos hopefully give you a brief glimpse of the beauty surrounding this ancient art in in home, Thailand. I plan to contribute more detailed photo essays on the fights, training and behind the scene/culture.

I welcome your feedback and comments.

    I think this is a fine series of images. You capture very well the intensity and the emotion. Each image is strong, but the whole is even stronger. Congratulations.
