The Estonian Muay Thai Federation was founded in 2007, today the association brings together
19 Thai boxing clubs from all over Estonia.
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand.
It was developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon.
Today its definitive origins are debated by modern scholars, as much of the muay thai history
was lost when the Burmese ransacked Ayudhaya, Siam’s capital city in Thailand, during the 14th century.
Most written muya thai history was lost when the Burmese looted the temples and depositories
of knowledge held in Ayudhaya, and what volumes were saved are now national treasures
that are preserved and protected as documentation for Thai culture and heritage.
