It’s been 23 years already… at the time I was attending numerous gala’s and I have kept an excellent memory of this trip to Dortmund. A warm welcome, a very professional and passionate organisation, a very diverse program and prestigious athletes. That year, I had the pleasure to perform on the same stage as the fabulous Jean Frenette from Quebec. Good continuation, and sincere friendships developed ever since. - Eric Pariset

Muay Thai (WIP)

Muay Thai (Thai: มวยไทย, RTGS: Muai Thai, [mūaj.tʰāj] ) is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques.
This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient.
Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.
A professional league is governed by the World Muay Thai Council.
