The precise origins of Muaythai are disputed, though the martial art form is said to have developed between one to two thousand years ago in Southeast Asia. It became an effective technique practised by the soldiery of the ancient kingdoms of Siam, for the protection of their lands and borders. A weapons bearing form of the martial art existed, as well as the unarmed form for defensive close combat. A warfare manual named “Chupasart” was written, which emphasized the martial uses of each part of the body, in harmony with the commitment of mind, body and soul.
