Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to equip a physically smaller or weaker individual with an effective method of defending against a larger and stronger attacker. The fight is taken to the ground and the opponent controlled and ultimately submitted by joint locks or chokes. It requires an intense amount of focus and strategy.
Muay Thai is known as, “the art of eight limbs.” This refers to the eight points of contact used including the fists, elbows, knees, and shins. In Thai culture, Muay Thai is closely linked with Buddhism and the martial art itself emphasizes values such as respect, humility, self-control, and compassion.
