Unlike most martial arts, Muay Thai has developed a unique but basic form of block and defense against a variety of offensive techniques. Many martial art systems have over the years begun to adapt much of the Thai fighting system, many calling it their own. Many new fighting arts have contributed much of the martial arts of Thailand including Muay Thai to their newly developed system...
This can only benefit the continuing growth of Muay Thai, as many have begun to return to the basic format of Thai boxing once realizing that without proper instruction and or with out the correct concept, the simplicity of Muay Thai cannot be accurately achieved.
