Arafura Games – Muaythai

April 27 @ 7:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00 am, repeating until May 2, 2019

Muaythai is the ancient art of 8 limbs. Full contact technique allows kick, punch, knee and elbow striking at all ranges; clinching (where fighters can effectively strike with the elbow and knee) and sweeping tactics (where opponents are brought to the ground).

Athletes in the Elite A Class will display tremendous power, maximum efficiency and raw simplicity in a bid to qualify for The World Games 2021, in Birmingham, USA. The quality of competition will be second to none.

Trivia
While IFMA’s Rules & Regulations stipulate the rounds of a Muaythai bout to last 3 minutes each, the sport’s original method for timing these rounds around the 1900s was quite unique: a pierced coconut shell placed in water! When the coconut filled with water and sunk, the round was over.
