The art of Muay (Boxing) is known as Muay Lao in Laos, Muay Thai in Thailand, Kun Khmer in Cambodia and Lethwei in Burma. Also called the art of eight limbs, this traditional combat art combines stand-up striking techniques and clinching techniques. Knowledge of punching, elbow and knee striking and kicking is transmitted by master to student in boxing camps.

South East Asian nations practice this art as a way to honor ancestors and celebrate their warrior roots during boxing bouts where the values displayed are those of respect, discipline and honor.
