History of Muaythai in FISU

Muaythai is a full-contact combat sport. Known as “the art of eight limbs,” muaythai is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins of a competitor to strike an opponent.

 

Muaythai first joined forces with FISU in 2015 for the Muaythai University World Cup. Athletes from 43 countries representing all five continents took part. Since then, muaythai’s standing in sport has grown. In 2016, the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur, the sport’s governing body, was officially recognised. Muaythai joins the FISU World University Championships for the first time in 2018.

 

Practitioners of muaythai say it isn’t just a sport; rather, it’s a culture, a way of life. Now muaythai and the five pillars guiding the sport – honour, respect, fair play, tradition, and excellence – continue to grow on university campuses.
