Thai Boxing (Muay Thai): When it comes to unique things to do in Phuket, Muay Thai is an electrifying spectacle to watch. Visit Saphan Hin Stadium in Phuket City to see regular matches with well-trained martial arts experts. Or try Patong Beach, where you can also see the skill and dexterity of these super-fit fighters. Tradition and courtesy are at the heart of this dangerous contact sport and a good Muay Thai participant is ultra-disciplined in spirit as well as body.

Muay thai is a lethal strikin art. Uses the 8 point technique, utilizing hands, feet, elbows, knees. Highly telegraphed moves though, so if you are faster, or have techniques for that, such as in Aikido, this isn't as good in my opinion. Very brutal powerhouse art though. Kids train and will kick trees until the trees shake just to toughen up their legs.
I love Tony Jaa. He has become my favorite person to watch in movies. He is a Thai martial artist, specializing in Muay Thai. He is an actor, action choreographer, film producer and director, stuntman, physical educator and has spent time as a Buddhist Monk. He is mesmerizing to watch and I love what his characters stand for.
