What is a Muay Thai Punching Bag?

Posted by

Muay Thai, or Thai boxing is not your typical western style boxing. The fighters could use their legs in kicking or kneeing the opponent. They could also use their elbows. In training for the sport, the standard equipment used is Muay Thai punching bags. This allows the Thai boxers to practice using their legs aside from punching.

These types of punching bags are usually thinner in diameter than the regular punching bags used for boxing. Though a standard 6-foot bag could be used for Muay Thai training, the longer and thinner shape of the Thai bags is more appropriate to use for the attack moves used in eight point philosophy.
