Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand, is a martial art and combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques.
Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves and other protective equipment such as hand wraps and mouthguards, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring.
Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport based on ground fighting and submission holds. It focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one’s opponent, gaining a dominant position and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds.

As more developing research studies emerge, exercise science proves no matter what your goals are in fitness, the benefits to your performance and overall well-being can vastly improve if you train both aerobically and anaerobically. One example of this benefit is how long-distance runners have started including sprint training into their exercise programs with amazing results.
