Imagine this Women's Nick Kwiatkoski Jersey , two combatants enter a ring to face each other with only their own bodies to use as weapons. What tools can they use to defend both themselves and to defeat their opponent? To take an inventory, they can punch with their fists, use their elbows when in close, then grab to tie them up and throw a few knee strikes. To complete these human weapons, they can also launch an arsenal of kicks that includes one so powerful Women's Josh Bellamy Jersey , you had better hide your Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Many a Thai fighter representing their national sport, have demonstrated the power of their kick by breaking this symbol of America's national sport, in half!

Sound a little scary? This little known fringe sport is rapidly becoming popular outside the borders of Thailand. Called Muay Thai, it literally means "The Eight Weapons." Two fists, two elbows Women's Marcus Cooper Jersey , two knees, and two shins are the tools a Muay Thai combatant trains and hones to perfection. Rounds are fought much like western boxing. Rounds are three minutes long, and bouts are in a roped ring. Gloves are worn, but nothing covers their other weapons.

To allow a degree of safety for the fighters and to create a sport, bloody as it is Women's Tom Compton Jersey , Muay Thai includes a minimum number of rules. These rules include no headbutts, attacking the eyes, fish hooking, or biting.

Muay Thai Kickboxing started back in the medieval ages when wars were fought with bows and arrows, swords Women's Dion Sims Jersey , and pikes. And in hand-to-hand combat arms, legs, knees, and elbows were also used as weapons. This sport which was included in military training was made famous by King Nareusan 1560 A.D. During one of the many battles between Burma and Siam he was captured. The Burmese knew of his prowess as the best unarmed fighter in the realm and gave him a chance to fight with their best for his freedom.

Upon his return to Siam he was hailed as a hero and Siamese-style boxing, as it was called then Women's Quintin Demps Jersey , was soon recognized as a national sport. Boxing in this style reached its zenith of popularity about two hundred years ago, i.e., in the reign of Prachao Sua (King Tiger), when it was indulged in by all classes of the population.

From those days up until the early part of this century, the fighters Women's Mike Glennon Jersey , particularly those in provinces, used horsehide strips and later help in lieu of gloves. It was also a practice at one time to grind pieces of glass into the help if both contestants agreed. Since these practices were obviously dangerous to the fighters' health, regular boxing gloves were introduced about 50 years ago and have been used ever since. To the Thais, Muay Thai is regarded as a prestigious national sport. Thai boys will in one or another way, intentionally or unintentionally Women's Eddie Goldman Jersey , learn how to box Thai style. Even Thai girls will know enough of the basic principles and to be able to use it for self-defense when necessary.

Muay Thai, called Thai Boxing by foreigners, is Thailand's national sport and is now getting more popular in many countries, especially in the U.S. and Japan where this fighting style is called "Kickboxing." At present "Kick Boxing" is an internationally known sport itself, and is a very big part of the fastest growing new sport in the world Women's Kevin White Jersey , Mixed Martial Arts.

NAIROBI, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- More than 20,000 runners have registered to take part in the 14th edition of the Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon scheduled for Sunday.

The chairman of the local organizing committee Peter Gitau told journalists on Friday that last year's winners Joshua Kipkorir and Elizabeth Rumokol are among the runners who have enlisted for the annual event.

"This year's event promises to be very competitive as more elite runners have registered to take part in the race, whereas last year's winners have vowed to give their all to defend their titles," Gitau said.

About 700 athletes have registered for the full marathon; 7,000 for the half marathon; 8,000 for 10km; whereas the 5km and wheelchair races will take up the balance of the competitors, said Gitau.

All the proceeds from the race will be used to fund the bank's 'Seeing is Believing' initiative which is focused on eradication of avoidable blindness in Kenya. Since the inception of the event in 2003, more than one million US dollars have been raised to sponsor cataract, glaucoma and trauma-related surgeries for 6,000 needy children.

Last year's event had its fair share of drama when one shady character named Julus Njogu, stood strategically at the entrance of Nyayo Stadium (which was the finish line) waiting for an opportunity to jump into the race at the last minute.

Armed with full racing gear complete with bib number, Njogu jumped into the men's 42km line behind the runner who was headed for the runners-up position and almost whizzed past the winner.

To hide his craftiness, Njogu splashed himself with water to camouflage that body which had neither sweat nor the white body salt normally exuded by athletes after a race. He was promptly arrested after this stunt.

Organizers have promised that this year's race will be devoid of such incidents during the event which is expected to raise about 400,000 US dollars for charity.

The Nairobi County Traffic Commandant Leonard Katana reported that roads along the race route will be closed between 4.00am and 1.00pm local time.

Chinese football fans on Sunday celebrated Guangzhou Evergrande Football Club's winning of the 2013 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League title, the first Chinese club to win the Asian championship in 23 years.

The Guangzhou-based professional club drew with South Korea's FC Seoul 1-1 at home and took the trophy on away goals in the second and final leg on Saturday in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province following a 2-2 draw in Seoul.

The feat of Evergrande, the triple Chinese Super League champions u.
