Just like any other martial art even Muay Thai incorporates training drills using special tools geared towards increasing a thai boxers attributes.
In modern times the evolution of archaic training methods led to the introduction of special leather hitting pads called Pao that the trainer uses during any training session. The versatility of those tools makes them a very good piece of equipment that can be used to train every attack and defense movement including elbow strikes, knee strikes, punches and kicks, simple attacking series and block and counter techniques. Every good Kru Muay knows how to use those pads to simulate actual fighting sessions pushing a fighter to his limits without forgetting to avoid any possible injuries.
