The name FITE108 was conceived out of recognition towards two gyms that supported Tim with his training and success. Tim wanted to show his respect and tribute to both of these gyms and created FITE108 as his own identity.
"FITE came about as I had trained for many years at a gym called Fite N Fitness. 108 came from the time I trained with 108Supalek. 108 also means the Traditional Head Peace Mongkon that is worn during the entry of a Muay Thai fight, it has 108 strings and Thai tradition states that they bring you protection". - Tim Drury

The term Muay Thai was derived from Sanskrit - Mavya and Tai. In English, the name is translated as "The Art of Eight Limbs" and sometimes called "The Science of Eight Limbs".
