THAI /MUAY BORAN
Muay Thai, translated into English as Thai Boxing, is the national sport
of Thailand and is a martial art with origins in the ancient(Boran) battlefield tactics
of the Siamese (or Thai) army. It evolved from
literally sword and baton, the hand-to-hand tactics of the Royal Thai army.
The early Muay Boran Thai bouts pitted different companies within the Siamese army
against each other with few rules and no weight divisions or time limits.
They became quite popular and eventually were shown in stadia across the country.
In the early 20th century, time limits, boxing gloves as well as a uniform set
of rules were introduced. During the latter half of the 20th century Muay
Boran Thai was exported to many countries and is now practiced by hundreds of thousands
of people all over the world.
Muay Thai or
Muay Boran is known as "King of the Ring".. These fights feature punches, kicks, elbows, knees,
standing grappling and head-butts to wear down and knock out their opponent.
Muay Thai Boran training methods develop devastating power, speed and superb cardio-vascular
endurance as well as fighting spirit. Muay Boran training as also
quite safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that evolved to keep fighters
healthy between fights. Muay Thai Boran has also proven very effective outside
the ring and has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety
of self-defense, sporting, military and law enforcement activities.
