Thai Boxing in Bangkok

Muay Thai in Bangkok

Muay Thai may seem like a violent sport but learning it properly can be a fun and worthwhile experience. Many people, regardless of age and sex, turn to Muay Thai for self-defence. A typical Muay Thai boxing match usually starts with 2 fighters going through their spiritual wai khru (a ceremony to thank their revered teachers, spirits, boxing ring and the sport itself).

The blaring sound of Thai classical instruments and the deafening cheering of ecstatic spectators in the stadium don't seem to distract the 2 'warriors'. Following the ritual, they go straight into Ram Muay, a dance where each boxer demonstrates his skills and style. These pre-match ceremonies are believed to bring good luck, protection, respect, and a fair and honourable fight to the boxers. Once all the formalities are out of the way, it's time for action.
