Muay Boran is a traditional martial art from Thailand that dates back several hundred years. It is considered the ancestor of the modern sport of Muay Thai, which is a popular form of martial arts that is widely practiced today.
The term “Muay Boran” translates to “ancient boxing” or “traditional boxing” in Thai. It involves the use of the entire body as a weapon, including the fists, elbows, knees, and feet. Muay Boran techniques are generally considered to be more diverse and versatile than modern Muay Thai techniques.
In addition to being a martial art, Muay Boran was also used as a form of military training in ancient times. It is still taught and practiced today, both as a sport and as a means of self-defense.
