Muay Boran training and drilling
This is a light sparring drill I always do called the “Muay Boran” drill, for reasons vaguely explained below. It’s a good way to practice some real sparring scenarios while doing no damage, although it does take some practice. Cheers.
Muay boran (Thai: มวยโบราณ, rtgs: muai boran, IPA: [mūɛj bōːrāːn], lit. “ancient boxing“) or originally “Toi Muay”(ต่อยมวย) is an umbrella term for the unarmed martial arts of Thailand prior to the introduction of modern equipment and rules in the 1930s.
In the ancient empire of Siam “Thailand“, each region had their own “regional unique style” of guard, stance, footwork and striking techniques, be they “Muay Jerng” of the north, “Muay Korat” of the Northeast, “Muay Chaiya” of the south, etc. Their uniquely different ways of guards, stance, footwork, striking techniques and hand wraps (kard chuekคาดเชือก) clearly represent their own unique regional style.
