    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Muay Boran teachers/schools?

    I'm trying to find somewhere that teaches any of the Muay Boran styles or even Krabi Krabong. I've been using google-fu and even Tae Kwon Yahoo but to no avail. I know they are rare styles and even the people who do teach it are usually fakers, and a real practitioner in america might even be non-existent however I was hoping to tap the human collective of Bullshido.

    Also I am planning on visiting Thailand next year, and am looking for a place there that teaches it. The only place I've found is http://www.muaychaiya.com/index_en.html which is not the most intelligible site to read in english, not to mention it is rather costly...600 dollars US a month! Compared to the average muay thai training camps which are usually around 100-200 dollars a month. I am aware that they are fairly different styles contrary to popular belief. Also it being a rare style might warrant a higher price, but 600 dollars almost seems like extorting the rich american ferang :P

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    Krabi Krabong training does exist if you hunt for it. It is pretty rare, though. Honestly, your odds aren't good. And you usually have to supply your own war elephant.

    As for Muay Buran, I'd recommend not even bothering. There are a few schools in Thailand that claim to teach it, but what they're really teaching is usually Muay Thai -- and usually poorly. Competent, quality teachers in Thailand teach modern Muay Thai exclusively.

    And I've never heard of a Muay Buran school -- real or fake -- outside of Thailand.

    It must exist somewhere! Like I said I'm going to thailand so I could train there, though your probably right. Most likely its some old dude who speaks no english who lives in BFE and still thinks of indoor plumbing as devil magic.

    Also Krabi Krabong doesnt have much to do with War Elephants.

    No not really, Krabi Krabong has become a ritualistic dance. Muay Boran however is not.

    Have you ever seen anyone, ever ever ever, use muay boran outside of choreographed rope fight demos?
