    Muay Thai Music?

    I read through the Muay Thai pdf and it seems it has a musical accompaniment. Any MT'ers out there train with the music? Any resources: CD's, books, etc... about the music? Also, any thoughts on the use of those rituals mentioned and the music in modern schools, especially outside of Thailand?

    They play the music during the ceremonial dance, then they play it during the fight at certain speeds to encourage the fighters to fight hard. I just went to a muay thai tournament in NY, and a handful of the fighters did the Wai Kru.

    All our technique training is done to the round music. 5 rounds of MT pad work, punch-block-kick combos etc..., then switch with your partner.

    You can download it from a lot of sites.

    For example, at the bottom of this page:

    Only once, during the 1 hr of conditioning, before the 2nd hr of techniques. But most of the gym prefers metal rap, so it's usually Rage against the Machine, Prodigy, The Street, Eminem, Linkin Park etc.. Not too many of us there that are old enough to have actually been around when Hendrix was still alive...*l*

    Khun Kao, I saw you fight. Your defence was really good. It looked to me (noobie) that you lost a decision because your opponent was more busy.
