    "Muay Boran
    Muay Boran is the predecessor to Muay Thai, hence the word Boran which means ancient. This Thai fighting style developed over thousands of years but its origin is unknown. It was develop as a self-defense system to defend against Burmese invaders. This ancient art compose many techniques from different style within various tribes in different regions of Siam (now known as Thailand.) It incorporates not only striking techniques but also locking, throwing, submission holds, choking, and blows directly to pressure points. Ancient Thai warriors taught in this art are also strongly influence with the Buddhist way of life. An essential part of their training includes meditation and performing spiritual ceremony ritual called the “Ram”. It is meant to focus the mind and to pay homage to the gods and the spirits of their ancestors. Apart from uses in warfare, Muay Thai was considered an activity for fitness training and competition.

It was stated that these 100 additional moves were taken out because they are "too deadly for the ring". My thoughts on this are that muay thai (at least until fairly recently) consisted of very dangerous strikes including downward spikey elbows to the top of the head and knees to the face. It would be my GUESS that the 100 extra moves were removed simply to make muay thai training more efficient, and that the additional moves have survived over time largely due to traditionalist sentiments of the thai people.

    Any thoughts, or info on this subject? I really don't know much about the history or evolution of muay thai, so if anyone could provide some resources on the subject I'd be really interested to read. Thanks.

    LOL sounds like alot of TALKING OUT THE ASS going on there.

    Next time they say 100 Techs were taken out ask them to name them. :violent5:

    Even though I love ONG BAK as well pple need to remember that it was MT (MOVIE THAI) and thus looks better than it does in real life.

    Muay Boran has hip throws. They are barred in modern MT competition and thus not trained....

    I've learned plenty of "not for ring" Muay Thai.

    That's nothing, I once saw a TKD guy cut another guys head clean off with a spinning hook kick.

    Also saw a MT guy kick another guys leg clean off the body with a low round kick.

    What's the difference between hip throws and the takedowns commonly seen in muay thai competitions?
