    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Muay Thai Sangha, Chaiya, Boran, Krabi Krabong,etc..... In Houston area?

    Yeah, I just moved to the Houston area and I'm looking to get back into MA training. My hometown had no decent gyms/schools. Anyway, some of the more complete styles of muay thai have always interested me. Now I know it would be easier to just sign up at the nearest MMA gym, but I am not that interested in training for the ring and would like learn more about these unique and effective arts. Thanx.

    "Muay Thai Sangha"? I know there's a deep link between Muay Thai and Buddhism since most of the Thai's are Buddhist, but are the training gyms really called "Sanghas?"

    muay thai sangha/sangka

    As far as I know there is only one muay thai sangha school in existence .......

    & you'll find that in Thailand

    www.ancientmuaythai.com


    Doubt you'll be comutting from Huston.

    Even the Boran (ancient) more complete styles of muay thai are pretty much all stand up. They do have clinching, throws & takedowns but no groundwork.

    Good luck on your search

    I can't think of any groundwork in any of the Muay Thai variants so you won't get a complete style I'm afraid. Plus old style fighting teaches highly inpractical moves like scrambling up someone's leg and round housing them in the face. Not brilliant for self defence situations.

    Impractical my ass, I'd love to try that in a street fight.

    Yeah, I think I saw their site a while back. I think they were kind of a combo of a few styles of muaythai. Oh well. I could've sworn I saw some vid clips of MT throws and groundwork in there somewhere. Thanx.

    This video clip says it all. Is that an arm bar? Plus, this actually looks like alot of street fights I've seen, not so much grace there. But hey, with all the 'grace' I've learned, one of those guys could wreck me pretty quick. Ever seen that Chaiya flying elbow onto the top of the skull? I guess its more jumping off the opponents knee and then flying.
