Thread: Some Bad Muay Thai RBSD?

doing a flashy demo to entertain a crowd for a half time show type of thing isn't exactly indicative of bullshido.

Besides, here's another question. Would you train in a gym that used this to advertise? Or moreso would you participate in something like this claiming this was t3h r34l muay thai?

If Manu Ntoh (my current thaiboxing coach) did a demo like this, I'd still join his school because he's a badass. I would not join his school based on it, nor would I NOT join his school based on it. It's just a silly demo. I don't really know anything about this Master Sken dude, so he may or may not be full of crap, but I wouldn't count him out just because of this dumb video.
No, I would not participate in a thing where I lunged at my coach with a knife so he could spinning crescent kick me to entertain a crowd, because it looks dumb in my opinion. I would, however, participate in a flashy exhibition where myself and another fighter pretend to KO eachother repeatedly with jumping spinning hook kicks and other such nonsense.

Well, looks like all I can do now is see if there's anything more on this Master Sken guy I guess. I'm still suspicious, especially after watching a couple of techniques from his DVD. I am not a Muay Thai guy though, I just know what my dad's told me and what matches I've watched on TV and youtube.
He does smell fishy but I'll see what I can find and leave it to the people who do MT here to decide.

Muay Thai knife defense: kick that fucker really, really, REALLY hard. Anywhere.

There was a thai boxer a couple years ago that fought off 4-5 knife weilding attackers that tried to rob his grandmothers house.

I don't think that clip is anyone's definition of RBSD ...
It's just a showbiz demo, a bit of flashy fun. 100 years ago, Muay Thai fighters were probably doing the same sort of show to entertain their fellow villagers at harvest festivals.

11/16/2006 11:50pm, #19Well there are to this day ropefist matches that I'd consider more or less the same thing that I imagine have been around for quite a while.
