    I happen to know it, because one of the instructors at my gym used to require it. But he hasn't been around for months, and the rest of the instructors are pretty ambivalent about it. Personally, I find it kind of LARPy and silly. I'd consider it no great loss if I never learned it.
    There's nothing LARPy about demonstrating your culture. Although I do agree that in Western countries, the Ram Muay isn't really necessary.

    "Holy crap" is right! You never see such dead on punches in Muay Thai matches in the States.

    I aspire to have hands as good as theirs. But, of course that means training 6 hours a day for 6 days a week...

    The Wai Kru and Ram Muay are expressions of the culture and religion. I respect the style as a student and also respect the culture as a result.

    The dances are expressions of respect to your teachers, family, & spirituality. They also indicate your fighting lineage. People who know the different dances can tell what camp you come from. Your mastery of the dance is also a reflection on your mastery or the art itself.

    Since I can't give rep in this forum, I will repost in super agreement.

    I agree whole heartedly with everything else except for this. I don't see how mastering the dance reflects the mastery of the art (martial art that is, of thai boxing). Ive been doing thai boxing for 2 years and fought in smokers etc... and have yet to learn the ram muay. It reflects culture but not the skill or mastery of the art.

    I'm not saying that if you suck at the ceremony then your Muay Thai sucks but I think that the reverse is true. If your Wai Kru & Ram Muay is tight then you most likely have good Muay Thai.
