    First they have Muay Thai, then a few episodes later, they do Chinese Muay Thai (San Da) and then this episode is Cambodian Muay Thai. Cool.

    Next time you see Inosanto, if you ever do, show it to him and he'll probably tell you what specific arts use that particular variation.

    The episodes are getting better, despite the boring formula. This episode was more history lesson and less mugging for the camera.

Given a constant process of re-invention, borrowing etc. over centuries, and given that there's often a lot of nationalistic sentiment involved with questions of martial arts lineage, that debate probably isn't worth having ...

    In Bokator, any part of the body can be used as a weapon, including fingers, hips, jaws and shoulders. Techniques in Bokator include strikes, throws, trapping, locking, grappling and ground-fighting, as well as sword and stick maneuvers.
    I read somewehre that the grandmaster fled cambodia, during the war, went to texas teaching hapkido, went back to cambodia yeaaaaaaaars later, looking for surviving bokator teachers, and joined up all together n stuff to teach it, because it was banned from the KR, it almost became extinct/ppl was scared to teach it still.

    Ok ok my fav part was the story about how Bokator was created. About the man kicking the Lion in the balls and it rolled on its back and die. And thats how Bokator was created LOL not only did im miss about half the ep from laughing about that, I also wonder this....

    If i kill another animal by kicking it in the balls, will i be granted the knowledge of a new MA?

    A bear?

    A Goat?

    A Hampster?


    so if i dont show up on here for a wile its because; I didnt kill the animal it killed me.
