Lai Tai - Ancient Burmese MA
Hey guys I cam across this while trying to find what Arakan MA (taught in australia) is called in Burma.
Its called Lai Tai. I know i've had my fair share of battles in defending Arakan MA on this forum however, even if Lai Tai is not Arakan MA, I hope it will help you see that there ARE ancient martial arts not yet popularised in the world today.
Check it out!
(I think i should change my username too haha, gets a bit confusing)
Jus becaust there are ancient martial arts still practicied today

No independently verified third party evidence for it as a burmese or even as an ancient art exists.
true SE Asian martial arts(Burma is part of SE Asia)
resemble Silat/Krabi Krabong/Muay Boran/Muay Thai/Kali/Escrima
I'm wondering if this has been confused with Lei Tai, the raised platform used for fighting in CMA, or the associated rule set.
Actually, I think the similarity points to a shared origin; lei tai, lai tai, lei thwe, etc...
Its basically Muay Thai with headbutts, kidney punches and no gloves.
I'd heard of it before.
Arakan is ****. Accept it. Go do boxing or something.
hahahahahahahaha.....hahahaha. oh man ur a funny guy!!

You do realize that by posting in MABS, you will be held to a higher standard.
Prove your art is what you say it is.
well, ive been through this bs before. The only way is to experience a free no obligation lesson. Which i guarentee that anyone that does will have a new respect for Arakan MA. So feel free to put my word to the test.
What i was trying to say is that Arakan ma is not called Arakan in burma (it is or was a state). Now, Lai Tai, sounds very similar to Arakan MA in the fact that both arts use hits, kicks, elbows, daggers, short sword bo staff ect.
According to this video, This is the first time Lai Tai has been show or videoed to the western world. it also happens to be taught by monks from burma.
I just came across it looking for an ancient burmese MA.
No, you were looking for justification for the comments in this thread:
Instead of continuing that discussion you decided to create a new thread.
He was already found wanting. Obviously, he wants to try a "fresh" start.

Are you familiar with Encyclopedia Brown? I think he would say, do some more research, put down the koolaid, and admit Akaran is a made up art.
