    Some fluidity, some rigidity. It looks like something else I've seen, but I cannot remember what / where.
    I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

    Bokator is to Cambodia what Kung Fu is to China and Muay Boran is to Thailand.

    Pradal serey is to Bokator what Sand Da is to Kung Fu and Muay Thai is to Muay Boran.

    Bokator, Muay Boran, and the CMA pantheon are all traditional (vast) systems. Predal serey, Sanda, and Muay Thai are the modern, heavily combat condensed sport versions.

    I think most on Bullshido would lean towards Prada serey as an effective art, but I'm sure there are some Bokator schools that train with the same aliveness.

    Case in point, here's a comment.

    Real bokator would have ended with one of the fighters dying. This *****-ass bullshit "competitive sports" bokator is lamed down and emarassing to watch. Bokator is for warriors

    Here you go... what's not to like? Maybe a little start/stoppy?
