The traditional Martial Arts of Thailand are gaining popularity worldwide, especially Muay Thai- Thai Kick Boxing and Muay Boran Traditional Thai Combat Arts of Hand to Hand. Muay Thai is known as one of the most effective forms of empty-hand combat in the world. Those who have seen professional bouts of Thai Boxing have witnessed Karate, Kung Fu, and other Arts meet their brutal end at the flashing elbows and knees of the Thai fighters.

As a result we have seen fighting systems and schools of hand to hand adopt the “Thai Style” and traditional systems of combat adopted and integrated widely. The most famous system of traditional Martial Arts in Thailand is that of the Buddhai Sawan Hall of Revivals National Culture Center and Thai Sword Fighting Institute.
