The traditional Martial Arts of Thailand are gaining popularity worldwide, especially Muay Thai- Thai Kick Boxing and Muay Boran, the Traditional Thai Combat Arts of Hand to Hand. 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. Muay Thai is one of the most effective forms of empty-hand combat worldwide.
As a result, we have seen fighting systems and schools of hand-to-hand adopt the “Thai Style” and traditional methods of combat adopted and integrated widely. The most famous form of traditional Martial Arts in Thailand is that of the Buddhai Sawan Hall of Revivals National Culture Center and Thai Sword Fighting Institute. The formal curriculum, as defined and taught by the late Grand Master Phaa Kruu Samaii Mesamarn, included Nine Weapon Systems, Hand to Hand/ Empty Hand (Muay Thai, Muay Boran, Muay Chaiya, Fan Dhaap), Thai Yoga (Reussi Dottan– Reishi Yoga), Meditation (Vipassana– Thai Insight Meditation) and Traditional Thai Medicine (Ryksaa Thang Nuat Phaen Boran Thai– Wat Po Traditional Medical School Association style)
Muay Boran is taught as integral to the Krabi Krabong study and shares a familiar origin story. The Buddhai Sawan Institute’s teaching of Thai culture and martial arts of Thailand is seen worldwide.
“Krabi Krabong, The Tiger Sword of Thailand” is written and illustrated with many images and photos by one of the very first “falang” Master teachers, “Ajahn,” of the original Buddhai Sawan lineage and tradition. From traditional fighting arts to meditation and healing, A Buddhai Sawan “Gold Sash” master teacher, “Kruu” since 1984, Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James presents the original and authentic Thai Krabi Krabong.
