Muay Boran Technique and Accessories Demonstration

Col. Nattapong Buayam, a former Thai spec-ops hand-to-hand and weapons instructor, trained elite troops in Southeast Asia on the combative essence of krabi krabong (Thai traditional weaponry) and muay Boran (the forefather to muay Thai) for decades. The aggressive footwork and rapid-fire weapon attacks make it a nightmare to defend against. Black Belt contributing editor Dr. Mark Cheng traveled to Thailand to train intensively with the colonel. In this exclusive video, Cheng and Buayam demonstrate techniques and accessories from the art of muay boran.
