Almost anything goes in this martial sport, both in the ring and in the stands. If you don't mind the violence (in the ring) a Thai boxing match is worth attending for the pure spectacle the wild musical accompaniment, the ceremonial beginning of each match and the frenzied betting around the stadium. Thai boxing is also telecast on channel 3 5 7 9 every Sunday afternoon, if you are wondering where everyone is, They are probably in side watching the nation sport.

History of Thai boxing
Most of what is known about the early history of Thai boxing comes from Burmese accounts of warfare between Burma and Thailand during the 15th and 16th centuries.
The earliest reference (1411 AD) mentions a ferocious style of unarmed combat that decided the fate of Thai kings. A later description tell how Nai Khanom Tom, Thailand's first famous boxer and a prisoner of war in Burma, gained his freedom by roundly defeating a dozen Burmese warriors before the Burmese court.
To this day, many martial art aficionados consider the Siamese style the ultimate in hand-to-hand fighting.
Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, the USA, Netherlands, Germany and France have all sent their best and none of the challengers have been able to defeat top-ranked Thai boxers.
On one famous occasion, Hong Kong's top five Kung Fu masters were dispatched in less than 6.30 minutes cumulative total, all knockouts.

travel information, travel services, travel planner, online travel, travel reservation, travel web site King Naresuan the Great (1555-1605)
was supposed to have been a top-notch boxer himself. He made Muay Thai a required part of malitary training for all Thai solders.
Later another Thai King, Phra Chao Seua (the Tiger King) further promoted Thai boxing as a national sport by encouraging prize fights and the development of training camps in the early 18th century. There are accounts of massive wagers and bouts to the death during this time. Phra Chao Seaua is said to have been an incognito participant in many of the matches during the early part of his reign.
Combatants' fists were wrapped in thick horse hide for maximum impact with minimum knuckle damage. They also used cotton soaked in glue and ground glass and later hemp. Tree bark and seashells were used to protect the groin from lethal kicks.

The high incidence of death and physical injury led the Thai government to institute a ban on Muay Thai in the 1920s, but in the '30s, the sport was revived under a modern set of requlations based on the international Queensberry rules.
Bouts were limited to five three-minute rounds separated with two-minute breaks. Contestants had to wear international-style glove and trunks (always) either in red or blue) and their feet were taped but no shoes worn.
There are 16 weight division in Thai boxing, ranging from miniflyweight to heavweight, with the best fighters said to be in the welterweight division (67 kgs., maximum)
As in international -style boxing, matches take place on a 7.3 sqmeter canvas-covered floor with rope retainers supported by four padded posts, rather than the traditional dirt circle. In spite of these concessions to safety today, all surfaces of the body are still considered fair targets and any part of the body may be used to strike an opponent, except the head.
Common blows include high kicks to the neck, elbow thrusts to the face and head, knee hooks to the ribs and low crescent kicks to the calf. A contestant may even grasp an opponent's head between his hands and pull it down to meet an upward knee thrust.
Punching is considered the weakest of all blows and kicking merely a way to "soften up" one's opponent; it is the knee and elbow strikes that are decisive in most matches.

The training of a Thai boxer
and particularly the relationship between boxer and trainer is highly ritualised. When a boxer is considered ready for the ring, he is given a new name by his trainer, usually with the name of the training camp as his surname.
For the public, the relationship is perhaps best expressed in the "ram muay" (Boxing dance) that takes place before every match. The ram muay ceremony usually lasts about five minutes and expressed obeisance to the fighter's guru (khruu), as well as to the guardian spirit of Thai boxing. This is done through a series of gestures and body movement performed in rhythem to ringside musical accompaniment of Thai oboe (pii) and percussion. Each boxer works out his own dance, in conjunction with his trainer and in accordance with the style of his particular camp.

The woven headbands and armbands worn into the ring by fighters are sacred ornaments which bestow blessings and divine protection; the headband is removed after the ram muay ceremony, but the armband, wich actually contains a small Buddha image, is worn throughout the match.
After the bout begins, the fighters continue to bob and weave in rhythm until the action begins to heat up. The musicians continue to play throughtout the match and the volume and tempo of the music rise and fall along with the events in the ring. As Thai boxing has become more popular among Westerners (both spectators and participants) there are increasing numbers of bouts staged for tourists in places like Pattaya, Phuket and Ko Samui.
In these, the action may be genuine but the judging below par. Nonetheless, dozens of authentic matches are held every day of the year at the major Bangkok stadiums and in the provinces (there are about 60,000 full-time boxers in Thailand) and these are easily sought out. Several Thai "nak muay" have gone on to win world championships in international style boxing. Khaosai Galaxy, the geratest Asian boxer of all time, chalked up 19 WBA bantamweight championships in a row be fore retiring undefeated in December 1991.

In Thailand and English language periodical called "Muay Thai: Thai championship Boxing" appears annually at Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket bookshops that sell English language material. The annual includes features on muay Thai events aborad as well as in Thailand.
