Combat Muay Boran is a Noble martial art. This means that its practitioners learn to strike, hold, throw and break the joints. The locking and throwing maneuvers are used as a complement to striking, both offensively and defensively. This Mai Muay is a throwing technique against a kick.


When the opponent kicks he opens himself to a counterattack due to his unstable position. If the kick doesn’t connect with the intended target, grabbing the attacking leg and throwing the kicker becomes rather easy. Combat Muay Boran stylists know this very well and train accordingly.


When the opponent steps forward and throws a straight kick to the upper body, a Combat Muay Boran expert knows how to sidestep and grab the attacking leg. Spinning around, pulling up the trapped leg up and pushing down with his forearm he can throw him on his back, slamming the back of his head onto the ground.
