This Mai Muay Boran is very well known: a powerful double uppercut punch. However, Muay Korat boxer’s way of performing Hanuman Tawai Waen is different. A single uppercut to the chin that sneaks under the opponent’s punch targeting the chin or throat.


In Muay Korat, short punches like this one are a perfect complement to long range attacks (swing punches and swing kicks).


When the opponent attacks with a straight punch, the Muay Korat stylist steps forward, parries the attack from the outside and counters with a short uppercut aimed at the chin or throat.
