Muay Lopburi fighters are trained to use body weapons to offend and defend. They also learn how to grab, throw and break the joints of the opponent. This technique is one of the basic systems to grab a kick and throw the opponent.


Throwing and finishing on the ground is one of the traditional fighting strategies used by Muay Lopburi boxers to subdue their opponents. A properly executed throw is a very efficient system to end a fight, quickly.


When the opponent attacks with a roundhouse kick to the midsection, the Lopburi fighter sidesteps to deprive the kick of its power and grabs the attacking leg. After countering with a knee strike to the abdomen he spins around and takes the opponent down, face first.
