UNLEASH YOUR INNER WARRIOR.
Legacy of Siamese warriors.
mother art of thai boxing.
Behind the world famous combat sport known as Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing, exists a vast variety of traditional unarmed Thai martial arts which are unified under the name of Muay (Thai) Boran. It was developed by Siamese warriors and masters of fighting. Skills and training methods which brought victory in realistic situations were passed on to future generations.
Because of its origins in actual battlefields, Muay Boran is a straightforward and efficient martial art. It utilizes 9 natural body weapons for attacking, defending, grappling maneuvers as well as throwing, pinning, gripping and breaking techniques.
In International Muay Boran Academy (IMBA), practicing Muay Boran consists of learning battle-born skills and mixing both traditional and modern training methods for the contemporary needs of self-defense, fitness and combat sports as well as recreational martial arts study. Actually, it is one of the oldest forms of fitness training that has proved its effectiveness over millennia.
