In Thailand there is a very famous martial art, Muay Thai. Fight from childhood (10-12 years) and fight with the same rules as adults and without protection! A fight precedes a propitiatory ritual. Repeats the movement three times to pay tribute to the three identities located on different levels. Honor of Buddha, Sangha and Dharma. At the same time, he gives thanks to his teacher, his field and his fighting ancestors. After the Wai Kru, the fighter begins to perform Ram Muay, a slow series of stylized movements performed to the rhythm of the music. The fight ends by knockout or score.
