IMBA’s Muay Boran Curriculum is based on 4 technical pillars: Nawarthawooth, Chern Muay Muay, Kon Muay Kae, Mae Mai-Look Mai. Every Khru Muay Boran should be well versed in all four elements.
Muay Thai is the Siamese Martial Art of the nine natural weapons, Nawarthawut: hands, elbows, legs, knees and head are trained and prepared by being used as offensive weapons equal to axes, daggers, spears and clubs. These same body parts are also ably used as protective shields to neutralize offences from adversaries in an efficient, and often decisive, way in the face of a real attack.
