Muay Boran is different from Bokator and Kbach Kun Khmer Boran (Khmer martial arts). Historically, the first Thais have assimilated Khmer culture and probably Khmer martial arts (both derive from Indian culture), but more than 400 years have passed since the fall of the Khmer empire, years in which the Thais were able to further develop their martial arts system, evolving it and making it their own. The same goes for Cambodia, which has certainly further evolved its martial art from that seen on the reliefs of Angkor Wat (A Khmer temple for those who don't know). To the expert eye, the differences between Kbach Kun Boran Khmer and Muay Boran are immediately recognizable, although the arts may be similar (similarities, among other things, present in almost all the martial arts of Southeast Asia, including in Lethwei which dates back to 1200 BCE That is when there was not even a trace of the Khmer kingdom) (The precursor kingdom of the Khmer empire, the kingdom of Funan dates back to the 50/68 CE), but they are also very different. The real problem arises when the Cambodian people start selling Muay Boran as a Khmer martial art. There are many informative videos on the internet on Bokator and other Khmer martial arts, which also include footage of Muay Boran and Thai fighters (This almost makes me laugh at how silly it is). Muay Boran videos (including mine) are full of people referring to it as Khmer martial art, and it's full of somewhat defamatory articles against Muay Thai and Muay Boran in favor of Khmer martial arts, with no rational evidence of why one is better than the other. It almost seems that Cambodians are trying to pass on Thai culture as a subculture/extension of Khmer and Cambodian culture, which is morally unacceptable, given that every culture, regardless of origin and who inspired it, is unique, in all its nuances. Also, it almost seems that Cambodians consider every aspect of Thai martial arts of Khmer origin, they use the typical ropes around fists, which is a Thai characteristic, of which there is evidence in Thai history since 1600, while it is not known if they were used in Cambodia since in the old black and white photos that have come down to us Cambodian fighters fight bare-handed. The point of this text is to inform people, to see with your own eyes and mind the similarities and differences, to respect each culture in all its uniqueness, without offending or devaluing without reason, without being possessed by nonsensical nationalism.

Muay Thai It comes from the word มวย that means fight, and ไทย means Thai.
muay thai type
1.muay korat(strong punch)
2.muay lopburi(clever)
3.muay chaiya (good step)
4.muay tasao (fastest)
5.muay thai physically (popular, use for training your body)
6.muay lertrit (use for training thai soldiers)
1-4 is old But you can actually use it because it's both dumping, slashing, catching and breaking.
5 is new use It's for sports.

I was aware that muay thai/boran was an umbrella term for various Thailand martial arts, but I never really davelled into it. This was cool to see. The one that was the most surprising was the one mixed with aikido.

In the center region, the eldest style is Muay Chaiya. My grandpa used to tell a story for me. It's different from the northern region of Thailand, Lanna kingdom, they have their own style of muay and it's not the same as muay siam.
