Why Muay Lao is not popular like Muay Thai ?
Permalink   


Muay Lao (also known as Lao Boxing or Lao Kickboxing in English) is a form of kickboxing practiced in Laos. It's also a branch of the many Indo-Chinese kickboxing styles. Other form of kickboxing from the region, for example, are Pradal Serey from Cambodia, Muay Thai from Thailand and Lethwei from Myanmar (Burma).

Like any other Indo-Chinese kickboing styles, Muay Lao includes attacks from knees, elbows, punches and kicks. In episode 170 of King of the Hill, Kahn uses Laotian martial arts (probably Muay Lao) to fight in street fights.

Unfortunately, we don't have any further information about this traditional Lao martial art. But, you can watch it on a video below:

The reason probably due to the lack of promotion,
If we have more money, the world will know more about our Muay Lao

All SEA (South East Asian) Martial Arts are from the Khmer empire (since the 1st century A.D.). The Khmer-Mon (khmers ancestors) were issued from a mixed culture (Indians settlers and locals) that appeared in the mekong delta (today belonging to Vietnam) and spread over SEA Thaïland, West of Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and even Vietnam.

At this time, the khmers were ruling all SEA, until the 14e Century, when the thaïs from Ayuthaya, sacked Angkor and recovered their Sovereignty. Lao was even ruled by and great king raised in Angkor by the Khmers.

These forewords to say that SEA boxing styles have nothing to do with chinese martials arts but with hindu's (from kerala: India) since the 1st Century A.D.

Why Muay Lao is less known than Muay thaï, Just 'cause of modern history. Listen carefully:

During the Vietnam War, The "US marines" had their back base to Pattaya, where the young men went out in the city at night to have fun. Thus, it is of this period when comes the tradition of boxing in bars at pattaya. Same story for the US Air Forces, based in Bangkok where from, left bombers for the North Vietnam and Laos.

Back home via the US bases of Japan, the young Americans, Australian, spread the shape Americanized Muay Thaï: ie the kick boxing.

The war over, the "attractions" of the nights of pattaya and Bangkok led the tourists to replace the US soldiers, for boxing and other activities...

That's how, why, Muay Thaï and young thaï females are that famous all over the world than other SEA boxing styles (Kun Khmer, Muay Lao).
