Muay Chaiya - Muen Muay

In the era of Rama V, Boxing was held infront of his court. Prayavadi Satayaruk, duke of Chaiya, sent Klong Yamnongthong to fight. His chosen technique was Suelakhang [Tiger drags the tail] to throw, strike and break all his opponents until he received the titel of "muen muay" (10,000 soldier*). Since that day, Chaiya has been recognized as the city of boxing and has passed down Muay Chaiya.
