Welcome to the art of Muay Thai blog. Here at our weblog you will get to see and read all kinds of articles that are all related to Thailand’s great Martial Art or Muay Thai. If you have been with us for a while, this is about time that we will talk about another Muay Thai move. Today I’m digging up another Ancient Muay Thai move for you to read and learn. Ancient Muay Thai or Muay Thai Boran is the original Martial Art not like modern Thai boxing that is just a fighting sport. Then you wonder what the difference is. Every Martial Art was created for self-defense and to stop the enemy by all mean, which mean sometimes you will have to kill or seriously injure the rival. But in sport you cannot do that. That is why some of the Ancient boxing techniques you don’t get to see in the modern boxing because they are too life-risky to be used.
However, that doesn’t mean knowing the moves are not important. You can always learn and adapt the move in your real life. At least, if you know how to do some of the serious fighting techniques, you can live your life more secure in the world these days.
Anyway let’s get started! The “Dan Poopa” is just another fancy Thai name for another move that requires you to throw the knee kick and a punch at the same time. This combination of knee and punch attacking technique is used for defense or as a countermove. The boxer who wants to perform this has to be able to maintain good balance. He must be at about an arm’s length away from the opponent before getting ready to execute the attack. First, the body is made to lean towards and a bit to the left while raising the right knee up. The perfect target for this movement is your opponent’s right rib. The foot is slightly bent towards the back to the left side while making a punch blow with your right fist to impact your opponent’s chin.
To deal with the Attack: Use your left arm to deflect the boxer’s right fist and jump back slightly at the same time.
To deal with the Defense: As the boxer uses his left leg for support during the delivery of this Ancient Muay Thai technique, you must kick this left leg of his with your right foot to throw him off balance. Follow this up immediately with another attacking move. IF the boxer is left-handed, alternate the side of your kicking move by using your left foot instead of the right.
Thank you for being with MuayThaiArt today. Come back for more of Ancient Thai Boxing lesson next month because we still have a few more Cherng Kao or Knee moves left before we move on to the next Muay Thai weapon moves. See you next time.
Welcome to our Muay Thai lesson. Today’s Muay Thai Boran move is another one of Muay Thai Cherng Kao or knee kicks. I have no idea which number we are at right now. But anyway, just so you know that we will be continuing until the very last Muay Thai weapon techniques. So don’t go anywhere, just come back and check out each lesson every month.
Today’s lesson is called “Poopa Satan” in Thai. The word that will best describe the move is the upper knee kicks. Let’s first talk about what the move is for and how to do it then I’ll tell you how to use this ancient Thai boxing technique in the real situation.
Poopa Satan or the upper knees is an attacking action, executed in a clinch position that can be highly injurious to your opponent. For beginners, this may initially be difficult to do as proper balance should be maintained as the attacking movement is made. The boxer will have to thrust his right knee upwards while pushing the opponent’s head down. Then follow this up with an upward thrust of the left knee this time, targeting the opponent’s midsection or abdomen. The grip to the head must be tight and secure and both hands must be used to hold your opponent’s neck firmly.
To deal with the Attack: At a close range, the upper knee technique can be extremely dangerous. Thus, you must always protect your chest and abdominal area from being vulnerable away from your opponent’s knee kicks with your forearms and elbows on guarding positions.
To deal with the Defense: Lean your body backwards and try to create a greater distance between you and your opponent. Then deliver a strong straight punch blow directed at the opponent’s chin.
If you want to try out any Muay Thai boran’s moves, don’t forget to do in under supervision of your master of Muay Thai so that he can help you correct any mistake that may occur. Even though some of these moves are prohibited in modern Muay Thai sport, knowing the art and practicing some of the crucial moves can be very useful at least for self defense in real life.

But remember if you want to try performing these ancient Muay Thai moves, don’t forget to do it under supervision of your Muay thai master so that he can correct any mistakes because as you know if you leave them like that, they will become habits and you know that old habits die hard.

The Thai name of this move is “Hak Kor Erawan”. The move is one of those holding the neck of your opponent and then throw the knee kicks. There are many of those that I have written here already but each of them is different. Don’t forget to check them all out.
This is quite similar to a flying knee kick. It is executed with a leap in order to attain the needed height to be able to impact the target. As you jump, use both hands to grasp your opponent’s neck and quickly try to bend his head down. As you do this, throw your knees forcefully at the opponent’s chin or chest which are the main targets of attack.
To deal with the Attack: The boxer finds the opportunity to use this Muay thai boran move when you are cornered or caught against the ropes. To minimize the damge, keep your elbows close to your chest to protect against the knee blows. You can also use your elbows to hit the boxer’s thighs as they come up.
To deal with the Defense: Hold you head up and make a counterattack by pushing or kneeing the crossed knees up to the boxer’s midsection, or use either hand to hit the boxer’s chin. Ensure that you do this move with full force to make the boxer fall back down.

Welcome to our Muay Thai Boran lesson! We have been giving Ancient Thai boxing move lesson for years and right now we are at the Knee move or Cherng Kao. So check out our previous articles if you like. We will just continue until the last Muay Thai weapon and the attacking techniques using the weapon which is the thrusting kick.
Remember if you want to try the move, you may want to do it with your Muay Thai trainer who can help correct your move and you can just keep perfecting it. Today is another Muay Thai knee move called “Yud Yotha”. The move is one of the moves that require you to throw the knees and elbows at the same time. If you’ve been with us lately, there are quite a few moves like this already. But all of them are slightly different from each other. So let’s see how this one will differ from the knee kicks in the past Ancient Muay thai articles. Ok, first I will tell you how to do the move and then later will be how to use the move under real fighting situations. Here we go.
The technique is used for attack, defense and escape. You will need a lot of practice and repeat to perfect and master it since it requires you to use the arm and leg of the same side of the body and to do so you need a perfect balance. On the other hand, it will be very effective in that your opponent will have a hard time defending himself against your elbow and knee blows if he cannot react quickly to your attack. If you want to perform the move, first throw a swinging left knee to the right rib of your opponent and then use the left elbow to strike into your opponent’s chin.
To deal with the Attack: The opponent can ward off the boxer’s left knee by using his right elbow to guard the right side of his body. However, he must be able to effectively and skillfully use his left arm to defend against the oncoming left elbow hit of the boxer at the right side of his head.
To deal with the Defense: Use your left foot to deliver a kick to the boxer’s abdominal area to make him lose his footing and balance and immediately follow up with another movement.

Hi and welcome back to our Muay Thai Boran’s lesson! Actually it’s not a lesson, because I’m not a teacher or muay thai expert. But I’m only a thai boxing fan who read and watch Muay Thai a lot. The ancient muaythai moves I have been talking about are from online articles and books. I read and memorize them and think they are quite useful so I want to pass them on to you. If you are an expert, you can also correct me if I’m wrong at some point. Since some of the moves are not really used in Muay thai ring these days, but knowing the moves help you increase your boxing skills. And here goes the move of today.
The move is called Ngoo Lai Tookkae (snake chasing salamander, yup that’s the literally meaning of the name, don’t ask me why). However, the English name is the alternating knees kicks. You might not get the picture now. But you will because I’ll break it down for you.
This is a very rapid move for attacking. It is the most effectively used when your opponent starts to lose his balance or is in a unsteady position. First, you as a boxer will hit your opponent’s left rib with a diagonal left knee kick (Kao Chiyang, check out our latest Muay Thai Boxing Video lesson from last month, we got a video on how to perform a diagonal knee kick and some instructions). Next, throw a straight right knee kick into your opponent’s midsection or solar plexus. Then, finish it off with another left knee kick into the central part of the torso.
To deal with the Attack: Avoid being immobile when your opponent is using this move against you. To handle the situation, you can sway your body and raise your right elbow to cover your chest area instead. And to protect your left rib, you will have to twist your torso to the right and use your left elbow to guard it.
To deal with the Defense: Use your left leg to kick the opponent’s abdomen to make him loose his footing. Immediately, follow it up with another technique to prevent another flood of alternating knees.
Alright, that’s it for today lesson. Check us out next month for more of this or you can also see our others articles throughout the month. See you next time!
