RUESEE LUEM YAN or the Unreal Fists. What are the unreal fists, you might want to know. This technical move can be done by either using the right or the left hand, thus benefitting both the left-handed and the right-handed boxing fighters. For example, if you are left-handed, you may opt to deliver a punch with your left fist. But the trick of this move is, before you deliver a punch, you would first have to push out with your right arm to mislead the opponent, making him think that you are going to blow with your right fist.
As the right fist is held in the act of being thrown, the opponent gets the wrong perception that he will be hit from your right. Impulsively, he will then sway his body to the right side in order to avoid the potential attack. As he does this, however, you must stop the action of your right arm and then throw the unexpected left punch to his right jaw, which is now unguarded.
This “unreal fists” method can also be used to target other parts of the body apart from the head area, such as the neck, the ribs, or the abdomen.
You see, Thai boxing is not only just kicking other people’s ass, but also using your brain a lot in order to defeat someone in a fair fight.
