Muay Chaiya is a style of traditional Thai boxing in the southern of Thailand, founded about 200 years ago. Unlike the current “sport Muay Thai“, Muay Chaiya allows throwing, grappling, and breaking.
I took these photos from Muay Chaiya demonstration at Nikon Day 2014 event in Bangkok, Thailand.
Just let the photos describe themself.
This is how Muay Chaiya defense.
Muay Chaiya grappling technique.
All photos were took with the wrong speed. I used A-mode which gave me only 1/60 shutter speed from f/1.7. I should use other modes (S or M) to get the higher shutter speed to freeze the moments.
