So far I did not know much about the customs and superstitions that they have in Muay Thai kickboxing. But other day I came to know about some from www.muaythai.cc. Some very interesting superstitions they have. And you know? They are considered to be the quintessential part of Thai kickboxing.

For example tattoo inscription is a very popular Muay Thai custom. They get it done through temple priests, witchdoctors, medicine men, etc. It is believed that some of these tattoos control good fortune, bad luck, ghosts, and spirits. And some others are known to attract qualities like strength and courage. Wow!

And then there is this practice of rubbing special oils and mixtures or potions on the skin. They supposedly prevent pain and vulnerability.

I also found the custom of Kreung Rang to be very interesting. It is a special amulet that the fighters wear around their necks. Kreung Rang is believed to carry special magical powers. And another thrilling practice is that of wearing pieces of ancestral bones. They are supposed to represent the good spirits of the fighter’s ancestors.

Muay Thai kickboxing’s popularity has now spread much beyond Thailand. Other day I was just reading this site www.muaythai.cc It’s very informative. Anyway, it says how Muay Thai boxing has now become highly popular in other countries apart from its country of origin, Thailand.

Just think of it. It was so many years back that Muay Thai kickboxing started. And its popularity is not only intact, rather it has increased manifold. And, moreover, its appeal has spread to so many other countries spanning South East Asia, USA/Canada, Australia, oooops! It means now it is popular almost in the entire word. Now the countries other than Thailand are not only participating in international Muay Thai events, rather they are holding Muay Thai kickboxing events at their own places. And they are also developing Muay Thai training infrastructure, with lots of Muay Thai training camps, competent trainers, etc.

All this explains the greatness of the art. Not only retaining the popularity, but increasing it manifold. And spreading it almost all over the world. Just like Yoga, isn’t it? It has also successfully retained its popularity, has increased it manifold, and has spread the popularity in countries other than its origin, India.
