Wai Kru Muay Thai 2017

During the month of March, hundreds of Muay Thai boxers from around the world return to the ancient capital of Ayutthaya to pay respect to their teachers, and/or pay homage to the legendary Muay Thai folk hero Nai Khanom Tom.

The annual World Wai Kru Muay Thai Ceremony celebrates the artistry of Thailand’s world-famous martial art, and traditionally this annual gathering was meant to honour the teachers as well as consecrate a blessing on the fighters themselves – a shield against nervousness and fear – and to showcase the origin of individual boxers, as different camps had their own distinct styles.

During the modern version of this festival, held in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya historic park, visitors can expect to see Muay Thai demonstrations and tournaments, as well as exhibitions of Thai arts, handicrafts, ancient weapons and more.
