Excellent info Andrew. Muay Boran is a combination of the older muay thai styles (muay chaiya, muay korat, muay lopburi, muay ta sao). It was developed by the Thai Government Department of Physical Education in order to keep these older styles alive. Krabi Krabong (sword & stick) is the weapons based system of the Thai and was the beginning of the Thai martial arts. Lerdrit is the military form of muay thai. It contains joint locks, breaks and throws. It is similar to muay koshasan (elephant boxing style) aka muay chang tumlai roang (smashing elephant boxing style). In these muay arts, the arms are used similar to an elephants trunk to break and smash joints and limbs. It resembles movements in aikido.

Just the other day someone walked up to my desk, looked at my computer screen and said: "You and that wikipedia." I guess that is a testament to my love of the wiki.

Its funny you guys started talking about wikipedia. I have a student that I started calling wiki because he remembers every thing you tell him about muay thai. He is a walking encyclopedia.
