Muay Thai techniques of using fists, feet, knees, and elbows efficiently in the attack and defense. The skills in Muay Thai are acquired by practice and use of fists, feet, knees, and elbows harmoniously. The techniques used in teaching Muay Thai vary from teacher to teacher, depending on the style each teacher can adapt. A style invented by a teacher will be given a name according to the action. When time goes by, the styles have considerably increased. They are therefore grouped and rhymed for the students to memorize.
In the past, Muay Thai boxers did not put on gloves. They fought with bare hands or hands wrapped with cotton yarn. The fighters could use their hands to throw, break or twist the opponents. They made use of a wide range of fighting techniques rather than strength. There emerged a lot of fighting styles accordingly. Later, the boxers are required to put on gloves like the international-style fighters and numerous rules and regulations have been issued to protect the fighters from any dangers and to facilitate the scoring system. Certain fighting styles are banned in the competition because they are regarded as a foul whereas boxers are unable to use certain skillful styles due to the guards or protectors put on their bodies. These styles were finally forgotten.
Muay Thai techniques are grouped differently according to the teachers. In many Muay Thai manuals, the techniques are obviously classified according to the features. The attack and counterattack is called Khon Muay or Muay Thai strategy. The use of fists, feet, knees, and elbows is called Cherng Muay, Mae Mai and Look Mai, Mai Khru and Mai Kred, or simply Muay Thai maneuvers. Mai Khru is the main technique that all students must learn. When it is acquired, it can be split into numerous Mai Kred or techniques.
Mae Mai Muay Thai means the major fighting styles regarded as basic maneuvers in Muay Thai fighting. The students have to learn and put them into practice before other trivial techniques or Look Mai will be taught. Mai Muay Thai is divided into 15 styles as follows:
1. Salab Fan Pla (Cross-switch movement)

"So the training was physically challenging, but not by any means brutal. There was no shin-kicking of steel pipes or picking up steaming cauldrons with ones for arms wait, thats Kung Fu. Anyway, the training was intense but not particularly high-impact. There seems to be an implicit understanding that training, like an actual bout of Thai boxing, is an endurance game. In other words, while being able to go balls-out is valuable, one must also learn to pace oneself."
