Flying fists, gravity defying kicks and superhuman acts of speed make Muay Thai, or Thai boxing, an exciting element of Thai culture. Visitors can now learn about the origins of the martial art and see exciting displays in nightly shows that will take place at ASIATIQUE The Riverfront, Bangkok's new cultural hub starting January 15, 2014.
Through a combination of fascinating history and amazing athleticism, Muay Thai Live- The Legend Lives explores the roots of Thailand's ancient martial art and brings to life over 300 years of history. Visitors will be entertained with a dazzling combination of hyper-real Muay Thai fights, breathtaking stunts and sweeping drama that will both educate and enthrall.
The stage for the sporting display offers state-of-the-art light and sound technology to ensure that audiences enjoy an immersive Muay Thai experience that really packs a punch.
Muay Thai Live - The Legend Lives acts as a showcase for Thai boxing as a national art and a treasure of the kingdom's heritage. Muay Thai is becoming a trend in India with many young people practicing the martial art as a more recreational form of personal fitness as compared to straightforward gym routines.
Show director Ekachai Uekrongtham, said, "Muay Thai is not only Thailand's national sport, but also a fiercely beautiful, no-nonsense art that combines power, speed and sublime beauty."
When creating and directing Muay Thai Live - The Legend Lives, Ekachai wanted to make it as thrilling, authentic and educational as possible- he and the fighters have worked hard to ensure that all the combat is genuine, and the spectacular kicks and jabs are based on real boxing moves with no tricks.
"Another aim was to ensure that the show is educational for audiences of any age, sex and origin. We want everyone to understand the historical and cultural elements of Muay Thai, whether they are young or old, Thai or foreign, or whether they know a lot about Muay Thai or nothing at all," Uekrongtham added.
