BURMESE BOXING (video - VHS, NTSC/U.S. standard)
The Last Gladiators of Asia
by Zoran Rebac
Burmese boxing is one of the most savage, brutally effective fighting arts ever developed. It sprang from the same roots as the art of Muay Thai, but unlike its Thai counterpart, it has not been "civilized." Burmese boxing includes all the bone-breaking punches, elbows, knees and kicks that characterize Thai boxing; however, it also incorporates devastating head butts, throws, spinning strikes and even dramatic vaulting attacks in which the practitioner literally climbs up his opponent's body to deliver a knockout blow. This amazing video takes you inside the forbidden world of Burmese boxing and features rare footage of boxing demonstrations by Burmese masters, instruction in its basic fighting techniques and counters, and the rules of modern Burmese boxing. It also includes highlights of actual Burmese boxing matches that feature the kind of hard-hitting, nonstop action that makes modern no-holds-barred competitions seem tame by comparison. For information purposes only. Color, approx. 50 min.
