THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE & REGISTER OF MUAYTHAI GRANDMASTER & MASTERS
This Web Site has been set-up to honour the past and present Grand Masters and Masters of Muay Thai, and to highlight their achievements who have brought with them the knowledge, skill & rich Cultural Heritage which is Muay Thai from the past to the present day. The information on this Site has been compiled with the assistance of the Department of Physical Education, the Office of the Culture Commission of Thailand, and the Kru muaythai Executive Committee from the Headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Site has also been set-up for the benefit of all Muay Thai practitioners throughout the World, so that everyone will at last now know who are the Authentic Grandmaster & Masters of Muay Thai, or those who are not. You will also be able to check out your own Instructors position in relationship to them. Such as who their teacher was and who was their teachers teacher. Or whether your Instructor is officially recognised by them or not. So this will enable you to personally evaluate your own position in this.
We have included a comprehensive List of the Grandmasters, from the earliest known ones, upto the present day. This information will be updated whenever anyone new is Granted this esteemed Title. Each Grandmaster or Master has been allocated their own section on the Web Site, which includes documentary evidence or relevant copy and photos whenever it has been possible. Such as - their best or most favourite techniques, also the advice which they would give to some one starting up training in Muay Thai today!
There is a special section on the Site which covers the special practices used by the Grandmasters & Masters of Muay Thai. Such as the very little known magical rituals and the use of amulets, special herbs & potions to gain protection. We also discuss the relevance of the special ritual dance - the Ram Muay and accompanying Traditional music with regards to their fighters pre-fight mental preparations. Some of the other topics which we discuss in this section are - the Wai Kru Ceremony and the Wai Kru day and its relevance. We also discuss the Kru muaythai Curriculum which is used by Instructors throughout the World, and its relevance for Grading upto Master Level.
If we have missed-out anyone who should be on this List we are very sorry and would be grateful tohear about them. The information should be submitted for evaluation by the Kru MuayThai Executive Committee, to:

officially with National Culture Commission, Ministry of Culture,
Kingdom of Thailand to promote the heritage of its ancient martial arts
popularly known as Muay Boran and Muaythai.
The new committee had its 1st meeting on 14th September 2013 @ 10.00
a.m. after the last AGM held in June 2013at Luktupfah Muaythai Camp
& Academy, Onnut, Bangkok. The newly elected committee headed by
Asst. Senior Grand Master Chinawut Sirisompan (GM Woody) who was again

The meeting was started with the opening address by the chairman to
greet and welcome all attendees. The meeting continued with the
discussion of formalizing and compilation of Muay Boran syllabus and its
competition rules and regulations for Semi Contact (Amateur) and Full
Contact (Professional) competitions.
In order to promote Muay Boran internationally, the
committee unanimously agrees to accept and allowed World Muay Boran
Federation (W.M.B.F.) to be an associate member under its wing. This
will encourage clubs, gyms and associations which practices martial
arts, muaythai and muay boran throughout the world to join the
federation and enjoy the benefit of proper teaching of Muay Boran
curriculum / Khan grading provided by K.M.A. which eventually is
beneficial to Thailand to disseminate its culture globally.
The committee also continues to discuss on the present setback of
existing members not paying their fees promptly and some Kru have
misused their position to create their own certification.
The committee agrees to inform concerned members and should they
ignore, their names will be delisted as member of the association and
their membership and Khan grade revoked. It is also agrees that should
any organization use the logo or name of the association with approval,
legal action will be proceeded against them.
All members stop for lunch and later continue to proceed to the gym
to observe the workshop created with 2 boxers wearing proper Muay Boran
attires doing the demostation fight for the members to brainstorm and
feedback on the Muay Boran rules and regulations proposed for both the
