History
Pradal Serey is an unarmed martial art from Cambodia. In Pradal-Serey the word pradal means fighting or boxing and serey means free. Kun Pradal-Serey is considered one of Cambodia's national sports. Kun Pradal-Serey is a kickboxing form descended directly from early forms of khmer fighting techniques that went by the name Yuthakun Khom. Its moves have been slightly altered to comply with the modern rules.
Kun Pradal-Serey is most well known for its kicking technique, which generates power from hip rotation rather than snapping the leg, Kun Pradal-Serey consists of four types of strikes: punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes.

Style
At an ASEAN meeting in 1995 regarding the upcoming King's Cup Muay Thai competition, Cambodia wanted to rename Muay Thai as "Sovannaphum boxing" or "SEA Boxing", which represented Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. Sovannaphum means "golden land" in Pradal-Serey and is written as Suwannabhumi in Thai. The name refers to mainland Southeast Asia in the Indian language of Pali.
Thailand would not compromise, stating that each Southeast Asian country has its own boxing style and that Thailand was responsible for making its kickboxing an international sport.
