History
Muay-Boran (Thai: มวยโบราณ, lit. "ancient boxing") is an umbrella term for the unarmed martial arts of Thailand prior to the introduction of modern equipment and rules in the 1930s. It is thus the direct ancestor of modern Muay Thai. Muay boran is not a single style but acts as an umbrella term for all traditional Siamese (Thai) styles of martial arts, which are Muay Chaiya,Muay Korat,Muay Tasao,Muay Jerng and etc.. These ancient styles have their own unique guards, stance and striking techniques... Whereas Muay Thai is often called the "science of eight limbs", muay boran is said to make use of nawa awut which means "nine weapons", adding headbutts as ninth offensive in addition to the "eight limbs" of hands, legs, elbows and knees used in Muay Thai.

Style
The basic muay boran fighting stances were differ from region to region, for example Muay Korat's stance would normally be a straight legs stance, whereas Muay Chaiya's stance is very much lower. Muay Korat concentrated more in delivered heavy punch called "หมัดเหวี่ยงควาย" (mud weang kwai) meaning "the buffalo swing" and heavy kicks, but originally not much with the use of elbow nor knee, while Muay Chaiya and Muay Jerng use more elbows and knees techniques, also the techniques they used to deliver kicks are very much difference from one another.
