Muay Thai

Narai Kham Samud - King Narai Crosses Ocean


Instead of meeting force with force, which many martial artists do, those who practice internal kungfu, like we do in Shaolin Wahnam, prefer flowing techniques which often exploit the opponents' momentum, and employ minimum force against maximum strength. In this second series, we share some of these techniques which are often used by internal kungfu practitioners.
