Is The Kick Tony Jaa Throws in Ong Bak a Real Muay Thai Technique?
We often see fight scenes in movies where guys are able to land incredible techniques flawlessly on their opponents. When it comes to Muay Thai movies and fight scenes, one of the most popular ones of all time comes from Ong Bak where Tony Jaa decides to demolish a number of bigger, stronger opponents using his Muay Thai technique…
… but are the techniques he uses actually applicable to a real Muay Thai fight? This is the question that Peter Bellanova asked in this weeks Muay Thai Monday:
