Is Muay Thai related to Buddihsm?
#1
I have been to Bangkok twice and I have met some people who are connected to Muay Thai fighters. From a casual conversation, I have learned that Muay Thai is a self defense art that is not supposed to be used in fighting much more in harming an opponent. You only use Muay Thai when you have no other means of defending yourself. The tenor of the conversation points to their religion. Thailand is predominantly Buddhist and I find Thais a kind of gentle people, kind and accommodating. I was just timid to ask if Muay Thai is directly connected to Buddhism.

I've never heard of it, and I don't know anyone who can confirm that kind of relationship between this martial art and this religion. But it's a point that has relevance considering the cultural aspect.

Did you find any article or study on this?
