Thai Kick Boxing, or Muay Thai, is the national sport of Thailand. The ultimate in a pure combat martial art. Everything is oriented towards the lightning attack of fists and feet. In five 3-minute rounds, opponents go through a full-contact fight for the entertainment of millions.

Part of the reason why Kick Boxing is so deadly is due to the number of competitors. Training can start as early as the child can walk and virtually every able-bodied Thai boy practices kick boxing and dreams of becoming a national champ. It's not limited to men either; there are plenty of tournaments for female kick boxers as well.

The main difference between Eastern Kick Boxing and Western-style championship boxing is the ritual. Each Kick Boxer must perform the Ram Muay, or ritual dance, before each fight.

One of the major problems with Thai Boxing, and the reason why many fighters leave the sport, is the gangster influence. Boxers who refuse to "take a fall" may find their family threatened, their bouts cancelled, or they may even end up being permanently disqualified for

"cheating" or violating the rules. In severe cases, the boxer may go to jail for trumped up "crimes," or may be permanently disabled. SPECIAL NOTE: Rolling height and weight for Thai Kick Boxer characters is special. The real martial art champions are in the lowest weight classes. For height, roll 1D8 for the number of inches to be added to four feet, ten inches. Weight is determined by rolling 4D6, multiplying the result by ten, and adding it to 80 pounds. So, rolls of 7 and 10 would result in a character 5ft, 5in and 90 lbs. Costume: In the ring, one wears light boxing gloves, trunks, and foot wrappings. Other, optional, items include the Kruang Rang, a religious artifact (usually Buddhist) tied around the upper arm with a bright cloth wrapping, and the Monkon, a brightly colored headband that identifies the fighter's teacher. Stance: Like a boxing stance, except the weight is shifted from leg to leg in preparation for kicking.

SPECIAL KATAS:

Lightning Form ■ This is the style most often used in competition. It allows all the normal attacks per melee round to be delivered in the first attack. In other words, if the character has five attacks per melee, then all five strikes can be made at one time. It must be done as the first attack in a melee round and the character must have the initiative. The problem is that after the attack the character cannot Dodge and has no bonuses to Parry for the rest of that Melee Round.

Why Study THAI KICK BOXING?

Without exception, this is the world's deadliest martial art. Thai boxers have dominated the world's martial art contests for years, forcing most other forms to adopt their styles and techniques. The only weakness comes from the lack of training in the "internal" arts.

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book. No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
