Gabrielle Murg – Executive VP of World Muay Federation
With a rich heritage and the place where few of the Martial Arts were born, SE Asia had brought to the world one of the finest, most exquisite, popular and effective Martial Art.
Muay has existed for more than a thousand years under different names, some of the earliest being recorded in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar as Muay, yet its historic and cultural implications are as important today as they were when it first began.
Even to date, the sport of Muay and the events around it continues to instill much pride and honor in the people in Asia and more popularly and well known by the Thai population under the name of Muaythai.
