Muay Thai Boxing Legends - Prince Narusuan

Posted by on Sunday, October 21, 2012 Under: Photography

Prince Narusuan was a key figure in the development of the martial arts in Thailand (formerly Siam). In c. 1585, Narusuan succeeded in reorganizing a defeated Thai army. He made sure his men all learned martial arts leading to successful campaigns against the Burmese soldiers who had occupied the country since 1568.

Then, in a dramatic final showdown, he faced the leader of the Burmese army in open battle, both on the backs of war elephants. After a violent fight, Narusuan’s martial arts skills won through and he cut his opponent in half, from his shoulder to his waste. After this, the Burmese army left, liberating the Thai people and making Prince Narusuan a martial arts legend.
