Muay Thai is the world's number 1 ring sport. What has happened in the past to prove this? Even though Thai fighters dominate the K1 circuit, we will go way back to show how well Thai-Boxers did versus the other martial arts. In 1974 a challenge at Lumpinee Stadium, Bangkok resulted in some of Muay Thai's finest moments. Kung-Fu masters were being knocked out before the end of first round. Despite their power and strength, demonstrated by the smashing of bricks with their bare hands, they were unable to compete with the rapid firing combos of Muay Thai. The Thai Fighters were able to find all kinds of openings with the traditional Kung-fu stances. In some of the fights the kung-fu masters were unable to land a single blow. At this 1974 challenge, most of the fights ended in knock outs, demonstrating the affectivness of Muay Thai that so many NHB fighters have come to embrace in their arsenals. The Chinese soon after created Sanshou as a way to teach their fighters a watered down version of Muay Thai, similar to the Japanese demise of Karate, created kick boxing as an answer to Muay Thai.
