DAAB (sword) is traditional armed combat with arm-long objects as improvised weapons and the name-giving Thai-swords.
Thai-swords were originally simple rice flails (Gab) or weed scythes (Gab Glie). Such tools were already used 4000 years ago against Chinese invaders and over the course of centuries developed into fighting swords.
Typical for Thai sword fighting is using the center-near pivot that enables a high rotation speed and complex movement patterns and the use of the grip for blunt strikes.
Authentic Thai sword fighting is always trained with heavy training weapons made from wood or steel, but never with Rattan oder Bamboo.
The Pahuyuth School in Berlin is the only place in the world where the famous DAAB NARESUAN (also known as “Sword of Ayutthaya”) is taught.
DAAB NARESUAN is a special, single-handed sword style, developed and secretively passed on by a paramilitary special force, that was founded during the Reign of King Naresuan (1590-1605 A.D.).
