What is an offensive fighter (Muai Roog)?

An offensive fighter (Muai Roog) is a Muai fighter who masters the basic techniques (Mae Mai) for fist, foot, elbow and knee and uses them with a constant forward movement. The opposite of Muai Roog is called Muai Rab (defensive fighter).

Background

Muai Rug is not a specific fighting style, but an attribute attributed to a fighter.

In earlier times bets were placed on the successful implementation or thwarting of techniques. The outcome of a fight was secondary, because the real fascination was to see whether a fighter could successfully enforce his techniques and tactics or not. It was only through the industrialization of Muay Thai that the focus shifted to points, victories and defeats that were easy for the masses to understand.

For connoisseurs of the matter, for example, the question of whether an offensive fighter would succeed in breaking through the defense of a defensive fighter (Muai Rab) may have been interesting.
