Muay Lopburi (Muay from the town of Lop Buri) is a Muay Boran style that was invented in the 20th century AD and essentially refers to the Rammakian Saga.

Muay Lopburi became known for the film “Ong Bak” and is strongly oriented towards the Rammakian Saga in naming its techniques. The Rammakiern is a stage play that was again translated into the Thai language under the reign of King Rama II (1809-1824) and widely distributed. As a result, many of Muay Lopburi’s so-called “ancient techniques” can not be older than 200 years. Apart from the show-fighting-oriented techniques, Muay Lopburi is a regular Muay Thai.

Like Krabi Krabong, Muay Lopburi has never been deployed in a warlike conflict.
