Brooks C. Miller taught a series of techniques that Buakaw does – any student of Suriya Sak is taught to watch and imitate Buakaw for his beautiful technique, so Brooks is doing right by Master K here.

Buakaw is in an interesting place politically right now, and he still holds a special place in the world of Muay Thai, perhaps especially in the west.  I think that for me he represents a kind of purity of technique, despite the fact that many of his fights aren’t actually Muay Thai, but K-1.  Maybe even it’s the possibilities hidden behind those limitations that make him so intriguing for me – that he’s so dominant in the sport and so beautiful in his technique, God help his opponents if he were allowed to use his elbows.  That kind of thing.

It’s broken up into about 2 minute parts to show individual techniques. The sound isn’t always clear when Brooks is facing away from the camera, but his technique is so clean and beautiful in the break down of each technique that you can still really learn it.  Really nice!

Muay ThaiTechnique

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
