The 10th World Wai Kru Muay Thai Ceremony

For the Muay Thai training, the first thing for all boxers to do is to perform the “Wai Kru” or respect paying ceremony which has long been observed until this day. The Wai Kru ceremony is to show the boxers’ regard and gratitude for their parents, the sacred objects, and the masters who have taught them, which brings auspiciousness to the boxers and makes their minds calm and mindful.

As for Muay Thai dance, it is to convey the specific characteristics of a Muay Thai master or camp. Muay Thai boxers who perform the same style of Wai Kru and Muay Thai dance will usually not fight each other since they understand that they have the same master. Moreover, the dance serves as a way to observe the adversary’s tactic, and warm up the boxers to relax from stress in body and mind and be ready for a fight or competition.

The ancient capital of Ayutthaya is home to the annual World Wai Kru Muay Thai Ceremony and Miracle Muay Thai Festival. For individuals trained in the ancient Thai art of boxing or ‘Muay Thai’, the annual Wai Kru Muay Thai Ceremony held during the annual Thai Martial Arts Festival is the most important date on their calendar. Muay Thai boxers from around the world return to Ayutthaya to pay respect to their teachers, and to pay homage to the legendary Muay Thai folk hero, Nai Khanom Tom.

Each year,Thai boxer from around the world will participate in the World Wai Kur Muay Thai Ceremony and Miracle Muay Thai Festival and show their appreciation for the beautiful art of Muay Thai at Ayutthaya World Heritage Site.  There will also have many activities.
