Muay Chaiya is a style of traditional Thai boxing in southern Thailand, founded about 200 years ago. Unlike the current “sport Muay Thai“, Muay Chaiya allows throwing, grappling, and breaking.
I took these photos from the Muay Chaiya demonstration at Nikon Day 2014 event in Bangkok, Thailand.
Just let the photos describe themself.

Muay Chaiya grappling technique.
All photos were taken at the wrong speed. I used A-mode which gave me only a 1/60 shutter speed from f/1.7. I should use other modes (S or M) to get a higher shutter speed to freeze the moments.
