Muay Chaiya

Muay Chaiya is a style of traditional Thai boxing in the southern of Thailand, founded about 200 years ago. Unlike the current “sport Muay Thai“, Muay Chaiya allows throwing, grappling, and breaking.

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