Seminars have become the norm here in the Houston MMA scene, but the majority of those are usually either BJJ or MMA based seminars. It’s not that often that we get a Muay Thai seminar here in town, so when the guys over at Gracie Barra North Houston held one, it was a treat for Muay Thai fans and those interested in learning the sport.
The seminar took place at Gracie Barra The Woodlands and was geared towards new comers to the sport. It provided a great foundation and introduction to the basics of the “art of 8 limbs”, including instructional sessions by Gerardo Abadie,Todd Moore, and Kru Ali. There was also a demonstration of the Wai Khru as well as a great performance of the Muay Boran by Matt Wald and Rey Aninzo.
The seminar was a great learning tool for novice fans and fighters of the sport. Hopefully we’ll see more of these in the future here in Houston.
Here is a video of the Muay Boran.
Enjoy the pics!
