MuayThai Korat is one of the original 4 soldier styles of Thailand, it was developed by PHRA HEMSAMAHAN using old Isuan jungle fighting.

Phra Hemsamahan grew up in a warrior family learning to fight Chai Yuth at an early age in the old Capital Ayyuthaya under Grand Master Thon, known by his (Cha-ngad Chang chok’s) or Great Muan - King Champions he studied and fought many battles in all of the Siamese battles.

Fighting in King Naresuan`s Army, he rose through the ranks and was eventually appointed the First Governor of the city of Na Korat Rachasima to defend the Eastern border with Khymer (Modern day Cambodia)

Mixing Chai Yuth (The Winning Strategy of King Naresuan) with the native fighting system of the Isuan people, Phra Hemsamahan created a style that was taught to the Royal Elephant Guardians (The Jakulangkubat) to protect the Royal elephant enclosures.

It was first displayed in front of King Mongkut (1804-1868) by Deng Thaiprasert whom after a successful fight was given the honour of

The Kings Champion (Cha-ngad Chang Chok)




With its origins in the Royal Courts of King Chukalongkorn (1853-1910) Navarach was developed from MuayThai Korat and the 3 other Soldier arts of MuayThai. Navarach is a the most deadly form of MuayThai Close Combat and still used today by the Thai Kings own Royal Bodyguard.
