MuayThai Korat is one of the 4 soldier styles of Thailand that was developed by PHRA HEMSAMAHAN.

Phra Hemsamahan grew up in a warrior family and learnt to fight Chai Yuth at an early age in the old Capital Ayyuthaya under Grand Master Thon (Cha-ngad Chaneng chok’s) the first Great Muan - King Champions.

Fighting in King Naresuan`s Army, he rose through the ranks and was appointed 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 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 Great Kings Champion (Chang Chuerng 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 deadly form of MuayThai Close Combat still used today by the Thai Kings own Royal Bodyguard.
