Wai khru ram muay is a ritual performed by participants before fighting in muay Thai competitions. The wai is a traditional Thai greeting with the palms together as a sign of respect. Khru is the Thai form of the Sanskrit word guru meaning 'teacher'. Ram is the Thai word for dancing in classical style, and muay means 'boxing'. The full term can therefore be translated as “war-dance saluting the teacher”... lots of non Thai kick boxers prefer to skip it, but I love it. I exist in the space where “art” meets “martial”.
