Muay Thai versus Kung Fu Part 5: Lamsongkram
by Fatso King
From the Kung Fu versus Muay Thai Challenge of 2009 at 75kg Lamsongkram Chuwattana fights Zhang Kai Yin.
A few months back a challenge was rendered allegedly from a team of Thailand’s Muay Thai camps to of all places the Shaolin Temple of Foshan, Guangdong province in China. Excerpts from the story quoted the five famous Thaiboxers as saying that they wanted to “wipe out the Shaolin Temple”. Instead however a team of Sanda fighters picked up the challenge and I offered my rant about it.
The rules of this bout and the entire event disallowed knee strikes to the head but allowed full Sanda rules.
Now you can see the fight between Lamsongkram and Zhang Kai Yin and see if the rules had anything at all to do with the fight’s outcome.
