THE WAI KHRU
The art of Muaythai from past to present has a tradition that every fighter must perform the Wai Khru before every competition.
Wai Khru is performed as a means of paying respect to the chairperson of the competition or in the past as a way to pay homage to the King who would normally be a spectator on almost every occasion. It also symbolizes the gratefulness of the fighter towards his mentor who had trained him and as a means of concentrating himself mentally for the competition.
