Traditionally, girl were banned from entering the Muay Thai boxing ring and there was no girl’s boxing in Thailand. This fact originates from long-held superstitions that a female presence may destroy a Muay Thai boxer’s skill, making him vulnerable to injuries. The belief is that female boxers (Nak Muay Ying) will jinx any Muay Thai ring they fight in. At Sitkrumat Thai Boxing Camp we encourage men, women and children to train alongside one another. Women’s boxing competitions now take place in Kuala Lumpur. Women who train at Sitkrumat Thai Boxing Camp can compete in a women’s boxing match if that is their aim. Under no circumstances are men and women allowed to compete against one another.
