Kun Khmer Boxing

CTN Angkor Arena

Khmer style boxing - Kbach Kun Boran Khmer Pradal Serey or ‘Kun Khmer’ is a very rigorous martial-arts form which uses every single part of the human body; the hands, legs, elbows, knees and feet. It is a popular spectator sport but until recently only Phnom Penh hosted regularly bouts. However, there are now regular fights at the new Angkor Arena in Siem Reap featuring some of Cambodia’s best boxers.
There are fights two times per week, Monday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and Wednesday from 4:00pm to 6:30pm, the entry fee is $15/person.

Kun Khmer History

Kun Khmer/ Pradal Serey (Khmer Kick Boxing) was created in Cambodia from 802 A.D (King Jayavarman II ) to 1309 A.D( King Jayavarman VII) and used by the Cambodian Military when the Khmer Empire dominated and controlled most of what is now Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. It has been passed down from generation to generation.
Historically Pradal Serey/Kun Khmer predates Muay Thai which is a fact well recorded in the bas-relief left behind by early Khmers in the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. However, much of the writing about this ancient Khmer art has either been destroyed or adopted by invading Thai armies and governing institutions during the rise of the Thai empire in the 13th century. Whilst there have been many debates about the origins of kickboxing, it is widely accepted that Pradal Serey was a very important influence in the development of Muay Thai and other Southeast Asian forms of kickboxing.

Pradal Sery/Kun Khmer today

Numerous gyms have opened and a lot of students, both local and foreign, have come to train in Cambodia. There are also schools of Pradal Sery located in Europe, The United States, Australia and other parts of Asia, with the popularity of the sport expanding rapidly.
