Pradal Serey – Cambodian Martial Arts Style
Pradal Serey is a Cambodian martial arts similar to Muay Thai and Kickboxing. Pradal Serey is well known for its use of elbow strikes in order to win a fight. Unlike the Cambodian martial arts of Bokator, Pradal Serey students do not train with martial arts weapons. Pradal Serey is also known as Kun Khmer.
During the 1970s, Cambodia was in severe turmoil and millions of people were massacred due to the rise of the Khmer Rouge. Beyond the terrible impact on the entire Cambodian population, this turmoil also almost eliminated Pradal Serey as a martial arts due to the death of so many practitioners. Nevertheless, after the fall of the Khmer Rouge in 1979, Pradal Serey has been making a comeback in Cambodia and has been slowly spreading to other countries.
