About Por Kru Day.
May 5th: Por Kru Day
The most important day in the Sitsiam Camp/Buddhai Swan calendar.
The day will begin at 10am when all students will come to pay their respects to our Father Teacher “Por Kru” Arjarn Samai Mesamarn (1914-1998).
Por Kru dedicated his life to preserving the Thai Martial Arts especially the art of Krabi krabong (Thai Weapons).
Establishing the Buddhai Swan Swordmanship School in 1946 with the purpose of preserving the study of Krabi krabong.
In 1957 the school was officially recognised when His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand presented Por Kru with the standard of Buddhai Swan to carry the name forward for future generations.
Since that time until his passing Por Kru worked tirelessly to promote the vanishing art of Krabi krabong and today Buddhai Swan is famous around the world for its amazing re-enactments and demonstrations of this fascinating fighting style.
We would like to extend our invitation to everyone who practices the Thai Martial Arts, be it the sport of Muay Thai or the more traditional Thai Martial Arts like Muay Boran and Krabi krabong.
The day is very powerful and moving and something that we at the Sitsiam Camp/Buddhai Swan wish to share with everyone involved in the Thai Martial Arts.
Guest Teachers and old Students are welcome to participate in the “Wai Kru” (Respect to Teachers) ceremony to show respect to Por Kru founder of Buddhai Swan sword fighting Institute Thailand.
Wai Kru begins at 10am followed by demonstrations of the Thai Martial Arts by the Sitsiam Camp/Buddhai Swan Teachers and Students. Map <<
