OVERVIEW

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

Video Travel Inspiration

 

You can find it carved on the temple walls and now, thanks to CTN, you can see it live in the ancient capital of Cambodia, the Kingdom of Wonder. 

Kun Khmer is Cambodia's national sport. For proof, just see how much kickboxing goes on in the modern capital, Phnom Penh: six television stations broadcast weekly tournaments, with CTN alone broadcasting three days of kickboxing live from its arena on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. That's over 50 live bouts of traditional kickboxing every week, or more than 200 a month.

But, until now you had to be in Phnom Penh if you wanted to see regular Khmer boxing live in person. That was until CTN opened its brand new Angkor Arena in Siem Reap on the road to Angkor Wat. Now you can see some of the biggest names in Kun Khmer take each other on in the square ring for five rounds of one of the toughest stand-up contact sports in the world. 

  • Neak Pradal (boxers) may strike each other with their fists, elbows, knees and feet.
  • They may not strike the groin or the back or top of the head.
  • They may grapple (clinch) each other during a bout.
  • If grappling boxers fall to the mat they must disengage.
  • They may not hold the ring ropes for support.
  • They may not strike an opponent lying on the mat or who has three limbs touching the mat.
  • A bout can end by doctor-stoppage, referee stoppage or knock-out.
  • If a bout lasts five scheduled rounds the winner will be decided by the judges' scores.
  • All bouts will be accompanied by traditional music.
