Traditional 5-Round Muay Thai vs. 3-Round Entertainment Muay Thai

Let’s explore the differences between these two at the renowned Rajadamnern Stadium, The home of Muaythai in Bangkok.


Muay Thai, the national sport of Thailand, has evolved over time, giving rise to two distinct formats – the traditional 5 round format and the more modern 3 round entertainment style. 


First, let’s talk about the 5-round traditional Muay Thai. Known for its deep-rooted history and cultural significance, these matches are a true test of skill, endurance, and strategy. At Rajadamnern Stadium, the traditional 5-round Muay Thai events take place on select days of the week, such as:

New Power on Wednesdays
Petchyindee on Thursdays
Kiatpetch on Sundays

These fights adhere to the classic Muay Thai format, with 5 rounds of 3 minutes each and a 2-minute break in between. This allows fighters to showcase their technical mastery, strategic prowess, and endurance over a longer duration. The emphasis is on the artistry and tradition of the sport, making it a must-see for Muay Thai enthusiasts includes the ceremonial Wai Kru dance, honoring teachers and the sport’s heritage. It’s a must-see for those wanting to experience the authentic spirit of Muay Thai.

However, it’s important to note that these 5-round events are also heavily influenced by gambling culture in Thailand. Spectators often engage in betting on the outcomes of the matches, adding an extra layer of excitement and risk to the proceedings.


On the other hand, Rajadamnern also hosts the more fast-paced, action-packed 3-round entertainment Muay Thai events on:
