Pra Jiad Ranking System

Did You know?
Some western gyms, not in Thailand, use the Pra Jiad as a ranking system to show aptitude in Muay Thai. This practice is similar to belt systems found in Karate, Jiu Jitsu, or Judo. However, this practice is not traditional to Thailand in any way. No gyms in Thailand utilize this system.
In fact, the Pra Jiad color ranking system looks eerily close to that of Karate dojos. Both start out at White and progress through yellow, orange, green, and blue. Then Muay Thai Pra Jiad ranking system will continue with purple, red, brown, and finish with black. Even Muay Thai instructors can have Pra Jiad rankings systems starting at black and white, then red and black, then black and silver, and finally, black and gold.
The Pra Jiad ranking system has no relation to traditional Muay Thai. Many western Muay Thai gyms adopted this system so that new practitioners could quickly understand because so many athletes would have already been used to a belt ranking system from Jiu-Jitsu or Karate. Additionally, some claim to use a colored ranking system as it is an easy way to keep clients interested.

The Pra Jiad finds its ancient roots in warriors looking to keep a bond to their home family. It would be blessed by Buddhist monks for good luck. These traditions with the Pra Jiad and Nak Mauy still persist to this day.
