Bokator, or more formally, Labokatao ល្បុក្កតោ is a Cambodian martial art that includes close hand-to-hand combat, ground techniques and weapons. Bokator is one of the earliest Cambodian martial art and only younger than the Mon-Khmer martial art of yuthakun khom. Oral tradition indicates that bokator or an early form thereof was the close quarter combat system used by the armies of Angkor 1000 years ago.[1] The term bokator translates as "pounding a lion" from the words bok meaning to pound and tor (pronounced "tau") meaning lion. A common misunderstanding is that bokator refers to all Khmer martial arts while in reality it only represents one particular style.
