Tony Jaa mashed Michael Jackson's dance moves with muay-thai, and it's beyond awesome

Tony Jaa mashed Michael Jackson's dance moves with muay-thai, and it's beyond awesome

Remember that time when we told you guys that Anderson Silva impersonated Michael Jackson on the cover of the Brazilian Rolling Stone and there was a surprising lack of gruesome Michael Jackson jokes in the comment section? It seemed like decades ago, but it was actually this time last year. In reality, it doesn't feel like it was decades ago unless you were attacked by a chronokinetic terrorist sometime this afternoon. According to people on the internet, they actually exist. There, now you have something else to be deathly afraid of when you lock your door at night.

Set aside Michael Jackson's drug problem and his alleged issue with children, the guy invented a new way to move one's body, let alone a dance. That's the equivalent of creating a new color that has never been seen before in human history. If Michael Jackson wasn't a super-successful pop icon, he would have been able to slip every strike imaginable in a muay-thai match. This is all theory that was spawned by Tony Jaa's most recent martial arts demo in which he somehow mashed Michael Jackson's dance moves with muay-thai. Props to jersonordavid on the +100 news tip.

Cool stunts and shit, but Muay Boran is bullshit dance moves. Buakaw would fuck this guy up something fierce.

These were some deadly techniques Sensei Seagal taught Michael Jack-Son many many years ago.
