Sepak Takraw | Incredible Attacks | Best Actions (HD)

Sepak takraw (Malay: sepak raga; Jawi: سيڤق راڬا; Thai: ตะกร้อ, rtgs: takro, pronounced [tā.krɔ̂ː]; Khmer: សីដក់ Sei Dak; Lao: ກະຕໍ້ ka-taw; Filipino: sipà, sipà tákraw, sepák tákraw; Vietnamese: cầu mây (calameae ball or rattan ball)), or kick volleyball, is a sport native to Southeast Asia. Sepak takraw differs from the similar sport of volleyball in its use of a rattan ball and only allowing players to use their feet, knee, chest and head to touch the ball. It is a popular sport in Southeast Asia.

In Malaysia, the game is called sepak raga or takraw. It is also kataw (Lao: twine and kick) while in Thailand it is called takraw. In Myanmar it is known as chin lone, and is considered more of an art as there is often no opposing team, and the point is to keep the ball aloft gracefully and interestingly. In the Philippines, besides takraw it is also known as sipa, meaning kick.

Chinlone Training Progression July 2017

Chinlone is a traditional sport from Myanmar. It is similar to footbag and freestyle football, but a lot older. While freestyle football and footbag emerged only a couple of decades ago, Chinlone is known to Myanmars people for at least 1500 years. It is Myanmars cultural heritage and (so far) it is unique to Myanmar. Chinlone Europe is an association of the very few european players. We wish to promote and practice Chinlone in Europe, to support Myanmars tradition and recognize its beauty and cultural abundance. Mingalabar!

1896 Burmese Martial Art (Thaing) & Chinlone Exhibition In London

These two films were filmed in July 1896 by Lumiere camera operator Alexandre Promio.
The Location was Sydenham Crystal Place Park London.
The first film depicts a form of Burmese martial art which includes open hand strikes, kicking and grappling. It is unclear what style is depicted as Burma (Myanmar) has a large variety of styles. (Martial Styles of Myanmar)
Both practitioners seem to be sparring in a light friendly manner for the camera.

The second film presents a solo performance of the ball exercises known in Burma (Mynamar) as Chinlone. Chinlone dates back over 1,500 years, and is heavily influenced by traditional Burmese martial art and dance. It was originally conceived as a form of entertainment for Burmese royalty. It is also played as a team sport and over the centuries, players have developed more than 200 different ways of kicking the ball. Form is all important in Chinlone, there is a correct way to position the hands, arms, torso, and head during the moves. A move is considered to have been done well only if the form is good.

*Footnote:
In the 1897 Catalogue of Lumière Cinematograph Film published by Fuerst Brothers, the company's London agents lists films (53) 'Japanese Jugglers' and (56) 'Japanese Wrestlers'.
In the 1907 Catalogue Général des Films Lumière, their nationality was changed to Javanese.

In the summer of 1896, a company of exotic performers were one of the attractions at the Crystal Palace and they were from Burma. These performers are the ones that appear in Lumiere films 53 & 56, so its seems clearly that their nationality is Burmese not Javanese.

As advertisements in the Morning Post dated May 21st 1896 show, dancers and wrestlers were among the 'Burma in London' attractions. The Burmese 'football players' also mentioned in the ads of the Morning Post, are in fact Chinlone practitioners, an ancient Myanmar (Burmese) ball art based on traditional dance and martial art moves.
Chinlone can be played as a team sport which probably gave rise to billing it as football. When performed solo, it resembles a juggling act using balls. One of most famous practitioners at the juggling of balls style performance was Moung Toon. It is most likely that we are viewing a performance by Toon in film No. 53.

First European Chinlone Convention

This video shows the first ever european Chinlone convention held in Vienna in August 2016. A world premiere! The four steps of Chinlone training we did are shown:
I: Group practice of basic moves/warm up
II: Solo practice of basic moves
III: Hand toss for advanced moves
IV: Wein Kat Standard Chinlone playing

All our experience in playing Chinlone comes from the method of Master U Maung Maung from Mandalay. He trains lots of people from all over the world. He is one of the most famous teachers of Chinlone.

Amazing Sport - Chinlone

A team of six players pass the ball back and forth with their feet, knees and heads as they walk around a circle. One player goes into the center to solo, creating a dance of various moves strung together. The soloist is supported by the other players who try to pass the ball back with one kick. When the ball drops to the ground it is dead, and the play starts again.

Chinlone means basket-rounded or rounded basket in Burmese. The ball is woven from rattan, and makes a distinctive clicking sound when kicked that is part of the aesthetic of the game. Players use six points of contact with the ball: the top of the toes, the inner and outer sides of the foot, the sole, the heel, and the knee. The game is played barefoot or in chinlone shoes that allow the players to feel the ball and the ground as directly as possible. The typical playing circle is 6.7 metres (22 ft) in diameter. The ideal playing surface is dry, hard packed dirt, but almost any flat surface will do.

Chinlone is over 1,500 years old and was once played for Burma royalty. Over the centuries, players have developed more than 200 different ways of kicking the ball. Many of the moves are similar to those of Burma dance and martial art. Some of the most difficult strokes are done behind the back without seeing the ball as it is kicked. Form is all important in chinlone: there is a correct way to position the hands, arms, torso, and head during the moves. A move is considered to have been done well only if the form is good.

Burma is a predominantly Buddhist country, and chinlone games are a featured part of the many Buddhist festivals that take place during the year. The largest of these festivals goes on for more than a month with up to a thousand teams. An announcer calls out the names of the moves and entertains the audience with clever wordplay. Live music from a traditional orchestra inspires the players and shapes the style and rhythm of their play. The players play in time to the music and the musicians accent the kicks.

Both men and women play chinlone, often on the same team. Adults and children can play on the same team, and it is not unusual to see elders in their 80s playing.

In addition to the team style of chinlone, which is called wein chin or circle kick, there is also a solo performance style called tapandaing. This solo style is only performed by women.

Chinlone is one of a family of football games played throughout the world. It is related to similar games in Southeast Asia known as takraw in Thailand, sepak raga in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, sipa in the Philippines, kator in Laos and da cau in Vietnam. A competitive variation of the game played over a net, called sepak takraw was developed in Malaysia in the 1940s. The origins of chinlone may be related to the ancient Chinese game of cuju or tsu chu, which is acknowledged by FIFA as being the oldest form of soccer. A similar game is also played in Japan where it is known as kemari. Chinlone is also related to the family of sports played by kicking a shuttlecock, known as jianzi in China and Taiwan, and jegichagi in Korea. And there is some evidence to suggest that a variation of these games traveled across the Bering Straits and influenced Native Americans, who also played a variety of games keeping a ball up with the feet. These games are thought to be the origin of footbag, also known as hacky sack
