History / Origins

ETYMOLOGY

The term Xtreme Martial Arts it exactly how it’s read, “Extreme Martial Arts”. This is due to it’s blend of the most difficult moves from many different martial arts from across the world.

BEGINNINGS

Xtreme Martial Arts has been derived from the very branch of Martial Arts, however with an emphasis on showmanship. Along with many other forms of Martial Arts such as the Chinese Martial Arts, Japanese Martial Arts, Korean Martial Arts, Southeast Martial Arts, and General Martial Arts, XMA evolved as a varied form of the original Martial Arts. It is a brand currently owned by Micheal Chaturantabut, also called Mike Chat.

Mike Chat originally comes from the south Thailand. Originally a stuntman, today he is one of the most versatile and talented martial artists. At the start of his career, he gained 15 years of experience in martial arts, performing yoga, Boxing, Okinawan Shorei-Ryu, Taekwondo, Chinese Wushu, and Kickboxing. With his outstanding capabilities in the field and prolific performance, he made it to the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 1992. Mike Chat has won more than 50 national and international titles in forms.

PRESENT DAY

The popularity of Mike Chat exploded when he won a gold medal at the ISKA World Championship in 1995. He also won two gold medals at WAKO World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany. He also came under the limelight with his photos transpiring various magazines and exhibitions, thereby earning his name a lot of fame. He was casted on television shows watched by over 25,000 people. After the first few appearances on the screen at ESPN, Eurosport and Fox, Mike participated in Mortal Kombat, a very famous television series, and also Martial Law, another television series.

His other appearances were evidenced in Charmed, Power Rangers, and Nash Bridges.

Presently, he is known to have combined a whole new spectrum of Martial Arts, called the XMA. Coupled with gymnastics, music, aerobatics, drama and tunes, the focus of the audience experienced a major switch. There has been a shift from the traditional martial arts to Xtreme Martial Arts to cater to platforms of entertainment and recreation, with an innovative taste and attention for the crowd. Most of the public is captivated by the equilibrium, balance, music, fascination towards choreography and drama.

Mike Chat has also trained over 85 world champions performing martial arts and Xtreme Martial Arts today, such as Taylor Launter, Jaden Smith, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Keanu Reeves. Artists such as Usher, Black Eyed Peas, and few others have also evolved through Mike Chat.

Some of the movies that have adopted XMA in diverse ways are X-MEN, Spiderman, Ironman, The Dark Knight, Matrix Trilogy, and TRON Legacy.

PHILOSOPHY

Xtreme Martial Arts is backed by a philosophy for all martial artists who pursue it. The prime focus of the artist is to be able to demonstrate his capability and help serve. Xtreme Martial Arts is a mixture of traditional martial arts and other forms of martial arts, and has therefore a more lavish outlook than the rest. It combines all forms of possible exhibitions of talent and pomp for the audience to be impressed.

Most artists like to perform for fame; however, some may also be driven by passion to actualize themselves. Their whole purpose is to accomplish their goal through high-flying aerobatics or gymnastics and inspire the crowd with their stunning movements in the ring accompanied by flashy tunes, drama and music.

For an Xtreme Martial Artist, performance is not only restricted to physical power and strength. It also mirrors their mind and soul, and through their conviction, they perform to the satisfaction of both their mind and body.

Therefore, Xtreme Martial Arts is not just for the elite. It is as much for the beginners at entry level. It is about constantly improving physical agility and is a strong path backed by philosophical dimensions.

For all the performances, there must be at least one aerial movement that involves a twist of a spin of about 360 degrees. However, participants should note that these moves should happen when the official time starts. Any performance that does not fulfill these rules is disqualified.
