Lerdrit is a Thai form of martial arts taught and used by the Royal Thai Army. Using open hands instead of fists, it is basically a modified version of Muay Thai. Forward pressure, kicks, knees, locking, grappling, and elbows are all major concepts in Lerdrit.

This form relates closely to Muay Boran, the predecessor of Muay Thai. Lerdrit is similar to Muay Boran with its use of palm strikes, elbows, and clinch fighting (the art of grappling from a standing position).
