    To learn Muay Laos you would have to spend a long time in the country itself(Laos),search for a techer,then study,would take a long time,is it worth it? who knows.

    However why not just find a good Muay Thai camp and get your grounding in that art,perhaps in Issarn where Laos is spoken and maybe you could make a contact that would allow you to Learn Muay Mak Bep and Ling Lom etc etc,either way its to South East Asia you need to turm brother,good luck :)

    I've seen Muay Pootai (spelling), which bears remarkable resemblance to muaylaos. Pootais are closely related to Poolaos. There are several Pootai villages scattered around Kalasin and Mukdahaan. Perhaps you may be able to find teacher of muaypootai there. Once you find one, you can probably get connection to train in Loas.

    One of my Muay Thai teachers, Mike Xayana is from Laos and teaches a Laotian form of Muay Thai - Gietphongxai - though I believe this is his proper name, it appears to be nearly identical to Muay Thai.

    muay laos other name is "ling lom" (wind monkey) but ling lom is also a part of the thai pahuyuth. ling lom and muay thai used to be taught together, but they eventually grew apart.

    i think this is right. im kinda sleepy at the moment so im not sure lol

    Kwai Tua Noi, thank you for the information. That certainly clarifies it for me.
