Muay Thai kick boxing, Thailands national sport. In Phuket, Patong Beach, Thailand, cars drive down every street with speakers blaring advertising each nights special event. “TONIGHT TONIGHT BIG FIGHT!” I paid a little extra to sit ring side so I could really feel the action. I was so close I was able to lean against the ring and poke my camera up and under the ropes to get a clear shot. The fights are a must see for anyone trying to experience the heart and soul of Thailand as you can see the passion in their eyes as they face off with their opponent. Fighters from around the world including Australia and Afghanistan come to challenge Thailand’s elite and I was even surprised to see the seriousness in boys as young ten who entered the ring and never held back.

Go see it for yourself when your in Thailand next.
