Muai Thai, o boxing da Thailand, is a special martial art. Um fighter começa a train aos six or seven years of age, e participa de sua first official fight aos eight or ten. Ele costuma fight three times more do que um occidental boxer.

A Thai boxer precisa train durante many hours every day. A demanda física é very high: they use hands, shins, elbows and knees. The training é tão intense e a pain é tão frequent que a career de um fighter costuma durar only some years.

In Thailand, os fighters costumam vir de poor families and, apesar do low salary, ajudam a sustentar their families desde young. But recentemente this fight se tornou um Olympic sport e passou a attract multifaceted fighters from all around the world.
