Thai Boxing

One of the last stops on our bike tour in Bangkok was to a local open-air Muay Thai school. Also known as kick boxing!

Even though we were all pretty exhausted after 3.5 hours of biking at this point. LB decided he probably wouldn’t get another chance in this lifetime to train with a real Thai boxing master.

This guy has trained several city champions. The walls were covered in photos of his winners. And Thai boxing in Bangkok… ain’t no joke.

So he put on the silky little shorts (who knows whose they were, or how many other people had worn them, but we’ll try not to think about that) strapped on the boxing gloves and went to work.

This little half hour session cost us 100 THB. About $3.50. (The guide suggested 50 baht, but we were feeling generous.)

Ready?

“Kick!”

“Elbow!”

“Uh… Choo!”

(At least that’s what it sounded like to me. I think it was supposed to be “Punch!”

  1. Love the new look of your blog! Header pics are great! Where can you go and a have a lesson with a master trainer for $3.50. Isn’t Thailand great?! Really enjoy all your pics and adventures.

    • Thanks! I’ve needed to change that header from the default for a while. It’s fun to see our own pictures up there now. And you are correct. Thailand is truly amazing!

  2. hi, just wondering if you ever found anywhere in shenyang to do any thai boxing / kickboxing training? I used to do a little in Shanghai but not found anywhere here yet. Cheers!

    • I asked around a little but still haven’t heard of anywhere. I’ll let you know if I do though!
