Fighting once in a week is already a challenge for any Muay Thai fighter, but fighting three times in four days is a whole different story. That’s what I did when I went to Buriram and stayed at Wor. Watthana, a Muay Thai camp founded by Frances and Boom, located in the Isaan region of Thailand.
“But you don’t look like a fighter.” Fighters come in all shapes, sizes, aesthetics, colors, and otherwise. The notion that there is a certain “look” that fighters need to have needs to be dismantled. Judging fighters based on their appearance is unfair and diversity in the world of combat sports should be celebrated.
