Kick Boxing

Besides Siamese cats and a go-go bars, Thailand is also famous for its Muay Thai. This art of boxing, which is an on going self defense art form, was an element made compulsory for military training by King Naresuan, one of Thailand's greatest monarchs. These days it is a popular sport and is one of the few ways that a poor country boy can turn his rags into riches.

The fights are commonly fierce and furious though the best boxers display remarkable skills, as well as great fitness and a good contest is decided by application of technique rather than brute force.

Often as entertaining as the action in the ring is, the reaction of the spectators who yell and shout encouragement to the boxers is greater as the excitement mounts.

There are two boxing stadiums in Bangkok, Ratchadamnoen Stadium and Lumphini Stadium. Between them, they offer professional bouts virtually every night of the week.
