Muay Thai ~ Ratchadamnoen stadium, Bangkok
Jan 17, 2002

Considered by Martial Arts experts to be the ultimate in hand to hand fighting technique, the two main stadiums in Bangkok are the best places to see Thai Kickboxing - Muay Thai. It was my birthday and I could think of nothing better to treat myself to than a bout at Ratchadamnoen. It is a spectacle on many levels, from the boxers ritual dances before each fight to the music that swells and fades as the action in the ring heats and cools. Of the six fights we saw, there was only one serious injury. One minute in, a fighter had his leg broken by a vicious kick.
