Drowning the Genius In the Clinch

I’m still a little shy about this, but Lawrence Kenshin does amazing work and I’m grateful to have something so beautiful as a keepsake of such an important fight for me.  I love the Kenshin Breakdown of the great fighters, the slow-motion and repetition of grace – something that I’m still striving to achieve in even short glimpses.  But in a way, this is how it has always been, since the Iliad: the warrior goes to battle and the bard sings it in song.

I’m not putting myself in the same realm as Achilles or the Muay Thai legends.  Rather, I acknowledge that the achievement of greatness is in the hearts of fighters, not in our own eyes.  In the words of Jack Dempsey, “I was a pretty good fighter, but it w as the writers who made me great.”

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
