[update: her latest fight Phetjee Jaa เพชรจีจ้า อ.มีคุณ – March Aswindam Fight [vid] ]

I’m excited to bring a new installment in the developing career of Phetjee Jaa “Diamond G” – the 11 year old girl who fights boys on Thai TV.  This video is a treat, even if you don’t understand Thai. It’s a 20 minute interview with her, her mother and her brother, Mawin, aged 12.  They check her abs against his and ask her loads of questions, bringing unique exposure to female Thai fighting. (She likes fighting, thinks she wins because she trains hard, likes that by fighting she is “helping Mom,” and reiterates many times that fighting does not hurt.  You can see her training with her brother who holds pads like a champ even though he’s tiny also.)

For those unfamiliar with her story I wrote an introductory article about Phetjee Jaa here: Phetjee Jaa O. Mee Khun เพชรจีจ้า อ.มีคุณ – The Girl Who Fights The Boys – Muay Thai  and then a follow up update here: Phetjee Jaa O. Mee Khun เพชรจีจ้า อ.มีคุณ – The Girl Who Fights The Boys – Part 2 

If you’re interested in the subject of female child Muay Thai fighting, Todd Kellstein’s film Buffalo Girls is a definite must see.  I wrote a review of the film here, giving my two cents on it: Way of Life – Children, Thailand & Muay | Film Review of Buffalo Girls

Female FightersMuay Thai

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
