Short Film

I’ve wanted to show more of my experiences surrounding a fight: the moments before, between and after – all the things of fights that aren’t fighting.  It’s a little difficult to capture some of this because I fight at night and the low light makes filming difficult, but it’s also a matter of pulling together hours of mundane preparation (like doing my hair or walking to the venue) and observational downtime.

So this short film is a small collection of images from my fight on the King’s Birthday.  Festival fights are very atmospheric and this one especially because of fireworks, fire balloons and a long stretch of waiting before my fight.

My husband Kevin is the cameraman and as a result is always “behind the scenes” and prefers to stay in the background.  He edited and put together this film as someone who shares these experiences with me – he has been at every fight and witnessed countless hours of my training.  My permission and approval was required for final cut, but we have never disagreed about expression and I think the film is beautiful.

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
