  1. Sounds like a job for 'Bullshit Man' If the guy is that loud mouthed, he's going to get found out eventually. People are going to look him up and find there's no evidence for his 'achievements'. I think Sylvie or Kevin posted last year about a Muay Thai gym owner in Mexico (I think it was Mexico, apologies if it wasn't, Mexicans) who claimed to have fought and beaten top level Muay Thai stadium fighters in Thailand, and had posted a picture from his fighting days in the ring as proof. The guy in the picture was Karuhat. People were pointing this out in the com
  2. Where abouts in Bangkok are you staying? If you're anywhere near Khao San area, there's one on Ram Buttri which I've been to a few times over the years, they always do a nice job. Looking on Google maps it's near Max's magic Thai food, and looking on streetview the place is called Ariya hair cut.
  3. I remember you posting questions about your upcoming trip last year. Glad to hear it went well
  4. Just grab some bags of fruit from the market on your way in then, it'll definitely be appreciated. Which gym are you training at? To ask them if they want to go eat, just say 'Gin khao' (means 'consume rice' )
  5. I've tipped trainers over in Thailand plenty of times, and they've always appreciated it. I'm sure they'd be happy with any gift you offered. How about treating them to a meal? The bonus for you would be they'll probably order dishes for you that you'd never know about otherwise. Ask them if they know a good Isaan restaurant (the best regional cuisine in Thailand - in my humble opinion)
  6. My gym's open again now - limited numbers and no sparring or clinch. Went to the lunch time session earlier. West Australia shut itself off from the rest of Australia and the world and it's worked well. I think there's only a handful of active cases in the whole state so things are starting to return to normal (schools have gone back, restaurants allowed limited openings). Felt great to smash the pads again!
  7. I've been to Pai, but it was back in 2005. It was really nice back then, hopefully it hasn't changed too much. Mae Hong Son is a really nice town as well. Beautiful scenery up that way.
  8. You got your own ring? Ha, do you just spar in it? Better watch you don't get in trouble with your local authorities like my mate did. I'd met this guy 6 years before I moved to Australia and kept in touch with him, had him on facebook when that got popular. I'd always assumed he owned a Muay Thai Gym in Perth as he was always promoting events at his 'gym' on his facebook page. But when I moved to Perth I found out he'd just been running a fight club in his back yard! Once it was brought to attention of his local council they sent him an angry letter saying the police had been contacted,
  9. Sylvie if you enjoy rock climbing documentaries and books, have you read or seen 'Touching the Void'? Both the book and the film are absolutely brilliant.
  10. This one's pretty interesting, mostly focuses on Sityodtong but also features other top gyms of the golden age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScAK-Y0c-rU I like the Muay Thai Stories on Lawrence Kenshin's youtube channel. I think most or all of them were filmed by a girl called Angie Wong (I'm assuming her family name is Wong, her instagram handle is @angiewon9) but Lawrence Kenshin doesn't seem to give her any credit for it. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtBmulRKslSIlrEetkk1J1O2j3PZ-48kY
  11. Oley Kiatoneway works as a trainer at Parunchai Gym, Thung Song, Nakhon Si Thammarat.
  12. The Khmers didn't leave any written history behind, only what was carved on the temples of Ankor. Some foreigners who lived there at Ankor's height left detailed writings of their time there, which is how historians are able to have some understanding of what life was like there. Back to regional fighting styles - Thailand, Cambodia, Burma and Laos have all been fighting each other and occupying each others territory for centuries. There definitely will have been cross over between styles at various points in history.
  13. Whatever it is, it's infected and inflamed. Keep putting antiseptic cream on it, but if it doesn't improve or starts getting worse then better to get yourself to a doctor (if that's possible at the moment). Probably worth pointing out I have no medical training by the way, beyond some first aid courses
