B Mac reacted to Sylvie von Duuglas-Ittu in Running List of Books and Films to Inspire
There aren't a lot of books or films directly about Muay Thai, the mental game for Muay Thai, the fighter's journey or all that. There are more options for other sports that have either been around for longer (Golf, Tennis, Running), or that have an English-speaking target audience (ultra-running, rock climbing).
However, I find some sports very, very inspiring for Muay Thai and what the mental side of it feels like - to me anyway. Here's my running list of books and films:
Marathon Monks of Mt Hiei:
The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance
A Wrestling Life: the Inspiring Stories of Dan Gable
B Mac reacted to Oliver in Western boxing beautiful flow /dern fights
Dunno if this is the kinda thing ya'll like, most wouldn't describe his way as beautiful. But for me, hell yeah it qualifies. Totally graceful in those body shot to head shot transitions, and his attack has some scary voodoo type defence built into it. He feels where his opponent wants to go, like, actually feels, because he likes having his body so close to him to judge timing on those head rolls. In other fights he uses that boxer clinch thing more, kinda funky, and it's done sly and efficient.
