Do read the (free) Patreon post which talks much more about this amazing video and has lots more on Dieselnoi and the 123 Book. When I’m able to make historic videos like this they are for everyone. In this interview with Dieselnoi we get the amazing view of the history of Thailand’s fighters from one of the best who ever fought, and who lived through the Golden Age of the sport. And, you get to know him as one of the most passionate men in the world about Muay Thai. I hope you enjoy it!
Most of what we know and think about the great fighters and Muay Thai of Thailand comes to us through the filter of a few 100 videos that have survived, and some of the personal records that are preserved, but so much is lost to history, and can only be found in the oral history of the men who lived through those times. Fighters who fought the big fights, were in the stadia when they happened. It’s so special to be able to hear directly from them.
This book is awesome, the most comprehensive book on the great history of Thailand’s Muay Thai. You can see a copy of the book on the Roundtable forum here, and get a real world copy from the Thai Smai Bangkok store (go to the Patreon post linked above for how to contact them). Here is a photographic copy.

I recently made public for everyone also the 2 day 4 Legend Seminar I was able to arrange a few years ago with the support of patrons. It was an incredible event with Dieselnoi, Chatchai, Karuhat and the sadly now departed Namkabuan. You can watch that here, and share it with friends:
