Kevin and I are starting a new effort in our Preserver The Legacy project. With the support of our patrons we are hiring translators to create subtitles for classic Muay Thai fights. We’ve all enjoyed watching great fights and hearing the enthusiasm, but we are missing a ton of information when we can’t understand the commentator. The fight above with Chamuakpet going for his 8th national stadium belt vs Paidaeng, younger brother of Nokweed Davy, is our first translation fight. There are so many great things in the commentary, from discussion of how the odds were moving through the fight, to the specific strategies Chamuakpet was using as an older fighter, at the age of 32. It’s all part of making the Golden Age of Muay Thai more accessible to everyone.
If you’d like to support this translation project and so many other things, and get access to the huge Muay Thai Library, consider becoming a patron, the suggested pledge is $5.
More on Chamuakpet…
You can study Chamuakpet’s Muay Thai straight from him, in two sessions from the Muay Thai Library project:
#81 Chamuakpet Hapalang 2 – Muay Khao Internal Attacks (65 min) watch it here
#49 Chamuakpet Hapalang – Devastating Knee in Combination (66 min) watch it here
Below is an extended 7 minute excerpt from session #81, lots to learn:
Who Did Chamuakpet Thing Was Great?
We also asked Chamuakpet who he thought were the 5 greatest fighters of all time. Check out his list of the greatest of the greats:
Watch His Battles With Langsuan, there was a Murder in the Ring
Kevin and I also do Watch With Mes where we sit down and geek out at old fights. One of our watch with Mes followed his two fights with Langsuan, two incredible Muay Khao masters, during which Chamuakpet’s manager was shot in his corner.
