Much has happened in the last weeks, some of it quite painful. This post is about my return. I had a chance to train with Karuhat for a few days following our attendance of Namkabuan’s Funeral in Nongki, Buriram. We drove back down to Pattaya and he stayed with us for a couple of days. I wanted to spar with him lightly, and even more just work with him and move. It’s been a while.
Above are my thoughts on the first day, so many things coming back to me after I’ve been sparring so much with Yodkhunpon, who has a very different style. I wanted to fold back in Karuhat’s way of reading.
I don’t want to mention it only in passing. If you don’t follow me on Facebook and missed the very sad news of Namkabuan’s passing from stage IV lung cancer here is a glimpse into the funeral ceremony though Kevin’s beautiful photos of a very painful day:
On my Patreon, free for everyone, are interviews I did with Namkabuan and his kru Arjan Pramod, in the last months of his life. I hope to be writing about what he meant to me, and what his death meant to me, soon. Thank you to everyone who donated to help him in his battle, and his family through our crowdfunding support.
