This opponent’s Ram Muay was the most beautiful I have seen and I recommend that you watch it. She is an amateur boxer for the Thai National Games so her punches were really quick, tight and direct. Her coach was afraid of my muscles and didn’t want his fighter to get hurt, so he told her to stay away from me, which did effectively with her teep. The teep itself wasn’t always very strong (sometimes it was!), so I should have just walked through it, but it was mentally affecting me a great deal and it showed. Muay Thai is a performance. If you act like you weren’t hit, it may not be scored as if you were.
