The Muay boxing is the national Thai sport, yet it remains a sport that has very few athletes, but not only in Asia. This is not simple or boxing fight, but a real combat, in which it is allowed to use indiscriminately hands, fists, feet, elbows, head or knees. And it is indeed necessary to exercise them all together, if you do not want to suffer the corresponding attacks.
For these reasons, the peculiar ‘muay thai boxing’ presupposes total spirit of sacrifice, passion for sports but also constant effort in training: to bear the ‘immense effort required to overcome the opponent, need physical and athletic preparation, strength, dexterity, pure energy but this is not enough thinking the same qualities possessed by the opponent’s turn.
In addition there is the effect of fatigue, which makes regular critical circumstances and stages of combat: if they want to win the victory in the ring, and fortune and titles, athletes must have a strong predisposition to collect the shots against, and always be quick to react, even when fatigue literally blurs vision.
But even more of physical training, steady and hard, visiting the gym during training, as an invisible eye privileged by their availability, what struck me was especially noted the attention of these men towards memory: I never expected to see so many photographs and testimonies of victories, trophies, events and battles, fixed forever in the images placed on the walls of the room.
Then I also could see the joy of these passionate hearts in wants show it, with pride and great dignity. Then I realized that even the most athletic of the workout to get to certain successes in this hard combat sport serves to build themselves, and do it first of all by scoring each day that has lived in the effort as in pain, and have memory that it becomes finally treasure in view of new evidence, increasingly harsh.
So to grow, and overcome the limitations imposed by human injury and inevitable defeats imprinted in the images to permanent witness, and memory. And turn them into new successes.
