Muay Thai Wai Khru Ram Muay Kneeling Ring - Bangkok, Thailand - Daily Travel Photos
(Bangkok, Thailand)

A muay thai fighter prepares for his bout by performing a dance-like routine called a wai khru ram muay.

Lady Travelguy likes to playfully nag me about the abundance male-oriented content on this website (welcome to the internet, lady... travelguy). In an effort to appease the angry chicken, I'm trying to be mindful of displaying female-oriented, yet wholesome, photos here as well. So this one's for the females in the audience... and for the Gipper.

A French Muay Thai kickboxer performs a wai khru ram muay before his fight.

This hulking beast of a lad packs a punch! He was pitted against an Australian kickboxer who, like the Frenchman, was easily 6 feet tall (2m) and over 2 bills (91kg). Sitting ringside, I felt the sting of each knee to the face and solid left hook that crunched the nose. More photos of this fight, later, enshallah.
