It is also about Muay Thai, a traditional distinct sport born to the country of Thailand. A culture who prides itself on its national sport, where real warriors live breath work and teach others day in and day out, welcomes us to its oldest stadium, to share the love, respect, and integrity of Muay Thai.”
