Practice at the Thai boxing club

Thai boxing is evidently the national sports here and around 200’000 people make their living out of it. Huge stadiums are dedicated to it and every town has its ring. Even tiny Railay has one, and local boxers will gladly teach some tricks to foreigners for a few hundreds baths. Thai boxing is impressive as punches and kicks are allowed. There was nevertheless no winner today, only a tough practice. Yet tomorrow is fight night and this will definitely be another story.  (click on pictures for high res)
