Muay Thai kickboxing has become even more popular worldwide since action star Tony Jaa’s 2003 breakout movie ‘Ong Bak’. The fighting is brutal, but grace infuses the way Thai boxers pivot, lunge and punch.
Each bout begins with garlanded fighters praying, then dancing a rite in honour of past and present masters, as live music speeds up towards the bell in the Lumpini Boxing Stadium, the sport’s most hallowed arena.
