    Just wondering how many of us are fans of combat sports in general?
    I have boxed since I was a kid and spent 2yrs in Thailand training muay Thai (got my shins split open too many times and have the scars to prove it!) Of all the martial arts I found this to be the roughest and have fought rounds with no shin pads and have been cut by elbows,Thai fighters are tough and have terrific stamina.
    Just like to know how many practice/train in combat sports or are a fan in general?
    We have all heard of dog's and owner's resembling each other and it seem's natural to be attracted to a breed that is so athletic and single minded.
    For me it was like an instant thing,the first pitbull i saw was a bitch on a spring pole screaming and giving it her all,right then the journey started and has never waned,i'm still mad about them and can't ever see a time when i won't,beyond family and friends the dog's hold a unique interest for me.

    There's a gaggle of these posts...

    Majority have dabbled or bare minimum watch the free "paramount channel" fights and act like experts.

    ah apologies for not checking first.
    True it look's easy from the armchair but when you are in there it's a whole different story.

    I am a purlpe belt in Jiujitsu and have trained thai boxing for a bout 12 years. I also have trained in Thailand and am about to go back in two days! I have handful of fights as well, nothing in stadiums.

    Wish I was back there! Where do you train in Thailand? Never had a stadium fight but loved every minute of my training and the life there is fantastic.

    Purple belt jujitsu real nice. Takes lots of time and dedication. Hope you get to black. If not purple is great.

    I am actually not training but was going to train in Issan somewhere until I injured myself training jiujitsu. It just spared me from getting my ass kicked by 12 year olds! I will get to black belt one day in Jiujitsu, hopefully within the next 5 years.

    yeah iv'e been to korat and true about the tough kids,real match standard at 7yrs old,most western kids would be unable to deal with that kind of pressure,but its a different culture and they hate to lose face so no crying.
    good luck with the ju jitsu and enjoy thailand!

    Western kids start wrestling when they can walk and weight cut in middle school. Anyone starting young enough can handle anything...

    No doubt wrestling is a tough sport, maybe the toughest, especially the way we practice it here, but American children are not sent to compete at a professional level at 8 years old with the pressure of not only thai culture but earning money for the family, it's next level.[/QUOTE]

    Wouldn't deny that. That the "elite" wrestler of the same age and raise him doing thai boxing instead they'd be just fine and compete.

    My point was kids are pliable. What they're raised doing they will do. Regardless of where they live. Take a stand out thai boxing kid, feed him happy meals and toss him an iPad from birth he'd be little chunky nerd like kids raised that way.

    Saying a childs land of birth inhibits its ability to adjust to any way its raised is flat stupid imo.

    As a youngster I use to box at the fontana boxing club . Worst sparring session I had was with a chick I didn’t feel too right about beebopping her funny part she could tell by the end of it she probably felt like she had balls

    It has nothing to do with the place they were born but the culture of that place. in Thailand they send their kids to Bangkok and those kids live as professional fighters from a very young age very far from home away from their parents and The living that they make as fighters help support their families. I’m not saying life in America is easy but most eight-year-old wrestlers do not have that stress, maybe none. To your point if an American kid was to grow up in Thailand in the same circumstance with the same culture then of course he would be able to do it. And I am writing this post from Thailand After I just watched 2 12-year-old kids beat the fuck out of each other.
