Muay Thai is something I’ve always respected, but never really became interested in enough to learn about. Kind of like my relationship with Marilyn Manson, but that’s for another day (I listend to the first five songs off his new album and thought it was really fucking good–I got a real Daivd Bowie vibe). So anway, when I saw something about Muay Thai on the National Geographic channel I casaully watched it for a bit to see if I could absorb some knowledge. You know, maybe learn how to chop down a banana tree with my bare hands, feet, shins, knees and elbows–who knows? This clip is kind of like a cliff notes of this one hour documentary and A LOT of really good information is cut out, but it’s going to be on again Wednesday at midnight so set your Tivo or DVRs or whatever and we all can learn how to defend ourselves against those sneaky fucking trees always lurking around in forests.
Muay Thai = Fighting Trees
