 Muai Thai

 

 


Muai Thai

With feet, arms, fists and knees used in the fights, the unique martial art of "Muai Thai" has caught on in many countries. Boxers undergoing long periods of specialised training are immensely fit and strong although slight in build. It comes as no surprise when much larger men without the specialised iraining, feeling that they can easily win, find themselves on their backs in a few seconds when up against these steely-muscled fighters.

"Muai Thai" can be seen throughout the week at two major boxing stadiums, Lumphini (Tel. 0 2251 4303) on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and at Ratchadamnoen (Tel. 0 2281 4205) on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. And at the Channel 7 Stadium (Tel.O2272 0010) only on Saturdays.

Programmes generally feature eight bouts and commence around 6.00 p.m. Admission fees, apart from ringside seats, are reasonable.

 

Meditation

Meditation is one of the most popular aspects of Buddhism, practised by numerous Thais and laymen as a means of inspiring inner peace and well-being. The World Fellowship of Buddhists  (WFB) located on Sukhumvit Road between Soi 22 and 24 is the most convenient and useful place to learn about Thai Buddhism and meditation practised in certain Bangkok temples.
