Muaythai Journal released some footage of of 8 year old children fighting in Pitchit, Thailand. Kids fight for various reasons, often to help support their families and sometimes even simply for glory of becoming the champion.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I really hope Muaythai Journal interviews some kids in the future. Having competed in Judo from a similar age, I do not remember concepts of pain or fear. So I wonder how do these kids feel about fighting and do they get injured severely as one would imagine?
What are your thoughts on kids so young competing on such a level? Let me know below so we can discuss.
Many thanks to Muaythai Journal for the upload
