I just found this awesome looking documentary on Northern Thailand and Burma. It highlights a camp near the border run by Thai Army Lieutenant, retired boxer, and fight promoter Jawee Sukantha. many of this kids are orphaned boys and this is their only hope to escape poverty. What is even more interesting is that these kids are not fighting simple Mauythai but what is known as Kaard Chuek, no gloves, only rope bindings.
Best to watch the trailer below and see how you feel about it.
Thanks to Ronin Films for this trailer, can’t wait to see the full film.
