Life in Thailand can be brutal. The poverty and lack of education is unrelenting, and there is little chance to escape the conditiopns that they are raised in. While it is bordering abuse, many parents see the opportunity of becoming a champion in their national sport of Muay Thai as their child’s only hope.
This is a fantastic trailer showing what many Thai children go through to master their country’s sport of choice and eventually become a Lumpinee Champion. No punches are pulled. These kids are using their knees, elbows, fists, and shins to finish each other in a brutal fashion.
What do you guys think of these parents putting their kids in the ring at an age as young as five?
