Muay Kaad Chuek

kickboxing2-0.jpg

During the Ayuthaya era came the introduction of Muay Kaad Chuek. That is the use of unrefined hemp wrappings to protect the fingers and wrists. A length of around 20 metres was enough to bind one hand. The use of Muay Kaad Chuek quickly spread, as a bound fist is tougher, stronger and better protected against injury than an unbound one. It is said that before a contest fighters immersed their fists in water. This would cause the binding to harden when it dried, making it capable of producing serious injury. Some people go further and claim that fighters dipped their hands in glue and ground glass.

The latest scandal rocking the Thai establishment involves 22 year old actress Chotiros Suriyawong. She hit the headlines when she recently attended the Thai version of the Oscars in a very revealing dress. She later said that her intention was to get some media attention but she got far more than she bargained for. Her pictures have been plastered all over the Thai media. Consequences of her actions include a sentence of community service passed down by her university. A film producer also announced that he would delete all of her scenes in an upcoming movie.

Virus

Well that’s enough from me as I’m still recovering from that b@stard virus.
It knocked me out for nearly the entire working week, and I’ve been surviving on Mulligatawny Soup and oranges!, I’m (obviously) back at the PC now, but my head still feels like it’s full of cotton wool with a G-Clamp tightening the outside. If this bad boy comes your way I recommend the above food items with regular Day Nurse and Night Nurse, thus guaranteeing full delirium.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Virus, be sure to check out ‘Chameleon’ which is the latest darkside DnB offering from the masters that are Ed Rush & Optical.
