Talk about throw back Thursday! ・・・
This picture was taken 11 years ago.
@tech8mma , a long time training partner and friend, @markdellagrotte , my long time Kru, and I performed an exhibition Muay Thai fight, at Tufts University.
It was A special event known as "The Thai Festival" run by international students from Thailand, that attended Tufts.
Kru Mark made the introduction, first in English. Then stunned the crowd when he started speaking and translating in the Thai language.
Afterward, Tateki and I performed a full Wai Kru Dance, then did one round of Muay Thai Sparring. No shin guards or head gear. It was a great night and we as the performers were not thai!!
It was just The Haitian, The Japanese, and The Italian, as Tateki likes to out it, and we did a great job displaying pure and authentic Muay Thai.
Love this picture and glad to have been part of that moment. - 4 months ago
