The training session at Sasiprapa was exhausting but a lot of fun. The trainers were all very welcoming and helpful and seemed to enjoy us being there as much as we were. We started out skipping rope and shadow boxing, then did 4 rounds on the thai pads, bag work, drilled technique, and finished with more bag work. The humidity is just crazy, and by the time the session is over you're just soaked from head to toe. Afterward we took a Thai style shower where you scoop water from a tub with a bowl and pour it over yourself. My first experience training at an authentic Thai gym was amazing.

Here's a short video of Rungravee kicking the Thai Pads. Rungravee is a top 3 ranked fighter. Dude is a beast.
After training we headed to one of the million food stall in Thailand for lunch.

Tonight is dinner and then we head to Rajadomnern stadium to watch some Muay Thai fights. I'll probably be too tired to post afterwards, but will hopefully get some photos up tomorrow.
