Some of you may be athletically inclined, and some of you may share genetic traits with your couch. Regardless, it’s hard not to appreciate the dedication to training that goes into making a competent competitor – and this is true of MMA, boxing, judo, jiu-jitsu and especially Muay Thai. Take the trainer in the following video as an example: he knows his fighter sucks and has no control, but he thrusts himself once more unto the breach of danger repeatedly. Then… WHAMMO.

When training in Thailand, it’s customary to tip your pad man. I’d say this poor guy earned his extra baht for sure.
