Young Muay Thai Boxers

Young Muay Thai boxers, aged from 8 to 25, compete in different categories at a boxing stadium in Buriram Province in the northeastern Thai region of Isan. Muay Thai is deeply entwined in the history of Thailand. It developed from the need for hand-to-hand combat centuries ago due to invasions by neighboring countries when Thai people had to rely on their ability to defend themselves.
