    I understood everything she said.

    I like the bit were the woman says along the lines of "I give you my word, if you have the confidence you can do anything". Or perhaps "I do believe without sports, you won't have a life." And she really isn't that hard to understand.

    A little TKD cross training (yes blasphemy, I know) in these kicks could really help out methinks. Cause geez... I'm not a fighter but I have a harder spinning back kick then that guy and can keep my balance afterwards.
    They almost never use the kick- SBP or side kick, for that matter, it's probably just there as a demo, or to pad the tape series. There's probably one or two guys that can use a spin kick well, and show boat with it- En stoneman Fairtex comes to mind, but even then, it's more of an insult than a knockout kick.

    lol I just now found this thread despite the fact that I'm specifically mentioned twice.

    I trained with Pedro before I trained with Richard by the way. Pedro is happily living and running a school in Thailand now. www.ancientmuaythai.com

    I have never tried a SBK, but it always looked to me like a last resort defensive move, like if you threw a roundhouse kick and missed, and ended up turned around backwards. You throw a back kick because you're turned around and want to get some distance between you and your opponent while you get back in your stance. But I am not an expert here, I'm just going by how it looks to me when I've seen it used.

    also isnt it odd how the spelling of thais names seems to change so much?
    Thai has sounds that English doesn't have, and vice versa. Plus, Thai script is phonetic and represents the Thai language much more closely than the Roman (aka English) script can. So it's really hard to spell most Thai words using the Roman script in a way that will tell English speakers how to pronounce them correctly. The result is that Thai words get spelled many different ways when Romanized.

    A funny outcome is that there are some Thais who work in the tourism sector and pronounce the names of various popular tourist destinations the way that foreigners do (when talking to foreigners). For the reverse example, imagine leading a Thai person on a tour of the Washington monument and pronouncing it "Wa-ching-tun" because Thai doesn't have an "sh" sound, but does have a "ch" sound.
