    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Somsong "the wood cutter" (infraggable crunk?)

    This is about my favorite thai boxing match ever, at least the one that I find the most memorable. Somsong is about the most indestructible dude ever.

    Nice match! The announcer's comments on Somsong are occasionally pretty hilarious. At one point the announcer calls him "Une boule de muscle... insensible a la douleur..." - Literally "A ball of muscle... unaffected by pain..."

    The taller man's hand techniques did not look very damaging, as Somsong deliberately pulls a WTF TKD stance on him (i.e. he lets himself get clocked in the face by punches) in order to protect against knees. A very entertaining match. I don't know how Somsong was able to have so many fights in his career if this is how much punishment he puts up with per match ;)

    I've actually been trying to incorporate that into my own game a bit, and seem to have some success with it.

    That's straight out of several video games... I'll have to try to figure out how he's pulling that off.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    um... throw a kick, spin around when you miss (like we're often taught in thai boxing) and throw another kick.

    HOLY ****, it all makes sense now!

    Maybe I should have rephrased my post "I'll have to practice that." ;)

    I don't find it to be too difficult to do as long as you're committing to your kicks
