PTT & Liverkick present "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay" Episode 2!

  • Published in Muay Thai

From Phuket Top Team, presented by Liverkick.com!

Boyd from PTT is nothing if not enterprising. Muay Thai documentaries are always anticipated and appreciated; remember the mild furore when the Lumpinee one was announced and its trailers released? A fantastic way of promoting oneself whilst managing to entertain a legion of Muay Thai doco hungry fight fans.

This documentary is somewhat different from the norm, being released in multiple parts. It will follow several fighters, namely "Lucky", a former Rajadamnern and Lumpinee stadium fighter who suffered a nasty arm break one year ago and suffered a subsequent forced exile from the ring; Yoduman, a young boy of 13, with less than three months Muay Thai training but who has already fought three times - twice in Bangla Stadium - and has looked like a composed veteran in the process; Malik, a cocky 19yr old American Nak Muay with a Bangla Stadium title to his name, among other featured stars of the show.

Within the first year of existence, PTT has built up a large online presence through twitter and youtube videos, and has attracted top notch fighters to train there such as Roger Huerta, Mike Swick, Jorge Masvidal, Andrew Leone, and a handful of notable Muay Thai fighters and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts. Now, the latest video trend is not an instructional, a seminar or even one of the boy's fights from Bangla Stadium... it is a documentary about Muay Thai from the perspective of several fighters from the camp, entitled "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay".

Here is episode 2:

Stay tuned to liverkick for the next episode of this ongoing documentary series, and follow @PhuketTopTeam on twitter.
