"Pass it On" video
It is the chosen path of every instructor, whether or not they call themselves "Kru" or "Ajahn", to pass it on:
This is just a nifty video I saw posted in a couple places. For the uninitiated, there is some star power behind the casting.
Samat Payakaroon, who I've covered many times in this blog, plays the camp's head trainer or Kru. Samat is arguably the best Muay Thai fighter to have walked the planet, and was even a top boxer in his time.
His protege is played by Moses Tor Sangtiennoi, the son of the famous fighter Sangtiennoi Sor Rungrot. Moses himself is a very successful fighter.
Sangtiennoi Sor Rungrot was one of the most famous fighters of his time. He had the nickname "The Deadly Kisser", because he, um...kissed his opponents before fighting.
Yeah...uh...well, the important part is the "Deadly".
Sangtiennoi is at the end of the video, accepting a new student...fitting that he should play the older version of his son.
Anyways, thought you all might enjoy that.
