Before we went on our travels...

We promised each other...

That there was nothing that could happen

to make us come back here.

For Muay Thai boxers...

That is the ultimate goal.

During the boxing industries hayday,

The amount of money bet on boxing

was astronomical...

Like sharks, to the scent of blood.

The Boxing ring was home to gamblers...

And transformed, into the office

of gangsters at the same time...

All orders came from outside the ring,

even who won and lost.

They had an Army at their command

called "Siyan"

Switch this with his...

You really watch out for yourself, Yuan...

Seriously Yuan, you and me are

practically family.

You"ve got to help me out with this.

Other than Timuk, Only Chinese

can be family.

I would like to eat some shark!

Fixed fights, poisoning, and murder...

All truths easily overlooked.

Because of all this, the fight didn"t

always end in the ring.

We had no idea how it would end.

As for us, we had no idea how it would end.

Hey!

If we get caught, we could

get kicked out of the camp.

What Pao, I thought you weren"t

afraid of anything.

You don"t have to come if your too scared!

- Oh, here I am, Samoh is the name.

- My father was a fisherman like his father,

and grandfather before him.

- They said that as I got bigger

I could go anywhere I wanted.

- Dad Wanted me to be a fighter more

than a gambler.

So one day when I was a bit older,

he let me try some betting.

- There"s nothing left.

L"m not a chicken!

This is Biak

And was born in a whorehouse!

It may be true that Biak couldn"t spell

his name right...

But he sure could punch and kick.

Go.

- The three of us were born and raised

in the same place.

- We all dreamed of being Muay Thai Boxers.

- Because we thought that was the only

thing that could get us out of here.

Which one of you is the toughest!

- Whats your problem?

12 Baht.

Winner takes all.

- He is bigger.

- That doesn"t mean anything,

if he can"t hit you.

Watch yourself in there.

Biak, come here, l"ll give you

the blessing.

Sa-too... Sa-too... Sa-too...

Hey Samoh, looks like your losing.

Shut the hell up...

If Biak wins, you"ll have pay us double.

If Biak Loses l"ll make you eat Sh*t!

- BIAK!

There were the three of us.

Pao, had the look of a Muay Thai Boxer.

Thats because he was the younger

brother of a boxer.

Grengsuk S. Chaiya

He is also the son of Tiew Chaiya.

A famous muay thai teacher.

Biak, you take a bit more, and then you will

have him trapped, get him with the Elbow.

Defend and attack.

- Go!

- Go Biak, go!

Get him!

Biak, get over here.

Go!

Pao! Get over here!

I didn"t teach you Muay Thai so you could

go start fights with others.

Thats when we learned that Kru Tiew

was fierce.

But we also learned that he did those things

to make us strong as well.

It"s probably because...

He didn"t want Muay Chaiya to be

lost with him... he said that once.

Chaiya is fighting and strategy,

at the same time...

Going over offence and defense internally.

Remember that crouching does not mean

its over.

Just because the tiger is crouching,

does not mean it has given up.

Good, Pao!

The hardest thing was sitting on the Groke.

We had to smear powder all over our faces...

And had to defend against all attacks.

Kru Tiew would say over and over

"Don"t let anything take

the powder off your face!"

Our hearts belonged to Muay Thai Chaiya.

The sunset is beautiful, look at that red.

- Oh yeah?

But the end of our happiness came

much faster than we ever thought.

We had no idea that...

the arrival of Kru Tep that day,

Was the sign of the end of Kru Tiew,

and this Muay Chaiya camp.

In order to escape some shady loan debts

he started this Camp...

He and Greng had to go to Bangkok

to work off the debt.

They want you to have all the anemities

of a real Muay Thai trainer.

You should really come to Bangkok...

You will get what you need,

and pay off your debts too.

Good luck.

Dad, let me come with you!

No, stay here with your mom,

then you can focus on your training more.

Let"s go, Greng.

I love you all like my brother.

All of you the same as Pao.

Our grief did not end that day either.

- Dad!

- (Police officer) I understand

that last night...

...if you die now, who will I live with!

...he went into the city to bet on the fight.

- Yes, but he didn"t have money to pay.

- I see.

Have you seen Samoh?

Over there, I saw him going up that way.

Hey Samoh! Don"t do anything stupid!

You bastards! Don"t try to stop me!

Be careful!

- Samoh take my hand!

My Leg!

Biak! Pao!

Let me go! Or we will all die!

L"m not letting go! If you go, I go too!

I can"t hold on!

We never mixed our blood together,

like in those movies.

But, that event reinforced my belief that...

...the three of us would never

abandon each other.

Come on Samoh!

After the Muay Chaiya camp closed.

Biak and Pao...

...went on to become Boxers following

what we were taught.

And that was enough to get us

by through our days.

A letter from Geng!

Open it!

- Quick!

- Quick!

Read it!

"This letter is for the people

at the camp that wrote me."

"I am training for a fight

at Rajadanerm stadium."

Rajadanerm!

"Dad is good, how are you?"

"And how about Biak, and Samoh?"

- Good

"Just focus on training Muay Chaiya."

"You remember what I taught you right?"

"A good fighter doesn"t just use

his punches and kicks."

"If you love it as much as you tell me."

"Then you have to practice hard."

"Good fighters have to use their heads..."

"...and their hearts."

Are the sales going well?

Sure are.

Who"s that?

What a knockout!

Hey Nurse!

Could you bring your heart

and give it to me?

Shure...

But wouldn"t better if you took the dog

out of your mouth first?

Hey Pao.

Her name is Siprai

She"s the doctors daughter

Really?

Yep.

Yeah... yeah...

What is it?

How about this... You scrub my undies

and l"ll tell ya a little bit...

- Samoh you...

- If you want to know details...

then you"ve got to wash it all.

And I will lay it all out.

You know you don"t have to do it at all...

OK, give it here then

Hey!

What"s your name?

It"s Pao.

What"s yours?

Siprai.

Ok, so now we know eachother...

Go tell your friend not to bother

us anymore.

L"m going now.

- Hey sweet thing, hold on a sec...

- You in a hurry?

Let go!

Hey! Get your hands off her!

Ouch!

That hurts.

Sit still! Is this what you wanted?

Are you trying to make it worse?

Hows that? You think your

some kinda action hero?

Just go "rush into battle alone".

"Not afraid to die".

Well if the "Damsel in distress" is worth it,

then...

Whatever...

What?

Hey Biak! Check out my new trick!

What is it?

I will show you, listen...

Biak, Pao!

You guys need to go get something at

the temple!

I have called you guys here today,

...because were going to have a Muay Thai

event here at the temple.

There is going to be a lot

of important people here.

People from all over Korat.

These guys have done this before...
