The death of Thailand’s King

imageimageWent to a Muay Thai Live show tonight. It was really good. It went through the history of Muay Thai and different forms and things. Then they had two fights after.

What I thought was the beginning of the show had all the Muay Thai fighters come to the side of the arena. Then an announcer comes on. On this sad day will everyone please stand and join us for a moment of silence. I thought they were starting the history of Muay Thai honoring someone.

Instead they go on to say in honor of the King of Thailand who passed away today. They had a picture of him and played maybe their national anthem or another song.

I knew he was sick as I saw it on the news. King Bhumibol was the world’s longest-ranging monarch as he was King since he was 18 years old.
