Today’s athletes face a bigger problem then injuries there personal lives we hold a certain standard for our sports heroes that they can do no wrong live wholesome lives. With the media of today professional athletes face the camera all day long looking at today events we hope Allen Iverson will return to basketball. Not a former shell of himself but new and improved with the, current allegation of alcohol abuse and gambling are unclear since we have not heard from Iverson yet. So we have to wait excess can be the ruins of life. Enjoying a vice we all commonly do from time to time just to get a relief we don’t know what is on his shoulders keeping his career in tact for longevity, financial future. We can only wish him well on his journey through life. Read the rest of this entry »

Jo Henday, Sister:
I should be proud of you but I’m not. Not of a single shot.
Your first goal came off my stick, remember? The puck was pinned to the boards by a couple pairs of skates and there were five of us from both teams working at it in a clatter of wood. Some kid kept cross-checking me in the back – no penalty – but I fought my way through the press of jerseys and dug the puck out. I flung it towards the net because I knew you were there.

I have begun researching the art of Muay Thai boxing. The reason being is because I have been given the opportunity to create a mural on the wall of a soon-to-be Muay Thai boxing studio. The Remix Project has given me the opportunity to help with the creation of this mural.
So far, I have learned a few basics in regards to the history and importance of Muay Thai boxing. Muay Thai was born in Thailand. The practice of this fighting technique dates way back to a more primal time. It was originally formed as a technique that the people of Thailand could use to defend themselves from neighbouring countries that had the intentions of invasion. One of the most unique factors is that the techniques of Muay Thai have always been passed on orally rather than through documentation or written instruction. There are few written records.
Muay Thai is a large part of Thai culture. Even in times of peace, the military leaders encouraged the practice of these self-defense techniques. In this cultural environment many people choose to make a living through Muay Thai competitively. In some cases of poverty it is some people’s last resort of survival.
Like any sport, over time it has evolved and become a little safer and more commercial. Still, Muay Thai boxing is a part of the Thai culture that continues to affect the whole world.
I am excited to post more details on this subject as my knowledge and experience increases.
