    I really like seeing the women using their legs like this. This fight was cool.

    In my particular situation, some strange creepy little man wouldn’t take no for an answer and tried to touch my crotch. An elbow to the face was the least I could do for him in return.

    I am just glad my wonderful husband had the patience to show me some fight moves. We also have kick boxed in our old workout room, which gave me a better understanding of critical distance and using every part of your body as a weapon.

    So girls, the next time you get hit on by a pig, just remember that you don’t have to allow this to happen. Hopefully you won’t have to experience anything like this, but if you do, elbows and kicks can really work to your advantage. Then run for you life, heehee…

    Thanks for posting this John.

    Great fight, these women were every bit as good and tough as men and both fought honourably. That lady in black: what a hunter! Yet her opponent didn’t cave, not even after that first front kick that knocked her down and the punishment that followed, and that’s showing guts and fighting-spirit. This truly shows what women are capable of if they put their mind to it and I agree they’re excellent role-models for young girls. That being said I don’t think most women will ever be able to summon this kind of courage and zeal (not to mention expertise), most girls who take up thai-boxing are tomboys and usually have elevated testosterone-levels, at least compared to other women. Most of the women fighting in the ring came from rather tough upbringings (as do most men who fight professionally I presume) so this is not exactly an indication of what women in general can do but then again: only a tiny minority of men is actually brave and skillful enough to step into the ring and duke it out. Excellent match: just look at the loser’s face, complete disbelief that she lost and this shows she’s a real fighter, confident in her own abilities.

    Hey Sly, It was kind of funny hearing about my wife getting into an altercation with a guy while going out with the girls. Women can fight men but I’d rather see it as a surprise move than calling the guy out in the back ally… what can I say – my wife (Sly) does not take s@#t from no one! :)

    He Zara, These were some good fighters. Yep most women are not to this level but as you said… they are good role models!
