    Instead of taking my gloves to practice, i took my camera bag. the following are all from this afternoon.

    [​IMG]
    everyday before training begins the thai trainers, and fighters who live at the gym, and who are regulars participate in a game of takro. here a fighter tosses the ball to his teammate to serve.

    [​IMG]
    Here one of the fighters spikes the ball over the net.

    [​IMG]
    as you can see here, the other team is very careful about where they are standing when you spike the ball.

    [​IMG]
    or are they? while attempting to block the spike the opponent takes a foot to the head.

    [​IMG]
    these two were losing very badly, and finally made a point and celebrated.

    [​IMG]
    warm ups begin with jumping on these large truck tires, its a great calf workout!

    [​IMG]
    one of the french fighters wraps his hands before beginning his training.

    [​IMG]
    assorted pads and gloves are laid out on a picnic table daily for fighters to choose from (bring your own, most of them suck)

    [​IMG]
    a french fighter lifts weights along side a thai child. cute.

    [​IMG]
    a thai fighter grins while dodging frenchies kick. yes its a grin.

    [​IMG]
    typical shorts of the thai kick boxer . . . and typical shoes too.

    [​IMG]
    one of the trainers wraps his hands in preparation for his training sessions.

    [​IMG]
    a boxer (not kick boxer) rests, holding the bag for his partner while he punches.

    [​IMG]
    boxer trains on the pads, his workout will get tougher over the next three weeks while he prepares for his upcoming fight in the Philippines.

    couple more serves for the road below.

    do these look faded in color to you? they do on my monitor in firefox, but not in cs2, in fact i've got peaked saturation in reds on the pic with all the gloves . . . anyone else?

    I am not on a calibrated monitor, so I don't know about the colors. The pictures are just awesome though! Muay Thai is such a great sport, and you did well capturing it! :)

    I love these. I don't know what you want the color to look like but i like them the way they look on my screen.

    my favorite is number one.

    I really like that these guys all look like they are really having fun even though they are working.

    wow i really like the photos 11 ,13 and 14, but i'm really confused with the first picture becuase i can see the ball in the reflection but i can't see it where it is supposed to be not in the reflection if that makes any sense, am i crazy? oh yeah the colours look good to me.

    thanks, and in the first one thats the actual ball, not the reflection of it if that answers your question.

    Cool series :) I always wanted to do karate or Tae Kwon-Do

    They look great to me. but i'm using safari.

    This is probably because of the pictures being edited in adobe RGB. Most browsers now support only srgb color space, Safari for the mac is able to display the embedded colorspace, whether it be srgb adobe rgb or the newer photo rgb space. firefox 3 is supposed to have this support as well.

    Wow, what an interesting series!!! Amazing how high the guy in #2 can jump/kick. Love the low pov in 3 and 4, and the reflections in the mirrors. The prep and training shots are very interesting too, to see how they dress, the basic nature of the equipment etc. Love the colours of the equipment of the table. The whole thread is really well done.

    wow, wow. Great series. The colours do look a little bit (but just a tad) faded, but I'm also using Firefox, so maybe that's it.
    Love the action in the one with the big trainer in red and the guy boxing.
    I can't help but look for you in the mirror shots (I don't like seeing the photog in those); you are the one in black in the last shots? If not, you did a great disappearing act!
