Muai Thai Event Saturday

Anyone going to this?

Thoughts on whether shows like this should be sanctioned?

Re: Muai Thai Event Saturday

Hi there, great topic!

Forgive my ignorance, but this is the thai "fighting" that's become rather popular of late (where kicks, knees, and elbows etc. are fair game), correct?

I know a few people who participate in Stratford and have heard a few more talk about it at the gym.  With fights being broadcast on television, the popularity of the sport seems to have risen tremendously. 

For myself, I find it very hard to understand the "why" behind this sport...but I'm trying to keep an open mind.  Can I ask, what is the status of such events in Stratford already?  Are the fights sanctioned now?  If not, how do they occur?

Mauy Thai is sanctioned in Ontario:

I think you are referring to UFC. Its only sanctioned in Alberta, Quebec. They are trying to get into Ontario. But Ontario is holding out:
