one of my favorite fighting documentaries. its in HQ for those who are wondering.
If you're a devotee of martial arts then you'll know all about Muay Thai, the Thai fighting style that goes beyond fists and feet and employs knees and elbows as offensive weapons. Mind you, if your involvement with martial arts extends only to its incorporation into action cinema, you'll also know about Muay Thai, it being the fighting style of the genre's newest star, Tony Jaa.
I have no doubt that the release of Muay Thai themed Ring Girls has been timed to coincide and cash in on the release of Jaa's Warrior King, the hotly anticipated follow-up to the spectacular Ong Bak. I can't think of any other good reason for putting it out, at least onto the UK market. Shot on video, released straight to video and DVD, it's the sort of American production that is clearly targeted at an insecure portion of the domestic audience who will only watch a foreign sport if it is being done by Americans, and even then only if they WIN.
