Muay Thai, like other popular sports, had a Golden Age. From around 1980 to 1995 there was an explosion of talent, money, and competition. Countless incredible fighters were produced, pushing each other beyond their limits in thrilling bouts.
Just when a new generation of Muay Thai fans in the West was getting acquainted with Namsaknoi, the bomb dropped: Namsaknoi was leaving his own camp for good after a year of its operation. As it stands now, Namsaknoi Muay Thai Club no longer exists, at least not in name.
