Photo: Then and now

A portrait of Lahwee standing with a photo of himself as a young Muay Thai boxer. At 64 years of age, he still instructed part-time in Bangkok, when he was not driving a cab. Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" due to the use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes (eight points of contact). The fighting art has been around over a thousand years, and Muay Thai practitioners typically begin training at a very young age. Photo: Ronn Aldaman
