The gift of God

The Muay Thai Looksaykongdin Gym training camp is located in the Min Buri district, north of Bangkok, one of the largest Muslim districts just outside the city. This is a difficult area, with few possibilities, the peculiarity of this training camp is that the coach and owner, Mr. Noparit Yoohanngo is also the father of almost every athlete who trains here and each of them boasts champion titles. His family consists in 16 children and 11 grandchildren.But Noparit reveals to me that Boxing was just a vehicle thanks to which his children were in a safe place,he says they are his gift of God.
