    The Thaiboxing brand is the cheapest and lowest quality of all of the Muay Thai shorts made in Thailand. They cost about $7usd when bought in Thailand.

    But, they will be fine for training. Just don't put them in the dryer.

    I have the exact same ones as the pair you posted from ebay. THey are cheap so dont expect them to be fabulous but they are fine. I've had mine over 2 months washing them once a week or so (hang dry) and theres no sign of wear. If you're only going to be using them for stand up, you cant go wrong for the price.

    if you just want cheap shorts that have quality. Seller is muaythaistuff..so you know its legit.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/KOMBAT-Muay-Tha...hZ011QQcategoryZ79754QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

    $10 US free shipping. They have heaps of those listings. I grabbed 2 for like $24 us including shipping which is pretty crazy

    Kombatgear is a good brand..and i have 2 of those shorts...but i sleep in them and don't train in them so not sure about how they'll hold up but im sure they'll be fine. Looks to be of quality.

    with thai shorts...its either Nylon or satin. nylon is always cheaper.

    just watched it. Do u live in thailand? nice music

    anyways, not too bad. Try to focus on technique..take everything really slowly...practice each thing individually..so practice the jab..then the cross...u can put them together later.

    kicks, its all in the hips and body. u gotta pivot also.

    I'm no expert though, not even close.

    practice makes perfect...good luck

    yea...1 month is like nothing. Takes time....even longer self-training. Atleast u've started young...you have a good head start.

    i have actually purchased many items from ganonthai on ebay. the thing is some of the trunks are better quality than the others. i recommend the camo type trunks that he sells.
