    CK notices Thais smile when they get beaten up. He saw it when Yod fought Chicky in the first rd. He saw it when Joanna leg kicked the Thai girl. He saw it when Malaipet fought Yod. He saw it when naruepole got beaten up by Petrosyan.

    ^ A visual example. Why did the thai girl smile everytime she got hit?

    As much as I love Muay Thai, CK currently breathes more life into this subforum than anyone else (not counting Anorak's and Coca's knowledgeable post of course) :icon_twis

    I agree. CK isnt the antagonistic prick who ruins discussions like Brock was, he is more like the subforum's trickster-jester figure.

    I met my wife, while training in Muay Thai in Thailand years ago. I've been back several times since. I certainly cannot claim I know for sure why Thais smile when getting hit, but I do know they seem to smile during many, what I would consider inappropriate times based on my culture. I don't mean that in an insulting way, but in a respectful way. It may be like a nervous laugh or I believe Thais are taught to make the best of any situation or due to being taught not to demonstrate bad feelings in a bad situation. This is just based on my limited understanding of their culture. I have to say, if most Thais are like my wife, they are some serious amazing people, that are just happy to be happy. They call it "THE LAND OF THE SMILE" FOR A REASON :))

    Thai (but many fighters in general) smile to show they're not hurt. Muay Thai is about showing strength and dominance. You have to look strong in the ring.

    Fighters can also smile to show admiration/respect for a technique landed by the opponent.

    He's not acting like a d-bag but he's definitely trolling and it's annoying.

    I smile when I get hit not cuz I'm happy more like when someone suprises you and your like "why did I let that silly thing surprise me?"
