Last year I had the pleasure of shooting a great night of Muay Thai in Las Vegas when WCK hosted a USA vs China night. When I heard it was happening again this year I had to try and get photo access again.
If you are not familiar with Muay Thai, it’sÂ a combat sport fromÂ Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with variousÂ clinchingÂ techniques. ItÂ uses fists, elbows, knees, shins, and feet in a ring similar to boxing or kickboxing. If you have watched any MMA, then you may be familiar with some of the techniques, because many of the fighters come from Muay Thai backgrounds. The difference however is that there is no “ground game” here. It’s not stop on the feet action, think “Shins to Chins” or “Knees to Nose”…
Oakland Coliseum is the last of the old style multi-purpose stadiums in the country used by both a pro football and baseball team, so check out all the work it to switch from the Oakland A’s playoff game on Saturday evening to be ready for the Raiders vs. Chargers game on Sunday night. That is why the game started at 8:30 and ended around midnight.
KISS isn’t wasting any time assembling their new arena football army! Just a month or so after announcing the formation of the team Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and the rest of the KISS crew are trying to recruit one of the biggest names in football to be their starting quarterback…Tim Tebow!
