" We accept that love, security and happiness are basic human desires.
But what about fear, pain and the battle to survive,
do we need to feel these emotions as intensely?

In less than two years, the Bangkok fight club movement has grown from a few friends fighting on the street to professionally run events with large crowds. This rapid growth has been fuelled by the intense interest in an event unlike any other. Dozens of young men can, for the first time, express themselves through raw violence, without any repercussions. Driven on by the desire to inflict and receive pain, the fighters all say the same thing.

‘When we fight we feel alive’"
