Regarding etiquette, Muay Thai is distinctive out of all fighting sports. This is due to several behaviour rules, such as the belief that the more aggressive the fighter looks, the more he loses, and, therefore, everyone tries to look calm. The fights are points-based and often pick up the pace around third or fourth round.
Every year the fights take place at Sanam Luang Park in Bangkok on Queen's birthday (August 12). Keep in mind that even young children can participate, since the professional career of the fighters most often starts at six years old.
