Thai Boxing in Bangkok

This is from my last day of Muy Thai boxing class. The other guy is one of the instructors. Each time he hit the bags, he emitted a horribly smeltered sneeze/grunt/bark. In the gym hierarchy, you quickly realize that you can grunt only if you've been there a while. Beginners don't grunt–they dont' make any noise. There was Swiss guy named Mirko in the class. He pissed me off. He says, "let's spar". OK, but I'm a beginner so let's go slow. OK. Then he proceeded to go full speed, without any pads, all the while saying in a rough Germanic accent, "Relax, man, you're too tense." Go back to Switzerland, Mirko!
