Documentary photographer Jacob Klensin is currently in Thailand where he will spend the next month visiting and training at some of the country’s most respected and renowned Muay Thai gyms . It is there where he will meet the fighters, the coaches and immerse himself in the Muay Thai culture. This expedition is part of Jacob’s on-going passion project entitled “Figure of Fighting” which explores the multifaceted sport of MMA from the inside out.
When ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) learned of Jacob’s plans to go to Thailand to shoot for Figure of Fighting, we asked if he might like to also document the trip and talk about his experiences in a video blog. Thankfully he agreed.
In Jacob’s introduction vlog below he has arrived in Thailand and his first stop is at the Fairtex gym in Bangplee. He talks about the Figure of Fighting project and his plans while in Thailand. Jacob has been all over the U.S. shooting at many of the top gyms, but this is his first trip for the project that has taken him outside the country.
