Rooftop Boxing

Kru Peter Home was a Thai boxer for nearly ten years. His last three fights, at Lumpini no less, ended with KOs--only he was the one to go down. One elbow to the front teeth, one elbow to the head, and I think the last one was a plain old punch. At which point, he decided it was time for a career change.

He's now teaching Thai at American University Alumni but this month, he dons the gloves once more, from four to five, on AUA’s rooftop, to instruct a handful of students in the art of Muay Thai.

“Last week, so bad,” he commented last night, shaking his head. “But this week, ok.”
