“YAMADA NAGAMASA”, the young Samurai of Edo period, came to be a soldier in the Japanese volunteer regiment in Auothaya. He fought against a group of Japanese who disguised themselves as the Hongsawadee soldiers and beset Ayothaya with troubles led by “Kuroda Toranaga”. Yamada was critically injured and helped by a group of Thai warriors. They, later, vowed to be “bosom friends”.
Yamada was taken to the priest with a talisman and incantation who imparted the knowledge of Thai boxing and fencing to him. Later on, Yamada and his friends passed the fighting recruitment held to select the masterful combatants to be the Royal guards of King Naresuan the Great, the heroic king who declared the independence from Hongsawadee. Yamada and his friends fought bravely against the enemies, which could please the king very much. However, the never forgot to take revenge on Kuroda, who had defamed the Japanese. Finally, he could successfully kill Kuroda but in exchange for the life of his “friends”.
Being deeply grateful for the kindness of the Ayothaya king and the true friendship of the Siamese, the young Samurai was resolved that “This land was not my birthplace but where my soul would rest”.

I have to say, i love seeing these top Muay Thai fighters with their dirty sanchez mustaches. Yamada should be out in a few months according to Saenchai of 13 Coins Gym. The first time i met Saenchai at 13 Coins was just after he did some filming. He walked up to Brock and I and said “no foto, no foto”. My first reaction was “damn it! I want my novelty Saenchai photo”. Turns out that the makeup they applied to his forehead made him break out in a bad case of acne lol. But being the great guy he is, he joined us for some drinks at dinner and we ended up getting our happy snap with a tipsey saenchai!
