Punch out Sunday 殴り合い日曜日

This weekend Tomo was here. Since it was a while we met I spoiled him totally by making advanced breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Other than eating we went out drinking with friends, watched a movie – the usual. We also had coffee with my cousin, and he ordered the most absurd pastry ever. A cake, with three macarons on top.
今週末彼氏がここに来た。久しぶりに会えたから甘やかしてうまい朝ごはんや昼ごはん、晩御飯を作ってあげた。食べること意外、友達と飲んだり、映画を見たりして。いつものようにだった。私の従兄弟と喫茶店にも行った。かれはとても面白いクッキーを食べた。ケーキの上に、マカロンが三個あった。。。
On Sunday a friend from my kick boxing club invited me along to a Thaiboxing competition in town that she had managed to get tickets for. Thaiboxing is much more rough than kick boxing and they wear less protection gear as well as punch harder than us. But still, it was very fascinating to watch.
日曜日に私のクックボクシングクラブの友達にムエタイ勝負に誘ってもらった。ムエタイはクックボクシングよりもっとラフで選手はもっと強烈にパンチとキックする。でも、見るのは面白い。
Thai boxing also includes a lot of ritual stuff. The competitors walk around the ring, praying in every corner (or something) and during the fights they always play this traditional thai music. A bit odd, but compared to Sumo it’s nothing major.
ムエタイの試合にも儀式な行動が含めてある。選手はボクシングのリングを歩き回って、角で祈ってみたい。しかも、試合の間ずうっとこのタイ音楽が流れている。少しおかしいが,相撲と比べたら何でもないんだね。
I know for a fact that martial arts are really fun, challenging and also good workout for your body. Also, it’s a good excuse for hugging.
武道はとても面白くて、体にいい運動だと経験から知っている。しかも、誰かを抱きしめる理由にもうなりそうだね。。。
