A little story

On my first day at the Thai Boxing camp in Chaing Mai, we started by jogging around the neighbourhood a few times, through the gravel roads, mango groves and narrow alleys of Thailand’s second biggest city. It was 35 degrees, and I was badly out of shape after several weeks of sitting on beaches and drinking cheap rum. After twenty minutes or so of running, we got back to the camp compound, and started jumping rope, to keep our heart rates up.

 

Our instructor, Tae-Win, was a Thai man of about fifty years old, who had a gentle face, but his body appeared to be made of living gristle. He walked in front of us as we skipped.

 

“New guy!” he called to me “You pick today: five minute jump rope, or ten minute jump rope?”

We were only about twenty minutes into the practice and I could already feel my dehydrated brain rattling around in my head. I was kind of worried about what I had gotten myself into. I didn’t know if I could handle ten minutes more of jumping rope, so I replied “Five minutes!”

“Ok, everybody! Fifteen minute jump rope!”

 

I was confused, did I hear him wrong? I looked around, the other people in the class rolled their eyes at me.

 

“First lesson!” Tae-win called out “Easy path is hard, hard path easy”.

Seb Montaz

Seb Montaz | Adventure & Survival | Scoop.it

I grew up in the French Alps, and have spent most of my life playing and working in the mountains. Skiing, snowboarding and climbing as a child led me to qualify as a mountain guide & as a ski instructor – and allowed me to share my passion and enthusiasm for the mountains with my clients. Taking photos and filming clients developed my interest in film, and turned my passion for images into a full time obsession.
