S2E89: Birth of a Hero

On today’s show, we talked to Imran Harith, the Co-Founder and CEO of Discover Muay Thai. Inspired, after a trip to Thailand to learn the “Art of Eight Limbs”, he had big plans to use Muay Thai to uplift troubled and underprivileged teenage boys in Malaysia. He left his previous job to establish Discover Muay Thai - a four-month intensive Muay Thai program to rebuild the lives of these youths. Discover Muay Thai isn’t your typical Muay Thai gym. It goes beyond that - changing lives, one boy at a time.

Also, on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - M-league making history this season by appointing three female referees, the return of Faiz Subri - winner of the FIFA Puskas Award in 2016, and how political uncertainty is affecting the local sports landscape.
