Chiang Mai | Thailand: Schoolyard Takraw

Growing up, I pretty much played soccer year round, and it was my best sport, although I played basketball, baseball and a little football as well. Manali and I were walking today down the street passed a little schoolyard, and in a brilliant yet quick recollection, watching these kids we saw wish I could go back and do it all again. This time with the vigor and ability we saw in the kids.

There is a short video clip above that you have to watch, and it is a game called Takraw. The skill on display left us standing watching for a good 15 minutes, and probably had the kiddos thinking we were a bit nutty to be standing their video taping the action. And don’t get the impression that those scissor kicks happen once a game, its like every 2 minutes and one of these kids is doing a mid air kick. Amazing!
