Shocking footage has emerged of child monks boxing each other in the head a bare-knuckle fight club style brawl.
A clip shot in the grounds of a temple shows the children – training for Buddhist roles – in red robes and shaven heads repeatedly hit and kick each other.
A group of older monks stand around laughing with one of them ‘refereeing’ the fight by holding pulling them apart then letting them loose on each other.
Khun Kampon shot the footage in Udon Thani, northern Thailand.
He said: ”They’re starting fight club when they’re young. It’s a good way to make them tough.”
