BANGKOK — After an uncomfortable encounter with a stranger on the BTS, one of the nation’s top female mixed martial artists on Wednesday recommended that Thai women take up Brazilian jiu-jitsu for self-defense.

 Does she ....keep quiet?  She dealt with it in her way...  perhaps, her intention was more self-promotion...

Or to get attention to the fact that some man don't know how to behave and put women in awkward positions.

I've seen tens-of-thousands of "thai gal" walking down MRT and BTS stairs, but I have never seen evidence of it being "too strenuous" for them. What are you seeing that I don't see? I'm guessing you don't see anything of the sort.

The woman has no teeth, is this a martial arts thing? I mean I got one capped tooth knocked out but I only did martial arts for a year or two. Anyway, that, in itself, should be sufficient to discourage unwanted advances. Yeah, wear a mouthguard. Good advice for guys as well, nobody's gonna mess with you if you're wearing a mouthguard, or at least they'll think twice.

This seems an untrue observation. There are lots of Thai females at gyms, fitness circuits and sports clubs. They are notable on the fitness circuit around Big Buddha in Pratumnak.
