A recently released short biographical movie tells the story of one of the most inspirational figures in martial arts, Chatri Sityodtong, who is also the founder of ONE Championship.
The movie tells Sityodtong’s life story, from overcoming extreme poverty during the Asian financial crisis in Thailand to amassing a fortune on Wall Street and eventually creating ONE Championship.
Sityodtong details early moments of his life, how he discovered martial arts and mentally powered himself through the roughest training he had ever experienced, surviving on a day-to-day basis while studying at Harvard University, and how he ultimately built a global sports media property in Asia.
With input from Sityodtong’s mother Michiyo Komatsu, his best college friend and colleague Saurabh Mittal and many martial artists whose lives Sityodtong changed along the way, the short film gives viewers a unique and interesting vantage point into Sityodtong’s life.
Ultimately, it tells the story of how Sityodtong turned suffering and failure, the lessons he learned while training in the ancient art of Muay Thai, into a catalyst to unleash his greatness and inspire others to do the same. It’s a tale of self-discovery, and how Sityodtong unlocked his capabilities by forging his willpower through adversity.
