Such a strange question to be asking.

Do you need to be an expert to win fights in Thailand.   I have a decent jaw and not bad punches.   If anything kicks might need to be something I work on.   When fightin

Every forum has its trolls or paid agitators.

Nothing shows the Thai disdain for farangs more than a good fist fight...

 

You use your fists...and any number of Thais will punch, kick, and use objects to show their disapproval...

 

Best to try to avoid heated confrontations!

When you get into an argument and your opponent leaves,run for your life!

It is received wisdom on this forum that a falang will always loose to a thai in a fight. Why is that? One on one I feel like I could squish most locals here with my bare hands, so is it 'back up' that will make the difference, or am I missing something?

you got it right.

Unlike back home, where the objective of a dust up is to prove your manhood, the objective in Thai culture is to win the fight. 

 

If you're expecting a one-on-one "fair" fight, you're in the wrong culture.

 

Not unlike where I grew up...  The only acceptable reason for fighting was to protect myself or my loved ones from harm.  And if your only reason for fighting is self defense, picking up a 2x4 or enlisting 6 of my buddies was perfectly acceptable.  Duking it out mano a mano is for idiots under those circumstances.
