On 21 July 2013, Isara and his former partner, Jongjit had a brawl during the change of ends of the men's doubles finals at the 2013 Canadian Open Grand Prix. Jongjit, who was partnered with Nipitphon Puangpuapech, met Isara and his new partner, Pakkawat Vilailak in the finals. The former partners who had unresolved issues with each other prior to the match started abusing each other vocally during the first game. This led Isara to begin chasing down Jongit across the arena. As an act of self-defense while running away from Isara, Jongit swung his badminton racquet to the side of Isara's head causing his right ear to bleed and require stitches. Isara eventually caught up with Jongit, who fell to the floor on the adjacent court, and began hitting, punching and kicking him. The two were eventually broken up by Isara's partner and their coach. As a result, both players received a sanction from the Badminton World Federation and from the Badminton Association of Thailand. Isara, the more physically abusive one among the two, was banned for 2 years from participating in any international tournaments. Jongjit, who provoked Isara during the match, was banned for 3 months. In addition, Isara and Vilailak received a black card during the event meaning disqualification from the tournament and the tournament victory was awarded to Jongjit and Puangpuapech.[5][6][7]
