I just noticed that I’ve written over 400 blog posts on Muay Thai and my experience of it, so far. It’s like one of those things, you just keep at it and you get somewhere. Here is a clickable list of the most read posts in the last 3 months in case you missed something you’d like to read. I’d love to hear from others things that they would like for me to blog about, in my experience. It could be anything from aspects of Thai and Muay Thai culture, to details of training and fighting or experiences specific to being a woman in male spaces or environments, or something I completely haven’t thought of. If there are things you think would make great subject matter and that aren’t commonly covered by others let me know. On that count, if you have suggestions of what would be interesting to make video or short film on and post on my YouTube channel, that too would be awesome to hear. The whole point of this blog is to give others a window into a world they might not easily have access too, as I’ve been fortunate enough to train and fight in Thailand for all this time, and maybe to also bring out things that are not often talked about in otherwise very male-oriented Muay Thai messaging on the Internet.
Thank you everyone for the support you given me in my fighting, and my blogging. It isn’t the easiest to sit down and write at length after a very long day at the gym, but it certainly is rewarding.
