Video Journal Update #79

A few of my thoughts today, taking a break from my run. I talk about the training cycle, and adjustments I’m making, as well as the time off post-fight hangover. I’m fighting again on Friday.

Padwork with Daeng

from Monday morning – first full day back at training, on the cusp of a fight the previous Friday and getting back to the start again for a fight the coming Friday.

I love how Daeng holds pads.  His pace is a little slower than Den’s but he somehow accomplishes enough pressure and constant movement to get you tired without pushing beyond a nice balance where you can land with clean technique and power.  He’s probably the most fight-oriented trainer at the gym.  He thinks about the strengths and weaknesses evidenced in my last fight and comes up with a plan on how to work through it.  I love this about him.  He’s also one of few trainers who will tell you when you’ve done something well, whereas all of them will take advantage of openings when you do something poorly.  Daeng is working with me a lot on knees for a couple months now and he’s the only trainer I work with who holds for low kicks.  I like the patterns he devises with them – they feel like a fight.

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
