Normally my second padwork for the day is at O. Meekhun, but on days that they aren’t training (away for fights, or whatever), I get Mod Ek to work with me. He’s my corner for some fights and it’s so much fun to do pads with him. He’s never been a set-pattern guy and because he’s cornered for me he’s very fight-minded and caters toward my style in padwork. So, that’s how we ended up doing such close range pads with the clinch built in.  I’ve never grabbed him around the waist like this before and you can see his amusement on his face. A few weeks ago I managed to trip him with a turn, which at the time he praised me for but then never let it happen again… so I’ve had to devise new tactics.

I was pretty exhausted during this padwork. It was after a lot of clinch and bagwork, but Mod Ek is so much fun. Good times.

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
