Got up at the regular time this morning to go train with Andy at the gym. He’s down from Hill Camp “for a limited time only,” so I sucked up losing my one day to sleep in. Glad I did because our padwork yesterday wasn’t my best and today more than made up for it. The biggest difference wasn’t technical, but rather feeling resolved that my weight, power and momentum was going to move FORWARD and hurt somebody, like a woman possessed. Think of it like gravity, moving toward the only other object in the ring.

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
