Above are two video answers for Lisa of The Glowing Edge female boxing blog, part of her introduction and interview of me: Widening the Doors for Fighting Women: Interview with Sylvie von Duuglas-Ittu . It was a real pleasure to answer her great questions (you can see the answers by clicking on the link above):

 

Share a bit about your fight sport beginnings.

What sort of responses did you encounter when you first started training?

How did you decide to train in Thailand and what new dreams have you found since going?

What does your daily routine look like?

How are you different from the other fighters in Thailand?

Do you feel accepted and welcomed into the fight circuit? Have you encountered prejudices as a woman or an outsider?

Talk to us some about how what you’re doing now relates to life. Are there “transferable principles”?

Any advice for people interested in following in your footsteps? Or for people thinking of taking up a fight sport?

If you haven’t been to Lisa’s blog I highly recommend you check it out and bookmark it in some way.  It’s a great hub for female boxing and fighting blogging (check out the links on the right hand side to other blogs and sources; really good stuff) and Lisa is a talented writer with a great voice, producing really inspiring reflections and analyses of her own training that can resonate for any person training and/or fighting.

Female FightersFightingMuay Thai

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
