What My Walk to the Gym is Like

Prior to moving to Thailand, I lived in the Hudson Valley of New York.  Master K, Kaensak, Augie, Ray Velez (whether in NJ or NYC) and Nat Fuz were all over an hour commute away – in each direction – for what was usually 1-2 hours of training.  Clearly I was committed to (and used to) spending time in my car or on a train in order to get to training.

In Chiang Mai the gym is an approximately 6 minute walk from door to door.  It’s awesome.

Here is a video I made the other day of that exact commute, from my apartment door to the bench at the gym where I throw my bag down before going for a run.  I take this walk twice a day, so it’s definitely a large part of my experience here and will stay with me long into the rest of my life.

Lanna Muay 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
