  1. I love Muay Thai and i would love it if that became worldwide known sport, but at the same time i think if it would be known more rules would change 100%. Scoring would prob become same as in Kickboxing, balance wouldn't matter that much and i think overall Muay Thai would change...i mean even when you watch max muay thai, It's Muay Thai, but it's not the same . I wouldn't like Muay Thai to change even more and it def would , but i wouldn't want Muay Thai to disapear either... Plenty of things to think about to be honest.
  2. Yup. Try to read a book: Whole Body Barefoot: Transitioning Well to Minimal Footwear
  3. Flat feet are barefoot shoes are good and healthy for your foot, there are loads of ligaments, tendons and muscles in your foot and if you always use shoes with comfy fat soles the foot doesn't have 2work anymore. In a human biomechanical way you're in disadvantage because you're out of your alignment, you can develop loads of injuries just because your roots are bad, knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain can come just from having flat feet, that being said iv'e seen plenty of fighters with flat feet and plenty of Thai's, so it's not as big a deal for a fighter, just overall health. I also have flat feet but seem to be doing ok, have injuries tho. That's my 2cents .
  4. Because Muay Thai scoring is different. Hands are mostly used for adding up damage or finishing the fight with K.O while knees, elbows body kicks and sweeps are main scoring tactics. Depends on the style of the fighter. Punch doesn't score at all unless you clearly outbalance him, same with leg kick, it's a blow for damage, but you don't get points if you don't break their balance. There are styles who use heavy hands and leg kicks, but they don't try to win on points, they want a clear K.O . There are different styles.
  5. I do only bodyweight, i used to do weighted pulls ups and dips for power tho. I mean it's useful, but technique is most important. Iv'e seen guys with insane technique with almost 0 physical training beat really strong guys. But if you have both it's really useful. But first i would go with technique just because seems a better thing to have in a fight, either way is good tho.! Best of luck
  6. Driving bike can replace running, and weights are not that important, you'll have more time focus on developing technique more , reps reps reps.
  7. Well depens on gym. I was in Chiang Mai, we had 2runs each day. One is 7AM for 1hour before training and afternoon is 30min run before training. If you're fighting you're also doing 30min of jump rope, so it's like 1h 30min or 2hours of that each day 6times a week. That being said it's not a must, but you def get more out of training that way, you build cardio as much as mental toughness.
  8. Maybe for a beginner, but i see loads of mistakes and things i need to work on.
  9. I'll def try to go back to Thailand in 2020 for 3months to do more training. The quality of training was amazing, and such hard work in the gym is addictive for sure. I'll try and find Muay Thai gym in my country, but even if i do it's not going to be the same quality. But better than nothing, have to keep practicing the things i learned from Manop and Sagat!
  10. I'll def try to go back to Thailand in 2020 for 3months to do more training. The quality of training was amazing, and such hard work in the gym is addictive for sure.
  11. Short video i made of my private training with Sagat, 5mins out of 2private's. You can see the energy he brings while teaching, amazing.
  12. This is off topic, but this is prob the most beautiful temple i visited in Thailand . really magical place.
  13. I can't say im fully happy, i might be happy because i won, but looking on video i see so many mistakes, things i need to work on, but it was nice experience to feel . I just hoped fight would last a little longer, didn't expect to end so quickly, didn't even expect to win when entering the fight to be honest.
  14. Video of my first fight.Kinda sad that i couldn't do Wai Kru...I took one part to show clinch from a different angle, but quality is shit, but atleast it's not a blind spot as in the original video . Hope you guys like it. I know i made mistakes, but considering i trained only 3weeks muay thai for the first time, i'd say it wasn't reaal reaal bad. I'm with blue/red shorts btw.
  15. Ok so we did 2nd training today and again it was approx 40min. So even if i would join both sessions together it still would be 10mins short of 1 full session. In these 2days I learned loads of good things, but at the same time it makes me kinda sad because if you think about it you would get 2x the training and I might have learned 2x more things. He said it's shorter because he's liking the technique i have and he doesn't want me to forget but at the same time im like recording everything, so 180 mins instead of 80mins would have been much more experience to learn from as much in person and as much as you look back on the video. If i wouldn't have expected 1.3h in each session i might feel a little different, but now i just feel like he didn't give me the time that i paid for. Now as for training, the charisma he has is amazing. Always so energetic, feels like he loves to teach you, also he's really friendly, it's a second day we are having food together after training. I'd say as for training you can really feel how he's teaching you, but don't expect him to spend 90mins each session because you might feel a little robbed just because you expected him to give you 90mins of work and training and you got only half of it. Either way the things he taught me will be really useful for learning I just wish i got more, because now i kinda feel like i paid for 2days and simply got 1day split into 2. I know it's not his intent probably and these are just feelings and it's OK to feel like this.
  16. P.S by any chance anyone knows where i could buy my own Mongkol ? Would love to have my own next time i come to Thailand.
  17. Today had 1st training sesion , kinda sad that 1'3h workout lasted like 40minutes instead of hour and 30mins, i pay 3000 for 1hour and 30min and instead i get 40mins , but that was just covering the basics. I hope tomorrows workout lasts 1hour 30mins so i could learn more . The techniques he's using is simply amazing and really good, but what i love more than that is just hi's energy, he's so alive and happy and in such age ! Trully a legend.
  18. I have only 2days there so i won't really have enough time to compare both. Ubon mostly for temples, food, sculptures. So far i could say food is similar, but i've heard it's more similar to Vietnam food. I could post some pics if you would like.
  19. Will prob upload video once im back to my country. So after new year. I got 2videos so i want to join them together, to see all the best angles in the fight for hi's and my attacks. One vid from the oficial Chiang Mai stadium and other from the spectator seat. There are some blind spots as always, but 2angles are better than one, sorry for the wait .
  20. I feel good, just have pain on my right leg near the foot and achilles, prob because i hit knee couple of times, other than that i'm good. Here is the pic of me and other guy from the Manop's gym, he won 2round TKO. I'll upload vid when i get it.
  21. Rotavirus was the case for me. Also flu triggered asthma that's why i thought i wouldn't last for more than 2, was hard 2breathe.
  22. I went to fight, 1st round TKO. I'll upload video when they will send me.
  23. Made a short video about thoughts and so on, not my first language so sorry for some wrong spelling.
  24. I'll talk with the guy that's fighting today, i want hi's advice on this because he had similar experience in 1st fight. i don't want to cancel but at the same time i don't want like the trainers to look bad because if all people see me gass out in 2nd round they might think the trainers shouldn't let you fight in condition like this and so on, might not be good look for the gym name. difficult place to be in.
