  1. something similar happened to me when I came back to my gym in Italy after 3 months in Thailand. I was really, really improved, but my boxing worsened a little bit. so my trainer told they rouined me, they made me slow and with an opened stance.. however in a couple of weeks my boxing was good again plus all the other improvements so I felt great but he started to be possessive... "you are my creation" he proudly told me... then I had a fight and I lost.... "they ruined you in thailand!!!" he told... I changed gym...... I think that fighters give too many credits to trainers or gyms... who are the best fighters? Buakaw, Yodsaenklai, Floyd Mayweather, Ronda Rousey, not "buakaw because that trainer of por pramuk gym trained him everyday" or "Uncle Roger and Floyd Mayweather sr. that built up Floyd jr." etc... Muay Thai is an individual sport, everything that happens in the ring is your responsibility and/or your credit... You have to give respect and gratitude to your trainer but if you win a belt, the belt is yours.... plus, in the majority of cases you pay money for your training. If you train hard with all your trainers and give them respect, they will train you properly.. if they are in conflict is not your business.... =)
  2. http://s10.postimg.org/ps65viznt/20150720_140432.jpg This is how my home gym looks like :) Costs to making them are really low: I spent only 12€ for the 60 kg barbell plus his supports, around 15€ for the 35 kg heavy bag and around 9 € for the other 40 kg barbell and 15 kg dumbell together :) Everything is easy to make you just have to try and have fun and the result will be good! For some more pics visit the links below, they are wrote in italian but pics are enough to understand.. Concrete (cement) 25kg bags costs around 3€ each and you just have to add some water and flow into a wassel. Hope everyone enjoys :D https://muayblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/costruire-un-bilanciere/ https://muayblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/costruire-un-sacco-da-boxe/
  3. I know that Penake Sitnumnoi, lumpinee champion, ch7 champion, fighter of the year, lost his first 7 fights when he was a child and now he teachs at Evolve MMA in Singapore... I'm sure that when you'll win your first fight will be an huge satisfaction and a wave of confidence.. what if you do 100 or more fights... do you REALLY think you will lose ALL of them? Personally, I don't really like sport psychology, mental training strategies although they have scientific foundations. I'm sure that Muhammad Ali never studied how to be more confident. He just was Confident... He CHOSE to be confident... that's the beauty of sport, that's what make a champion... I think psychology ruins this kind of magic... if you stop fighting for a couple of losses then you have to live with yourself and your regrets forever... I guarantee that... Maybe you can think that you have lost the first 5 rounds of a longer, endless fight (your fighting career) and the positive thing is that you can decide how many rounds to do :) "You can lose without being defeated" is the best way to deal with a loss, but isn't a good way to head a fight... personally, in my last fights I was the underdog, I started the fight with that sentence in mind... as a result I kept walking forward, get punched and kicked, get knocked down, get up, keep walking forward, get kneed and elbowed etc.... I didn't really believe in my strikes... you have to want that win, not just not being defeated.. maybe you have to change your fighting style... at first I was a technical, strategichal fighter and won often, then I just wanted to show my heart and courage, but I had not muscle and strenght and lost often... you have to chose your style... if you want to be a technichal fighter then you have to be "cold" and really concentrated, if you want to be an aggressive fighter I think you have to be a bit sadistic too... " I try to catch them right on the tip of his nose, because I try to punch the bone into brain" said mike tyson.. you have to want him down and hit him as hard as you can, not just walking forward to show your heart! Good luck my friend! :)
  4. Thanks everyone for replies!! My boxing coach don't know anything about muay thai but he was a great boxing champ, soo technichal... he saw Giorgio Petrosyan fighting and told that when he wants to do a boxing action he becomes a perfect boxer, his elbows protect his body, legs are bent (or flexed, I don't know the right term lol) and he moves like a boxer... of course in k1/kickboxing you don't get kneed or elbowed as much as in Muay Thai but do you think he's right? So if you want to do a boxing action you have to change your style temporarily?
  5. Hi everyone. What do you think about dedicating a part of the training to western boxing? When I train on my own muay thai skills on the heavy bag I always split every type of shot. For example I do 20 minutes only roundhouse kicks, 20 minutes teeps, 20 minutes knees and elbows. I prefer to do like that due to a better focus on every single shot. I think Boxing is usually underrated and undertrained in muay thai. So do you think that making some boxing lessons would be good? Of course you can't do everything you do in a boxing fight like weaving, but I think punches would become better right?
  6. I prefer speed ropes because you can learn and invent so many tricks and are better for footwork. Heavy ones make your upper body works but double unders with a speed rope make it too :) I did this short video of me making some tricks a few months ago lol. https://youtu.be/9XmI3qBHPFk As you can see near the end of the video, in the clip where I wear a blue t-shirt, i'm using another speed rope that is so thin, sharp, light and soo fast: I don't raccomend that one because it's uncontrollable and really cuts you when you get hit. The other one is much better because it's both fast and a bit heavy
  7. Ok thank you very much. So i think I'll try to ask to do it for free, or just for a little discount on my training, just to make some experience. In fact I don't like certifications, I think the practice in thailand would be so much better, so if I stay there long time, when I'll come back home I can be a respected trainer. You think is ok like this? Will they allow me to hold pads?
  8. Ok thank you, so it's as I imagined. I would have some more curiosities about thai trainers: How they become trainers? Some were fighters at the same gym, some others were trainers at some other gyms. Do they have done a course? Where do these courses take places? I only know Master Toddy that organizes them. same question about thai krus, how they become teachers? In italy you just have to pay for a low level course that take place in the weekend for maybe 5-6 times, give an exam and magically you are a muay thai kru. I talked with a thai kru in italy, he told me that the way to become a kru in thailand is so much more difficult, he had to stay im the gym for more than a year I think, and fight at least 5 times for the gym and win 3, then there is the exam. (Something like that) what do you know about that?
  9. Hi everyone I'm Lollo, I'm 20 years old from Italy and I'm new on this forum. 2 years ago I stayied in thailand for 3 months, training in singpatong, Phuket. Now I'm planning to come back in thailand but phuket is too expensive so I will have to change gym and place. (I was thinking about going to pattaya, maybe at petchrungruang, wko or sitpholek). In my gym I always hold pads to other boxers. I really enjoy training other people and think I'm pretty good at. So is it possible to both training, fighting and holding pads, in a gym that doesn't know you, getting a discount on training? I would really enjoy it so I can stay there long time, and when I'll come back in italy I can make some money out of that. Hope my English is currect, thank you.
