  1. To many organisations and events with their own "worldtiles"... For now its isnt a olympic dicipline yet but it is recognised by the olympic comite and is making its way... http://fightland.vice.com/blog/muay-thai-is-granted-provisional-recognition-as-an-olympic-sport
  2. To all the fellow Muay Thai lovers with a big heart for Charity and good causes: please be so kind to give our page a like,share and /or donation. Still lots of cool items available and a give away to enter. This year(november) we head to Buriram to offer our help at the orphanage and support less benefitted gyms. Visit : www.facebook.com/muaythai4orphans Thank you
  3. Hi Inez, I always used Twins 14oz gloves and love them; good fit, protection and quality leather. If your Boosters loosen up on your whrist and the gloves are still good you might try an extra handwrap and support/make more solid so they fit better and stay in place. I only use Booster bag gloves at home for bag work and the fit good. Recently I bought a pair of Boon 14oz gloves in Thailand and I absolutely love them, maybe even better then the Twins. For training I use Boon now and pad work is a Twins 12oz.
  4. Hi you guys and girls, for the ones of you with a heart for good causes could you please give my project some likes and shares and if possible some support??? I started the project in 2015 cause I wanted to do sth back for all the things Thailand has given me ;sports, great holidays,awesome people, delicious food etc. It got me back on the good track when I was at less good times. I started a project to raise money in order to support a orphanage located in Lop Buri province Thailand. The place is called Baan Gerda (www.baangerda.org) and they take care of orphans who all are infected with HIV or AIDS. They make sure they are educated, get their meds in time and offer them a family to grow up in. Great place where they do an awesome job! To raise money I did some Muay Thai demonstration and shows at Thai events in Belgium,we gave a seminar with Germaine De Randemie, organised Thai food-evening at our local Thai Temple but main income is the sale of T-shirts,shorts and hoodies.(which we send worldwide :-) ;-) ) All help or ideas to take action and make a difference are welcome. The first year I got about 3000€ together , last year I was able to double the amount to 6200€ and this year I hope to have equal or more to give . My next visit to the orphanage is planned for october so we have still 3 months to raise the money. For the moment we're having a GIVE AWAY to thank all the people who supported us with great prices!!!! https://www.facebook.com/muaythai4orphans/ Please take time to visit our facebookpage check our pictures and hit the like button, share and if your able support us <3 <3 <3 Thanks for your time Nick

  8. Hi there, here in Belgium it's totally up to yourself to use or not use the khan grades in your gym. Somedo but it's a small group. the first 4 grades should be organised by the gym headcoach, 5th brown and 6th black are done only by the BKBMO(Belgian Kickboxing and Muaythai ,MMA Organisation) if you want to do this, you have to pay a small fee and will have to show your knowledge ,condition and technique. Test consists out questions about : history of muay thai,rules in fights, khan grades , allowed and forbidden techniques, clothing(shorts,mongkol,prajaed). After theorie is practical test , this consist out : warming up,technique,combinations,sparring,wai kru and cooling down.All of this takes between 2 or 3 hours dippending on how many are joining the test.When you complete all succesfully you will recieve certificate for brown khan and when finish black khan you recieve certificate and your black mongkol. To be able to join the test for black khan you need to have your brown for at least 1 year. The choice to do it is personal, but if you ever plan to open your own gym this isnt possible without you having black khan, its kinda proof and confirmation you know what you are doing and willbe teaching others .I think thats logically. I did my brown last year and in may this year I joined the test for black and succeeded.

  10. Hi Marnir, When you have chosen where you gonna go in Thailand find advice here about the gym, like :if you stay in Bangkok I should advice you to train in Luktupfah Gym. Very nice people who first check out your technique and then correct it. They help you with every technique you want to learn or improve. Gym is clean and in nice area, on wednesday you can go to MBK fight night with the crew. Let us know what area you will go ;-)
  11. Hi everybody, Just wanna let you know we started again with fundraising to support the HIV/AIDS infected orphans of http://www.baangerda.org/at Lop Buri Thailand.This year we had a great start !! Having some sponsors backing us up to get the project running is awesome,we even got support from our Belgian Kickboxing Muay Thai and MMA Organisation :-) Local actions are Muay Thai demonstrations on Thai events , a Big Gym BBQ and some initiation lessons for children. Global we raise funds by selling the T-shirts. Each T-shirt costs 15 € which goes fully to the orphanage,worldwide sending 5€ :smile: :smile: :smile: . This year we're going Thailand again in November. Visit to Baan Gerda Orphanage to hand over the raised funds is planned on 26th november leaving from Bangkok with private rented mini-van.

  12. Anyone got these or has an opinion on them? Didnt try them yet, but I'm definitly hoping they keep the regular models in production becuz I'm not a fan of how they look... But maybe they are great gloves. Anyone??? Grtzz Nick
  13. Hey Bakpao, welcome to the forum! finding a gym where there aren't to many people can be quiet difficuilt, I think you should rather try to find a gym where you feel welcome and and have good teachers . A gym where they help you bring your skills to the next level. I mean where you realy learn something,not just hold pads and let you kick and tell you "you good, you strong". I had very good feeling in Luktupfah in Bangkok, in Sit Thaharnaek in Chiang Mai, also did training in Penang 96 and Sitpholek but would recomend the first two. I've had the idea that november is pretty calm season. I'll be going back in november and head to Kanchanaburi to go train at Sitmonchai Gym. Hope you have a great holiday/training Nick
  14. I also just love Morlam , it gives me a lil feeling of holiday....when I hear it I dream away... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT3BfpheyIA people often think it's my wifes music but its mine ;-)
  15. Hi, everybody, my mate is currently in Phuket and is about to come back home and wants to buy new boxing gloves... He cant find any for less than 2000thb ,is this the normal price? Anybody know the best place to buy? I bought my gear in Bangkok (action zone) and got my Twins for 1400thb.... Thanks Nick
  16. Peoples passing true Antwerp,Belgium welcome to join a training @ the gym :banana: Contact for more info ;-)
  17. My goals for 2016 : # have at least 3 good,well prepared fights this year # keep training and teaching 5/7 days a week # go training @ Sitmonchai Gym :cool: :cool: # raise even amount or MORE then last year with my project :Muay Thai 4 Orphans # pass the exam for Black Mongkol
  18. Hi peeps, just got back home today from Thailand,pretty tired but want to share lil update on my project. I think for the short running time and limited resources we did pretty good :-) We were able to donate a amount of 3000€ to Baan Gerda Orphanage at Lop Buri to support the future of HIV/AIDS infected children. So happy with the result!!! Really want to thank EVERYBODY who was involved in anyway:shares,likes,donations, sponsoring in all kind of ways ,people giving us chances to give muay thai workshops or the monk who allowed us to organise a dinner on the temple ground,... to many to name realy appreciated!!! Couldnt have done it without them. So G'nite Nick
  19. Hi, Travelling soon to Thailand and have free time for training in Bangkok,anyone knows which gym has good clinch techniques cause I want to improve mine... Last year have been training in Luktupfah and Penang96 both good training but not really in to the better clinch work(or teaching it) Thanks ;-)
  20. Just short time on this place, and yesterday saw first member on a fight event :cool: "main fight " our gyms vs each other... Nice fight ,both fighters in good shape but fight stopped due to a minor cut on the eye...would be another story if in Thailand... Any way NICE to have met you 515 :-) :smile: See you next time. Nick
  21. Hey Micc, I think you worry to much and shouldnt hesitate, just do it! As long you dont go looking for wrong things ,nothing bad will happen. I even think you will get hooked on training/visiting Thailand and will go back :-) It's such a nice place to spend some time. I would advise you to try spending a weekend in Bangkok before travelling to Phuket. That way you might visit Chatuchak Market, maybe Khaosan and visit some Temple and watch some fights (Lumpinee /Radjadernem or for free at Channel 7 near Chatuchak). When going to Phuket just enjoy training , food, sea, etc Only "bad" experience I had when going for the first time was getting tricked by the guys in the airport who ask if you need a TAXI.... Dont agree , just go outsite and take a meter taxi, much cheaper and same comfort. I'm heading off to Thailand in abt 3 weeks and cant wait... Hope you have a great holiday. Nick
  22. What kind a gym are you training at? Big ,small? Many members? Are there child classes?Do they have many training day? Is there any gear for sale in the gym? Things like that... First I'll tell about the gym I train at: We are located on the outskirts of Antwerp,we train Thai boxing on monday,tuesday,thursday and friday evening, saturday at midday and also on tuesday and thursday morning with our adult group. On monday,wednesday and saturday we have kids training. On monday and wednesday we also have classic boxing class. We work with 2 head trainers and 5 or 6 fighters who also teach classes in the gym. Because we have various training hours we have about 300 members who train at the gym.We welcome all levels of experience,long or short stay. Average class consist of 20 advanced students and fighters and about 25 students in starter class. In our gym we have about 25 active fighters in various weight and class both woman and men and also kids who fight.Our gym is not small but when its a busy training it feels very crowded...its fully floor covered, we have a ring,4 heavybags,weight area. We also sell all fight gear at the gym; brands are : Booster,Twins,King,Queen. I think training at our gym isnt cheap but neither too expensive, because all student get appropriate guidance. Love to hear about your gym. Nick
  23. Hey guys andgirls Next month I'll be heading to Thailand for training/holiday/family visit. And I'll need to buy some new gloves. Untill now I used Twins Special, King and Booster. From these 3 brands my favorite is still Twins. I think they are the better quality of the 3 and have comfortable fit . The gloves should be for at least 5 day a week training, wich allso makes a difference. Whats your opinion on these brands? Anyone using Boon,Topking,Thaismai or other brands? Any advise on where to buy in Bangkok? I bought my last pair in our gym at Belgium and before that pair ,in the shop next to the former Lumpinee. I heard good things about Action Zone .
  24. Hey everybody, just want to tell you about my project that I started 5 months ago. I started it cause I feel like we(us here in the west living in comfort) often forget what an easy life we have here. We open the fridge and it has food inside,when we're sick we go to the doctor/hospital get treatment and make use of our healthcare,when we open the tap clean water comes out,... At a point is realised this and thought about the ones with less luck and wanted to do something for them.After some research I found Baan Gerda ,an orphanage in Lop Buri that takes care of children infected with HIV or AIDS. They take care of their education, get them the needed medication and offer them a way to a"normal" and happier life with less misery. As I'm just a simple working man and dont have loads of money I started generating money with a group of memebers of our gym giving Muay Thai "shows" and workshops at a Thai event in the city, we got payed a litlle and invested in making T-shirts to resell. This and some other initiatives found place;some fights @ an hip hop batlle, more workshops atThai markets and events across the country, even a Thai dinner @ at our local Thai Temple.My friend and coach at another gym organised a seminair with multiple World Champion Germaine de Randemie to support.It are all relative simple and cheap things to organise and raise some funds and at the same time share our loved sport :-) The first week of november I will travel to Thailand for our holiday and first day of arrival I will go and hand over the funds at Baan Gerda and make a litlle diffirence for them. If anybody has questions ,tips or things to share or even wants to support us feel free to contact me or leave a message on our page : www.facebook.com/muaythai4orphans you can take a look at www.baangerda.org to check them out :-) Thanks for reading Korp koon krab Nick
