Google Translate:

The past two weeks I have been in Thailand. It would be for vacation. But because I'm in America July 10 would actually fight and was still "fight ready." Am I just going by train. I asked Rosalie and Sakrungroj to arrange a fight.
Well last Friday was so far. I would against a strong lady from Bangkok. 50 Fights had already turned and she could stairs very well and she would do English boxing .....
Then came into the hall, I saw someone who looked a lot like her picture, but she looked more like a boy. And had made considerable sturdy legs. But it was her. I got a real Thai massage with preparation and ritual. Really super to agree.
Well the main fight was announced so I go in that ring. Here is the video of the fight ...... Unfortunately, I did not much satisfaction can get out but I did it again ff race had feeling. On to the next

Feels like a typical farang vs Thai mismatch. The video makes me sad, honestly, though surely nothing in Jorina's control. Once again, Thai refs know what they are doing. Re-watch the fight just looking at the ref from the :45 mark on. He's on it.

I find this difficult, if you get put in the ring with someone who obviously isn't on your skill-level, what options do you have?

 

I thought she did a good job, she mostly teeped. It's more about how frequent mismatches occur. I imagine though that for female fighters as big as Baars who fights up to 67 kg, it's hard to find Thais large enough, and skilled enough in Thailand. Perhaps why a fighter like Julie Kitchen seldom fought in Thailand, and when she did it was against a westerner. (Though I'm guessing, I don't know the weight class.)

Yeah, I feel like she did well too, I'm glad it was a Thai ref, like you said they really know what they're doing. I think it's even sadder when it's a mismatch and someone gets knocked out or injured. 

I think Julie's main fighting weight was 63kg, I don't know what the typical fight weight is for a Thai female but I'd assume that would be the top end of the scale. It could've been for other reasons though such as money.

Good to see a ref. doing a fine job. Unfortunately that it happend like this.
Since I also speak Dutch I tried to translate it without Google, but my English is not that well. This is what I made of it:

 

The past two weeks I have been in Thailand. It would be for vacation. But because I actually would fight in America on the 10th of July and was still "fight ready I just kept training. I asked Rosalie and Sakrungroj to arrange a fight.

When I entered the venue, I saw someone who looked a lot like her picture, but she looked more like a boy. And did have quite sturdy legs. But it was her. I got a real Thai preparation with massage and ritual. Really great to experience.

    • My gym in Japan teaches this 'straight up' kind of kick and I struggle with it through flexibility of body (and mind I guess).  They also encourage a 'snap' of the knee at the end in addition to the hip rotation.  Is that how the Thais are creating the final acceleration?   Thanks for the compilations and comparisons!
    • Hi, I am organizing Muay Thai fights in Kenya to build the sport here and give fighters more opportunities. Would I need to be affiliated with an international Muay Thai body to sanction all the fights? Which would be the best Muay Thai organisation to register with? I would appreciate any advice on this. Thank you  
    • Wow, what an amazing write-up- thanks. That should prove really useful. Tbh, both Lanna and Santai both sound like they have great aspects to them. I find I can usually get something useful from pretty much any gym, trainer or sparring partner, so I don't know whether it's best to stay at one gym for a longer time, or a week at a couple of good ones... How's training in Isaan? Would love to hear about that.

    • It is recommended that you should rest 1 month approximately, after having an eye surgery. I know that you are very very keen about your training. That's the best spirit in you. But at this time I recommend you to rest at least 1 month and if you fear that you may not forget Boxing, I recommend you 2 read books and blogs about Boxing. That'll help you keep in touch with Boxing.
    • Sparring was each day, it's part of the training, also each day you go the bagwork and the pads, so i don't know where you got that idea from.  You never go  without hiting the pads or having spar in the Thailand, unless you're in a really bad comercial gym, but the spar there is way different than in other countries, you develop technique there and go sparr without power, by either legs, hands or clinch, depending on the day . As for technique, they always correct you and try to teach it the correct way, they made a good amount of adjustments in my kicking techniques, sweeps and clinch while i was there, i didn't go into such small details because it would take a whole book to write about how much small things they see and try to work on that. Also i don't think you fully read what i wrote in the blogs, because i don't really remember now all the things i wrote, it was a long time ago, but i went on and re-read the first day i wrote, and it already said i did a lot of pads and clinch , knees and elbows , so i don't know where you got the idea that i didn't do pad work. 
    • Hey mate sorry for bumping old thread, im thinking bout going to Manop for 3 months in nov-dec-jan. Everything you described in your posts are what i'm looking for, but there was some things bothering me.   1) From what I read you barely got to spar? Sparring is a huge deal and important for me.. Why didn't you get to spar in the beginning? 2) You seem to spent ALOT of time hitting the bag, why didnt you get more pad-time in the beginning of your training? I really don't know your level and it was hard to tell from the fight 3) (Probably most important) How are they on instructions? Do they correct your technique? how much do they emphesise on that? Do they teach you proper form, sweeps, techniques, tricks, etc? cause from your posts it seemed like you were on your own pretty much the entire stay     Cheers!
    • I'll recommend Elite Sports, Yokkao and Fairtex.
