Anyone trained with the Woodenman? His legendary elbow fight was awesome! I know he trained some UFC/MMA fighters. I wanted to learn from a real muay thai fighter and this is the closest one but still a long drive. Is it worth the drive? How much would a private cost? I have a leg injury in my dorsal flex that slightly affects my balance should I still learn muay thai? Thanks.

I suppose its best to mail there and ask...  Both about costs and his recommendations about your injury.   After all, as your coach he should be aware of it.  Either train a little easier on you; or better still; learn you techniques compensating in a real fight...

If its worth to drive in?  If its a good teacher, yes. 

Look.  Compare if you were a rider. or a dancer.  Training mostly with your own local coach, and / or on your own.  Yet you would do almost whatever you could, to regularly meet up with a top notch trainer.  And get part of his top notch coaching lessons...  Yes, you would do this even if your local trainer WAS good. But to get influences from another one good trainer, is wise.  Even if in the second case, you wouldnt bother to do it every week, but be happy with clinics at least twice a year.

 

Ps.  As I understood it, our Sylvie had to drive in to her first sensei, Master K.  Apparently it was worth it.   🙂    I also presume, she trained also lotsa on her own at home. Physical training, shadow boxing, some mental training, such can be done even if you dont have access to a good bag nor pad holder.

 

ps2.  Use the driving time for something useful.  If nothing else, to hear on a good audio book....  If so done, the long driving hours wont be no waste of time.

Hey, hope this isn't too late. I've been training at Woodenman off and on for about two years now. They got a new location a few months ago and it's awesome. I would highly recommend checking it out but are actually quite a few authentic muay thai programs in the bay area. Where are you at? There may be closer options available.

    • February 1st will present the first all-female card at Lumpinee Stadium, it's GoSport (the promotion that introduced women to the ring there) and doesn't indicate whether all these fights are 5 rounds or if some are 3 rounds. It appears to all be Thai women and the Main Event is Sanaejan (the first female fight for the Lumpinee banner was Sanaejan vs Buakaw, but wasn't IN the stadium due to Covid restrictions, so this will be her first time actually in the Lumpinee ring) vs Somrasmee, who was "Rising Star of the Year" in Thailand's Northern region last year or the year before.
    • All I know is according to some studies, the ketogenic diet can help women lose weight while also improving blood sugar management. Additionally, when administered as a supplemental therapy in women with specific types of malignancies, it may be advantageous. So a good keto diet should consist of roughly 75% fat, 10%-30% protein, and no more than 5% or 20-50 grammes of carbohydrates per day. High-fat, low-carb foods such as eggs, meats, dairy, and low-carb vegetables, as well as sugar-free drinks, should be prioritized. Keep overly processed foods and harmful fats to a minimum.
    • Thakoon Pongsupha, the head of Sasiprapa Gym in Bangkok, is launching yet another TV channel for "Entertainment Muay Thai." In the announcement it reads that fighters who "entertain" in their fights, both foreign and Thai, will have continued working relationships with the promotion. The details have yet to be announced but Thakoon is partnering with his son, Arm (both pictured in the article). I don't know Arm's previous experience with anything to do with either Muay Thai or TV, but assume he grew up at the camp, which is outside Thakoon's home. And as for Thakoon, he has decades experience of running a successful fighter's gym and has worked with foreign fighters almost all that time. He has previously worked with promotions, notably other "entertainment" category promotions like MX Muay Thai, which has disappeared but was one of the earlier attempts at Muay Thai 3 rounds, wearing MMA gloves and focusing on "action."
