No, the organization doesn't really exist anymore. There's a new female-oriented promotion that is run by the Thai Fight people, but they've only had one event on the Queen's Birthday this year, up in the North of Thailand. 

 

That's too bad. I definitely had some issues with regard to how they thought female fighters should present themselves but it was great to see a promotion focusing on women and hosting all female cards.

I like that they featured so many women from so many different places, but I wish there'd been more Thai women throughout the process. They brought in more the second time around and at different weights, which was cool.

Do you know who the artist for the soundtrack is? I really like the music.

I somewhat recognize the voice but not enough to be able to help. Usually they use Carabao for everything. We call him "Thai Willie Nelson" but he's a bit more like Springsteen in terms of his working-class hero demographic.

That's too bad about Muay Thai Angels. The beauty-focused aspect was definitely quirky but they still put on a great show.

The new promotions that are taking its place (as in, all-female and big budget cards) are keeping with the beauty aspect. On the King's Birthday this year there was lots of makeup and two of the highlight fights were made of A) a woman who is a model and posed for Thai Playboy (there's no nudity in Thai Playboy), she has now had 2 fights; and B) an airline stewardess (the guidelines for Thai air hostesses are pretty similar to pageantry) whose number of fights I have no clue of. They both fought with determination, although the fights were messy. But selling the fights through "sexy" and "pretty" and all that was the main goal.

Thanks to Emma for finding these videos in the first place.

Here's the Air Hostess, Porsche (red): 

And the model, Puifai (red): 

Neither of the opponents for the "pretty" fights (in Thai they call models and women whose job it is to be pretty, "Pretties") look very experienced, which is reasonable because neither are the "pretties," but the caliber of fights is certainly not in line with what World Muay Thai Angels was trying to accomplish.

    • Now you don’t need to quarantine to enter Thailand looking to go by end of this year/ early next for 1 month. Can anyone help with gyms id like the gym to have -proper thai training with good trainers not all touristy but not super old school.  -Thai and western fighters so trainers can work with westerners but it’s not full of tourists -opportunity to fight at end of month  -accom in gym or very close  -dosnt need to be super clinch focused but good clinch as thats my weakness  -good trainers with good instruction for westerners  -preferably in Chang Mai as it’s the cheapest and on a budget -don’t need all fancy equipment and stuff  I like the look of santai Muay Thai, hongthong and boon lanna if anyone has experience with them? Thanks for anyone who can help. 
    • Question for Sylvie! When you made the transition to Southpaw….I’m assuming all of your orthodox combos and strikes had a natural flow to them because that was first for you. ..Im wondering how long it took to get a that natural flow in your Southpaw stance?  Also,  if you have any tips on the transition other constant practice in southpaw. Either way thank you for reading this. Have an amazing day!    - Mike C. 
    • I've read that internal and external martial artists are striving for the same goal, just in opposite directions. The external artists train the form and refine the technique, strengthening the body from the outside in. The internal martial artists trains the structure and refines the technique, strengthening the body from the inside. In that way, external arts would be working with colors and the internal artists would be working with line drawings. Both can make a complete picture but both together would be a powerful combination. I'm a stroke survivor that's always been into fitness. I've also had the unfortunate luck of being in a physical altercation while in my current condition. At the the time, i was able to perform optimally. Thankfully he was drunk and we weren't alone but i still had to defend myself initially. Every since then, I've been researching the most effective combination of martial arts to end fights and improve my balance. You ever meet me in real life, you'll learn that I'm a massive nerd. However, I'm also into fitness, so forming this theory has been very interesting. Bruce Lee's approach to the philosophy of the creation of Jeet kune Do was my place to start. However, his mother art was wingchun and he used methods from other systems to make a more comprehensive system, creating the foundation for MMA. The main 2 styles I found were Muay Thai and Yiquan.  I feel Muay Thai is excellent in the sense of a comprehensive striking system and Yiquan requires you to slow your movements down to fine tune the little balance issues i have. I understand i have no real fight experience and that has been an obstacle but i have experience in physical training and am ready to take advice and criticism

    • I can recommend you to visit Kst Muay Thai.. For the Time Being, you can learn the fundamentals of Muay Thai by yourself. That could be done though reading Blogs!! Like Muay Thai Citizen, Fight Supplies, Team Elite etc. But combat sports must be performed with another person. You can develop negative habits that are tough to break if you don't have someone to correct your form. Training with an instructor is by far the most effective way to learn.
    • Hello everybody =) I'm a muaythai researcher from Brazil. I'm looking for information about the best current muaythai trainers in Thailand, unfortunately I didn't find any consistent information.   Can someone help me?
    • I think what's more important than scent is how effective they actually are. In my experience once gloves smell bad, there's no going back. I'd love to find a solution that works.
    • Exceptional display of courage.  Stood up until the end.
    • Hey, I'm familiar with the struggles with partnering with beginners.  Once is a while is fine, but you don't get as much out of the class as you would with someone at your level.  Here are things I've done in the past: 1) ask the advanced women to come help me train (either in class of outside of class)  2) invite the women that are less advanced, but seem keen on learning, to train with me outside of class, say casually for just techniques (I specified no sparring).  Also give them opportunity to suggest what to work on during those times you train together.  The 2nd one was very hard initially for me, as it involved setting up this new group training.   Our gym had ladies' sparring before that ended in disasters, so I tried to steer us away from that.  Also talking to be ppl I don't know and managing multiple new relationships makes me very anxious and mentally exhausted. But that investment of energy pays dividends -  I started this a few years ago and I have a few women from there that developed a lot since and partners when me in class consistently.  We train together outside of class also.  We even met up in parks to train when the gym got shutdown during covid (but small groups outdoor gatherings were allowed).
