OK, I'm now back after my major abdominal surgery; I've started training and exercising again, and starting to lose the weight I've put on after three months of enforced do-nothingness (God, is it ever hard to start clawing back the ground you've lost!!!!)

Anyhoo, my ambition this year is to have an Interclub. Herein lies the problem: I know there are lots of them happening out there, but they don't seem to be advertised at all. Does anyone know of any Interclubs likely to be held sometime between now and end of August in the UK? I would prefer the south or southwest of England, or South Wales. I have been sending out feelers to every club that I can track down, asking them if they know of anything coming up, but does anyone here know of a suitable competition/event I could enter?

Thanks in advance!

And if anyone else out there has had to stop all exercise for months at a time, take heart, it does all come back...it's just absolutely knackering...

Interclub matches are generally sorted out by your gym, so you would need to ask them. If you don't have a gym you should join one, as you won't get matched without, as the host gym will need some independent assessment of your level etc

It is unlikely that you will see any August interclubs advertised this far in advance. We tend to find out at most about a month before they take place. If you are on Facebook, you can try to keep track of things by liking the pages of the gyms in your area as whoever holds an event normally begins by advertising on their page.

 

Speedy recovery and best of luck!

Thanks folks.

I know there is an interclub coming up At Some Point at a fairly close location, but don't know the date.

It's frustrating because I need to know well in advance because I work weird shifts and need a couple of months' notice (at least) to be able to make sure that I won't be working.

Apparently there are loads of interclubs on - but where!!! when!!!

I've contacted every gym within reasonable travelling opportunities and they have either

a) not replied

b) said they don't know of any interclubs

c) have said 'Oh there's loads on' but refuse to give me any info because I am not a member of their club

Oh well. Nuts to it all. I give up.

I'll just never get to see if I can hold my own in a decent spar against someone of roughly my height and weight etc.

Storm Gym in Luton do regular interclubs. Their next interclubs are 14th May, 16th July and 15th October. 

You should join a reputable club that knows this information. If your gym knows this information, but isn't putting you forward, then there is likely good reason for it.

I train with a friend (who is a professional trainer) because I prefer one-to-one training; I do go along to a club occasionally (where again I tend to go for one-to-one training) but they only know of one club that does interclubs and no-one knows when the next one will be. They are more than happy for me to compete - I was supposed to have done so before but one I couldn't make due to other commitments and the next one I was still recovering from major surgery.

I can't attend another club except for one-off occasions due to various reasons.

 

Thanks for the info though on clubs that do hold interclubs - I have been in contact!

    • Hey.  So I’m gonna do a Kyukoshin tournament.  If anyone doesn’t know the ruleset it’s no punches, elbows to the head and no clinching.  Points are only awarded for dropping someone or causing a visible reaction so Ning is going to be key.  I’m wondering if anyone here has done one?  It’s my first actual full contact fight, all the kicks knees (head and body) and punches and elbows to the body are full force.   They have a very unique style of throwing punches and there’s a lot of crowding so my plan is to take angles as much as possible and keep tagging the legs and body with kicks and throw a few headkicks if they’re there.  I’m southpaw too.  I want to move into Muay Thai but this seemed like a good a time as any to get some experience trading full power strikes with slightly less risk of getting slept.  Plus my coach encouraged me to do it so he thinks I’m ready for it.     Thanks for reading!

    • One of the simplest ways to increase the pace of your kicks is to use ankle weights. They also increase the potency of your kicks. The benefits of using ankle weights during Muay Thai training are minimal. You just do any kicking drill you choose while wearing the weights around your legs. Your kicking strength and quickness can be increased even by shadowboxing with ankle weights. Your legs get heavier as a result of the ankle weight, so you must use more force to move at your usual speed. When you remove the ankle weights after being accustomed to throwing kicks while carrying that extra weight, your kicks will go much more quickly.

    • Chalamdam (red) took a decision win and title belt against Pitakpetch (blue) today at Channel 7. Here are the highlights.  Pitakpetch's gym owner said after the fight the he will follow suit with several other gyms who have withdrawn their fighters from Giatpetch promotions due to bad judging. Comments on all the various shares seem to agree with the sentiment that this promoter is unfair.  What do you see? https://fb.watch/fD2_PfhFDE/
    • And re the blessing of the mongkol...  In lack of true thai monks, you can try to get a blessing from someoene else creditable. Some person you held in great estime, whom is also a person with a feeling for spirituality.  Your grandma or grandda if they are still alive, otherwise your momma or dad... Or someone else whom you have connection with and do trust.   ps.  You did made your mongkol yourself.  But the same advice for all whom did buy their mongkol in a common shop.   Such is my belief.
    • Thank you 🙂 I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters 😄😂💖 I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband 😉😄). I think I'll put the amulet on the rim right before the tail comes together. Or I'll wear it with a necklace and find another for the Mongkol.  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time 🤞🏻
    • I train at Pacific Ring Sports on Telegraph and 40th. What about you?
