My 2018 Goals:

  • Fight in Thailand again! I plan of getting 2 fights when I head back in Jan/Feb.
  • Move down a weight class 125-130lbs; currently hovering around145-155lbs. I've added on Strength & Conditioning in my training regimen..but I think I gained muscle mass and now weigh more LOL. 
  • Fight back at home and enter a few more tournaments. My main goal is to enter for Muay Thai Canada's Provincial/National Championships (usually at the end of the year) and hope to be part of Team Canada. Always been a dream of mine! 
  • Also complete a 5-10KM marathon just because I've never done it before.

My goals are:

- end my losing streak

- have a fight every 2 months or so

- win at TBA tournament in Iowa and provincial/National tournament in Canada

- do more 10km races

- work on my strength and conditioning more

- go back to train/fight in Thailand again

I really really want to have a hard spar with someone I don't know (I can't get into a tournament and there's no chance for a proper fight, so I'll take what I can!) Lucy - depending on your weight etc and location, fancy meeting up for it?!

I'll settle for my training just going well without time out for health and injury (from other events) issues.

HAPPY 2018 FOLKS! Hope yours will be exciting and triumphant! 

An update on my goals: 

I just entered my first 10K Race weeks ago! And as a challenge, heh -- the race is the day after I come back from my Thailand/Philippines trip. I'm going to be jet-lagged as fuckkkkkkk! In a way, it forces me to run while I'm training for Muay Thai. I've been training in December; slowly but surely I'm am so stoked for that event! I'm already picturing myself [beat-up/exhausted/ugly, but relieved] finishing the race.

On top of this, about 3 more weeks till I head back to Thailand. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

Jealous of your upcoming trip!!! I hope you’ll get to fight at least once while you’re there?

 

I’m currently waiting for an opponent on a local show next month. Hopefully I can get my first non-tournament fight of 2018 on the books! :)

    • Hey! I posted about getting some help on what gym to visit!  First I was set on Sitjaopho but I missed a more structured training routine (Running, more pads etc) So it ended up to be either Manop or Singpatong. I picked Manop cause they seem to be very technical and puts alot of emphasis on very small details to get your technique perfect!  I messaged them on FB about prices and got a link to their website, where it said 10000 Baht / Month so 30000 Baht for my 3-month stay, which is more than alright for me. I phoned them today asking about accomodations and he said they had but I really could not understand the cost for it, so if anyone knows what accommodations go for at Manop that would be amazing! (For 3 months) and also if the price is only for the room or for room+training   Thanks in advance!
    • 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!
    • Adding in another connection between Greek Antiquity and the combat of Siam. Both were slave cultures, and the aim of warfare often consisted of the taking of slaves. This made the regard of an enemy quite different from that of the West where the aim was, often, the capture of (scarce) land with less regard for the enemy.  The knockout, in some sense, may reflect this underlogic of Western land grab warfare, where the killing of the enemy may be a primary goal, whereas capture and control may be aims of slave warfare cultures because the captured enemy became your wealth. More on this as it relates to Thailand:

    • I'll recommend Elite Sports, Yokkao and Fairtex.
    • If you're having problems seeing then it's time to get a Dr somehow and I'm glad you did. So now, unfortunately all you can do is wait. I have been in similar situations and understand how frustrating it is. Good luck.
    • Yes sur if you have a doctor. After I called the hospital (far from my place and no car) they told me to come. A friend of mine gently offer me to drive me there a day or two after this post. After an eye checking a young doctor/student told me that it's a vitreous detachment. I asked about boxe and he told me that I have to wait sometimes and after the vitreous will be totally detached I can practice normally but it's not clear when it will happen. He told me to go back to the hospital after two weeks if I still have this little black dot in my eye and this kind of "lighting bolt" when I move quick my eyes from left to right during night. I didn't yet but soon. He also told me to don't do too much sport (that was very vague) drink a lot of water and don't take hit on the face because in the process of the detachment it can still tear the retina. I hope it will be fixed soon.
