Connecting Through the Web – Like-Minded Fighters in Muay Thai

I was just now writing a response on Facebook to a female fighter down in Phuket, Natasha Sky Sinbimuaythai, who shares views on and goals for Muay Thai that are very similar to mine.  I was congratulating her for a good fight last week and for her next fight, which is this coming week.  Natasha likes to fight with high frequency, just as I do.

I realized how wonderful it is to have a connection with Natasha online, to see her thoughts and experiences and be able to sympathize with them so strongly given that we are both of the same mind and motives but – other than online – completely isolated from other people doing the same thing.  She’s probably the only person at her gym who fights the way she does (meaning so often), just as I’m the only person at my gym who fights so frequently.  Knowing that there is another woman with the same motives and goals as mine isn’t necessary for anything, but it feels good nonetheless.  I don’t need water to be cold, but it sure is refreshing when it is.

You can find Natasha on Facebook, as well as on her new (and often updated) blog Muay Tash

Muay Thai

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
