This is the 4th episode of Muay Thai Bones Podcast, filmed as Kevin and I are driving back from my 238th fight, in Trat. The Muay Thai Bones podcast is a sharing of how Kevin and I usually talk on our long drives across Thailand, inviting you to travel along with us! I hope you enjoy.

Muay Thai Bones Podcast – episode 4

We had a few technical difficulties with the camera overheating so this we supplemented with discussion from the coach in areas we lost the original conversation. So this one is part from the road, and part from when we got home. These are awesome topics and challenges I’m facing as a fighter and as a person.

Things covered:

  1. Festival Fights in Thailand and how repetition creates great skill.
  2. I’ve added sodium as a supplement to my 1+1 Keto dietary approach, and been having great results.
  3. What it has been like, and what it means to have had Dieselnoi in the gym.
  4. The relationship between Fear & Shame in fighting, and how it relates to Muay Thai in Thailand.
  5. Moving into becoming a Switching fighter, finding one’s way between stances.

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
