Some Final Padwork with Den Before My 32nd Fight [vid] – Lanna Muay Thai

Due to fast turnover between my last few fights, I’ve had a slightly wonky training schedule and have been alternating which leg is out of commission for a few days after each fight night.  My left shin had a bump/bruise at the top of it from a cross-block with my last fight and Den won’t let me kick with it at all until my fight this Friday, so I’ve been doing a lot of right kicks.

These videos are three rounds (of five) from my last full training session this afternoon.  (Two are missing because Kevin wasn’t there for the first and had technical difficulties with recording the fifth.)  I’ve been feeling tired in padwork, but the good thing about having them recorded (and having Kevin sitting there watching and talking to me between rounds) is that I can see that my pace is higher than it feels.  And it’s good to get tired; Kaensak expresses padwork’s purpose as being to “make energy.”  I love that.

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
