Much has happened in the last weeks, some of it quite painful. This post is about my return. I had a chance to train with Karuhat for a few days following our attendance of Namkabuan’s Funeral in Nongki, Buriram. We drove back down to Pattaya and he stayed with us for a couple of days. I wanted to spar with him lightly, and even more just work with him and move. It’s been a while.

First Time Moving With Karuhat in Some Time

Above are my thoughts on the first day, so many things coming back to me after I’ve been sparring so much with Yodkhunpon, who has a very different style. I wanted to fold back in Karuhat’s way of reading.

I don’t want to mention it only in passing. If you don’t follow me on Facebook and missed the very sad news of Namkabuan’s passing from stage IV lung cancer here is a glimpse into the funeral ceremony though Kevin’s beautiful photos of a very painful day:

On my Patreon, free for everyone, are interviews I did with Namkabuan and his kru Arjan Pramod, in the last months of his life. I hope to be writing about what he meant to me, and what his death meant to me, soon. Thank you to everyone who donated to help him in his battle, and his family through our crowdfunding support.

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
