New Academic Year at MTMA

Posted on | September 2, 2013 | No Comments

Yesterday marked the beginning of a new academic year at Muay Thai Masters Academy’s Tottenham HQ.  We had a busy, high energy session where we could hardly hear the music over the sounds of the skipping ropes during the 5 round warm up.  We meditated on the topics of discipline and respect, and how we apply these ideals to our own lives; personally and within our learning of Muay Thai.

As it’s a new academic year, after some pads, Kru Clifford took the class through various interactive drills, revisiting and sharpening our mahd (punch), kao (knee) and dtae (kick) techniques, as well as some defences and counters, whilst Star went through some advanced techniques with Marcello and Jordan, two of our junior fighters, who are fighting at the Immortals show in Milton Keynes this weekend. Arjan Vinnie worked with some students in order to prepare them for their 3rd Kahn grading, which they will undertake later on this month.  Daniel Sam stopped by after spending some time training in Holland at Mike’s Gym, prior to going to Thailand to participate in Enfusion, which starts on the 7th of this month.

It was a great start of the academic year, and I hope it continues like this, with all trainers and students at MTMA giving their all to develop themselves and each other.  We all started to work off the barbeques and the rest of the summer break we all enjoyed, and now look forward to focusing on how we can develop ourselves and our Muay Thai.

We have a lot to look forward to this year.  As well as ongoing training and grading, we’ll be hosting a few interclubs (the first being on 13th October- Spurs permitting), hosting Boran workshops and seminars, as well as organising another trip to Thailand in March.

It’s never too late to come to any of our sessions, and revisiting the themes that we will meditate on this month, we all need to apply some discipline to identify how we can push that much further, and give ourselves and each other the respect we deserve.
