April Update- Thailand Trip & Daniel Sam at Glory 5

Posted on | April 3, 2013 | No Comments

Over the last year or so, everyone at Muay Thai Masters Academy has been raising money to sponsor two students to go to Thailand.  Richard and Rohat have been training at and fighting out of Muay Thai Masters Academy for a number of years, and were well on their way to becoming proficient Krus (teachers).  Instructors and students banded together to raise over £2000; from hosting interclubs to sky diving to abstaining from coffee, everyone contributed massively to get the boys to Bangkok. 

 

On 10th March, along with Arjan Vinnie, Vaz, Lionheart, Dion and Danielle, they flew to Bangkok for the World Muay Thai Championships.  There they trained with some of the greats: Kru Suphan Chabairam, Kru Mud Chaiyarat, and Grand Master Woody, as well as Krabi Krabong under Colonel Amnat Pooksrisuk and Muay Boran under Master Phosawat Saengsawang, and on 17th March, Nai Khanomtom Day, Richard, Rohat, Vaz and Lionheart received their Kru certificates and participated in the Wai Kru ceremony at Ayutthaya.

Following this, the gang went to Kaiphontip, a training camp on the north-western outskirts of Bangkok, to train for a week, pushing themselves with twice daily gruelling training sessions.  Although it was a quieter environment than the city, the quality of one to one training was amazing, and far more physical than the previous week.  

On a more local note, on 23rd March, at Daniel Sam fought Singh Jaideep at Glory 5 at the London Excl Centre.    He won by way of unanimous decision after 3 hard rounds, knocking Singh down in the first round.  Singh came back in the 2nd, but Daniel kept the pressure on, winning the 3rd round.
