Champions of Champions Elite - Muay Thai 
01:52pm 08/10/2010
  I'll be totally honest with everyone.

I work for a show called Champions of Champions Elite. It airs on G4TV. My job is basically to go around trolling message boards to get people to go to the site, or to watch the show. I'm getting kinda bored of the ol' bait and switch routine so i thought I'd tell the truth for once. Seriously, you try signing up to several hundred forums a week and see how it feels.

Is anyone here interested in Muay Thai? The show is basically just that. A bunch of guys and women wailing on each other using this particular martial art. The official site also has a contest that looks for the world's best gamer or something.

So, if you wanna check it out, go ahead. If not, ignore me, or ban me, or whatever.

If you do like it, I'd like to hear why. What do you think about Muay Thai? About the show? About our site? I'm genuinely interested in your opinion. For real. No lie.

banana split :)

Hi everyone!

It's nice to have a community in LJ created for Muay Thai enthusiast. :) I'm located in Manila, Philippines and I train in elorde boxing gym http://www.elordeboxing.com/ we've got good trainers here. Some of them compete in local mixed martial arts competition. Brandon Vera drops by to one of the elorde boxing gyms whenever he comes in Manila.

Any tips on how to be more flexible. I'm having difficulties splitting.

  I'm looking for Muay Thai in the Birmingham, Alabama area. I found Spartan Fitness on the Internet, but they appear to be more MMA-oriented. Of course, I would prefer training exclusively in Muay Thai, but I'm open to what's out there.

If anyone has any information on this group or any others in the area, please comment or drop me a line at esimmons205@gmail.com.

  Hello all,

I am new to the community. I have an 11 year old son, he has never participated in any sport other than kick ball a few years ago. He started putting on weight and isn't really outgoing. I heard about Muay Thai on Fight Girls and decided to look into it. At first I thought Capoeira sounded interesting for him, not sure if anyone is familiar with it but it is very physical. It would definitely get the weight off. But in your opinions which do you think would be better? Something he can stick to.

I know that I should have started him out earlier, he is the tallest boy his age in there but he doesn't seem to notice so that's good. And I guess it's never too late. 

All suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Fight Girls Premieres Monday, August 7th
at 9pm ET/PT on the Oxygen Cable-TV Channel

New York, NY -- Fight Girls chronicles seven tough female fighters who are out for the fight of their lives and attempt the impossible -- to beat the best female fighters in the world in a battle for the World Muay Thai Championship. The two-hour reality-TV special will air on Oxygen on Monday, August 7th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time.
Fight Girls was shot over a two-month period on locations in Las Vegas and Thailand. In it, the legendary Master Toddy of Muay Thai fame, who's trained over 30 world kickboxing champions, trains seven fighters that he hand-picked at his school in Las Vegas. Three are finally chosen to travel to Thailand to compete against other female Muay Thai champions.
The show reveals the unexpected faces of those who compete in this rugged sport. Behind the gloves and bruises are attractive mothers, brides-to-be and high-level executives. As the training intensifies, so does the toll on their personal lives, exposing the emotional battles of these powerhouse fighters.
Once the three fighters reach Thailand, they are confronted with the reality of their pursuit by witnessing just how protective their Thai competitors are of their national sport and the disdain they hold for American women. American women are beautiful, they say, but not strong.
Master Toddy rallies each woman to believe in herself and to prove to him they have the lion heart -- the determination to train hard and conquer their fear in the ring.
Fight Girls is a pilot for a potential weekly series. We need the martial arts industry to get behind this show to boost its ratings. The only other martial arts reality-TV show being broadcast is Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV, which recently completed its third hit season.

Hey, firstly thanks to everybody who took the time to reply to my previous question, for anybody who didn't check back.

I'm stepping into the ring for the first time, for my first Interclub fight on Sunday.

Would anybody be willing to offer any last minute tips?

Cheers :)

can't find a trainer 
07:24am 17/04/2006
  Hey guys, I'm new. I'm 19, female, with no current martial arts training, although I do have a good bit of experience with strength and endurance conditioning, and I was wondering if anybody can offer me some advice.

I've been really interested in muay thai for about three years now, and finally I'm at a point where I can devote myself to it physically and mentally, but I still have a problem. I live in Greenville, South Carolina, and from what I can find, there just aren't any teaching resources whatsoever. I can't even find a boxing gym in this area. If any of you guys know of anyone in the area that I can contact about training, I'd love to hear about it. But since I doubt that there really is anyone here who could train me, I also want to ask if you guys think it's at all possible to train myself? I want to learn muay thai very badly, and I won't settle for less, but it seems like for the time being, I might have to fly solo. I figure at least I can start breaking in a training routine and start toughening up my hands and getting used to hitting the bag. Eventually I might be able to get a trainer at my gym interested in helping me out, but even then, he wouldn't be properly trained to teach me, so, it just seems like either way, if I can't find someone with experience, I'm going to have to start from scratch. If you guys have any suggestions on resources to help me learn, or advice for beginners, I'd really appreciate it.

Hello folks, I was coerced by snapdragon_666 to make a post in the community. Yesterday I participated in a grading for my blue shorts rank. So today I am here to report that not only did I manage to survive - I also earned my new rank paying with lots of sweat and PAIN.

Here is a picture of me in my last legs.

  I'm sore and exhausted but at the same time still sort of working off the adrenaline, so I figured I'd share my story with you guys.

I've been training for about 3.5 years now. I've had one gym fight about a year ago but haven't really competed in anything that anyone would count as a real fight since then. Today another guy from the gym and I tested for our shorts. Basically the "hooray, you're a fighter" initiation. Here's what we did.Collapse )

Increasing Flexibility 
01:32pm 27/03/2006

I started Muay Thai about a year and a half ago, when I was 24.

I'd like to increase my flexibility, and am looking at various ways to do so. I perform various stretches regularly, but don't seem to be making as much progress with it as I'd like. I've looked briefly at a few things, such as yoga, Tae Kwon Do (which I understand puts a heavy emphasis on flexibility), and even those rack contraptions advertised in Martial Arts magazines, but I'd really appreciate any advice people have to offer.

Could anybody offer any tips on how I might improve in this area? What's the likelihood of my regaining anywhere near the sort of flexibility and suppleness I had in my childhood/early teens?

new ideas 
07:53am 03/03/2006
  Hey guys! I need some fresh ideas.
I have trained in muay thai for 3 yrs now, but I am no longer at any paticular gym.
I started kinda like a fight club in my barn. We meet 3 nights a week for approx. 1.5 hrs.
We do 1/2 hr warm up, then drills, and a few rounds of sparring.
Problem is, I am feeling very stale. if anyone has some great drills, or anything they think is a great conditioning drill, PLEASE let me know.

Black and blue and it ain't the bedbugs 
11:24am 18/01/2006
  Hhhm. This might be a silly question, but it's on my mind now and I keep forgetting to ask my instructor when I'm training.

A few months ago, I spent a couple of weeks focussing almost obsessively on elbows. Glorious bruises resulted which have all gone... except for one. Is it normal for an elbow to stay yellowey-bluey-green (no pain, just colour) and will it go away (please say yes)?

*excuse silly question*

  Haven't posted around here in a while. and an eventful time it's been.

I am currently signing up for a full contact amateur Muay Thai tournament in Rahway New Jersey. Slightly nervous, but in a good way. I have never competed before, so this is an entirely new experience for me. (I've never even been in a ring) If anyone's in the area of Rahway, and are bored on December tenth, you should come check it out. In addition to Muay Thai, there are also bouts in full contact kickboxing, San Da, and Kung Fu.

Here's the link to the site for the event - http://www.uskba.com/2005tournament.htm

If you decide to come, I'll be the tall scrawny red headed dude in the lowest weight class they have. Haha. wit. :D

My reason for posting this is I have a few questions for any of you who may have competed before.

One - What is a good workout regimen to get into for say a month before a full contact competition? I already bag train once or twice a week, and running was suggested to me, but naught else.

Two - Whats a good diet to crack on while youre working up to competition ability? on this note, whats good to eat the day before such an event?

and finally Three - anyone know a good place to get a DECENT boxing headgear?
