Hello to All and welcome to Muay Thai Roundtable! This forum is intended to be a place for people of all levels and interest in Muay Thai to come and connect, discuss, and ask questions or offer tips from our various experiences.  The Roundtable is a little bit different in that aside from posting general topics which are specifically encouraged, you can also address questions specifically to me or Emma - the idea of this forum grew out of the questions we both have received in private communications - and of course everyone is invited to respond as well. It's a community resource, and hopefully a knowledge store. We've set up some thread categories to help organize and facilitate exchanges, hopefully there will be more as we go and gather more steam. There is a general board, as well as a "women only" board, which is a place for women to discuss issues or experiences which may be too uncomfortable to voice otherwise, but also a place to help foster female Muay Thai dialogue between women.

In all boards, please be respectful and considerate of each other. Some guidelines are that inflammatory comments or language intended only to incite is not permitted; respectful disagreement, requests for clarification and difference of opinion and experience are all welcome. This Roundtable is a space for us, so please make yourself at home and be polite both as a host and as a guest.

Some online forums are a "Free for All" in terms of moderation and this is not one of them. This Roundtable is a heavily modified space - as such, please do not be offended if a moderator steps in, but also please do not hesitate to ask for a moderator if you feel uncomfortable, disrespected, or attacked.  Speak openly, be nice.

If you are new to forums be sure to read our Forum Features and How to Use Them post, as it will help make everything more interesting.

still playing with the tool bar .... la la la lala la la l a

 

in muay thai news- just been gathering a load of results back to 1977 ... that early they are kickboxing... first international muay thai fight is from 1981 in holland. If anyone has early early results I have a home for them.

 

My intention is to collate the results in a way that should help chart the progression of female Muaythai (and related disciplines that afford common opponents) as it establishes globally and grows in participant numbers - don't hold your breath but it should get done this year . Should make for a nice archive and hopefully attract more info on the early days.  May form the basis of a written piece on the history of women in the sport.

I'm Kristen. I'll mostly be a lurker since I'm not a muay thai practitioner myself but Sylvie asked me to help test drive the new forum. I'll have to dig up a cool avatar to post with.

Hi everyone! I'm Tyler and currently training at Master Toddy's in Bangkok. I had never trained prior to coming here, but have been going at it for almost seven months now. It's too much fun! I'm excited to meet more of you and expand my Muay Thai social circle!

Hi, I'm Darina. I started training seriously about a year ago while living in Japan, and I'm currently at the end of my six week stay in Thailand before heading back home to Germany. I intend to keep training and fighting back home. Muay Thai has changed my life.

Thanks for joining up, Nick. I hope we can help to spread the word about your efforts and get as much help as possible for the kids at your orphanage. The lack of education around HIV and AIDS in all parts of the world make it very difficult for those affected and really anything we can do to make it easier is hugely meaningful.

Sylvie, why are/were you asking females to train with you? Please elaborate.

Is this offer still open?

Hi Priscilla,

I've invited women to come and train with me because I feel we all benefit from meeting with and supporting each other. I also have no other women at my gym, so it's a real treat for me when I have women to train with :)

Yes, the offer is still open. I'm almost always at the gym, so if you find yourself in Pattaya shoot me a line!

Hello - I am from Canada, been practicing muay thai on and off for about 4 years. I am currently looking for a new club back home, but I think I found my spot :) 

Trying to put together some good drills I can practice on my own. 

Looking forward to talking to you all! 

Mike
