I was so happy to finally see this online. Kaiyasit is one of my favourite fighters, not just of the Chuwattana camp , in general, and few people I’ve met outside of Thailand know who he is. Actually, I don’t know if I’ve met anyone outside of Thailand who does, but you should. He’s technical, fiercely intelligent and has held a number of belts. I’m about five hours away from Chuwattana right now and I don’t have this kid’s number, but if I remember correctly, he’s been a WBC champion, Rajdamnern Stadium champion…..ah man, I wish I could do him justice here, but I can’t….he’s in his early thirties, fights consistently (meaning every month or so), has been fighting out of Chuwattana since he was a kid and of all the guys that have come and gone in that gym over the past year, I always watch this one – I just try to learn as much as I can.
I’ve seen his name listed as Kaiyasit, Kaiyasith, Gaiyasit and Gaiyasith…..he’s in red.

More about Laura
I’m a Canadian who decided to quit my job, sell most of what I own, pack a suitcase, and skip continents to pursue a martial art I’m not particularly efficient in. A minimalist. A modern nomad. A kid who just likes having a good time.
My attraction to muay thai is that it’s an art with no wasted motion. It has been the greatest vehicle for my continual education. It’s incredibly challenging to me – both the physical and the mental game. The latter probably more so than the former.
Currently I’m in Bangkok training muay thai fulltime. The plan is to be here for a few years, but realistically, I have no idea where this path is leading, or what the timeline is. I like change and pushing my comfort zone. A lot. Nevertheless, muay thai will be the constant among the variables.
Be prepared for updates, rambling, video content and anything I’ve learned that I think may of use to you.
This hasn’t been easy, but so far, its been a pretty sick ride.
