What’s up fellas.
I’m back… just got my internet hooked up and I’m good to go. It was good to get back to Bangkok. I had hoped to get out to some fights but in the end I just ended up kicking it with my dad.
I’m happy to see that we’ve been getting a steady stream of Contender Asia clips. I apologize for all the tools that’ve been coming on and posting spoilers. Seriously you’re not welcome here. I’d would have got on them sooner, but I wasn’t on the site all that much.
I think I’m going to start giving assign some of you moderation tasks, especially when I’m out of town.
One of the fights I would have got to if I had known about it was this one, in Suphan Buri, just slightly north of Bangkok.
I was able to pull this off the tv, it’s the fight between Orono Wor. Petchboon, and Alex Cobra. A little factoid but Orono is actually from Suphan Buri, and has got the skills to pay the bills.
The next day at training I spoke with Bernung Sakhomsin about the fight. He showed me how to execute the last elbow technique Orono threw… the idea is that you want to fake a teep, as your opponent anticipates a teep they will step back and lean slightly forward. At that point you lunge forward with a straight elbow.
Anyway I’ve got the next installment of the Contender Asian coming up and some other good stuff.
I’m going to be exploring some Muay Thai Camps in London this week. It should be interesting. I’m headed to Jackapong Muay Thai this week, I’ll keep you posted.
