A couple of weeks ago I did a post on the MuayThai legends seminar. It was actually less about the seminar, more about the fact they were going to have a suprise Thai guy. It turns out the surprise Thai guy was my old trainer from FightandFitness, Neungsiam Samphusri.
When I was back in SF, I had a chance to catch up him and it sounds like they all had a great time. It turns out that they’re looking to do a lot more of these seminars. They’re looking to do these for charity.
worst boy band ever.
There’s nothing new about this, I recall Fairtex in the Bay Area holding smokers (interclubs) to benefit Nakmuay’s back in Thailand. There are a lot of Thai Nakmuay’s who need help back in Thailand, but a the NakMuay’s in the states are often overlooked.
Neungsiam Samphusri : Former Lumpini and Mitsubishi 8 man tournament champion.
Matee Jedeepitak: Former Lumpini (multiple), IKF and WMC champion
Saekson Janjira: Former Lumpini and multibelt champion
Jongsanan Fairtex: Former Lumpini, ISKA, and IKF Champion
Sakasem Kanthawong: Former Lumpini Champ with over 250 fights.
Kaensak Sor Ploenchit: 2x thai sports writer fighter of the year, Lumpini and Rajadomnern Champion
These guys have come together to help out their compadres in the states. There is small but tight network of Thai nak muay’s living in the States. It’s a small community, but they look out for each other. These guys got together, to help some of their friends who were in financial in need. Their goal is to start a fund, for Nak Muay’s and these seminars would be the primary way of funding it. Neungsiam told me that their eager to teach and train, and that their actively looking to do more seminars across the states.
It’s quite rare/nearly impossible that you can get so much muaythai talent packed into one room. So if your camp is looking to hold a seminar I would recommend getting in contact with them. I would contact Saekson Janjira .
