***Update...I`m a retard. The Ramon Dekkers seminar is April 24th and not this weekend as I eluded to in the following blog. The guys went to OAMA for the inhouse Muay Thai and will be training the remainder of the weekend. Sudbury Muay Thai had 3 guys competing and I`m pleased to say that all 3 won their fights!! Congrats to Khune Mike, Corey and Kyle!
Friday has finally arrived. I spent the week on the road for work and anytime I`m away for more than a few days, diet and excercise take a back seat to restaurant food and hours spent behind the wheel in my car.
I`m looking forward to getting back to the club, but not sure exactly who will be around to train with tomorrow. Steve & the guys from the Muay Thai program are in Ottawa for some inhouse Muay Thai demos at OAMA along with a seminar with Ramon Dekkers.
Dekkers is a retired Dutch kickboxer and 8 time Muay Thai world champion. He owns an incredible record of 186 wins, 20 losses and 2 draws. (95 wins coming by way of knockout!) Until recently, I didn`t have a real good pulse on the world of Muay Thai, but for those who follow combat sports, Ramon Dekkers is a legend. He was the first foreigner to be named "Muay Thai Fighter of the Year" in Thailand.
Our club is very fortunate to be affiliated with the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts. Pat`s team consistently brings in world class fighters from Muay Thai and BJJ which do nothing but elevate our programs to new heights. You can visit OAMA on the web at www.oama.ca
Here`s a quick highlight video of Ramon Dekkers. Good luck to the boys from Sudbury BJJ and Muay Thai Academy at the in-house fights!!
