For the love of the Game!
Amateur athlete: "a person who engages in a study, sport, or other activity for pleasure rather than for financial benefit or professional reasons."
Amateurs are the lifeblood of Muay Thai here in Ontario. Without any prize money to be won, it is a labour of love every time these guys/girls step up to the ring.
Some may just try out the sport as a chance to see what they've got, other use it as a stepping stone to eventually become a professional. Whatever the reason, we need to support our amateurs!! Particularly in our province, amateurs are at a pretty high level of skill and always put on exciting shows.
Come out on Saturday May 10th to York Muay Thai's 5th Anniversary Party and see some live exhibition bouts between amateurs from the top Muay Thai gyms in Ontario! These exhibitions are meant to display what Muay Thai is to the crowd and give amateurs the opportunity to move safely around in the ring without it being a full out fight. Be there to show your appreciation :)
