Support Disabled Students at York University! YMT runs the Scotiabank Marathon to raise funds!

Mike Zhang has been training hard for the upcoming Scotiabank marathon and has enlisted the help of a few others from our MT community to raise funds for Disabled Students at York University.

This is a great cause, so please support him or any of the other runners!

"Hey everyone!!!!

On Oct. 16, 2011, I will be participating in the Scotia bank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5k Run / Walk while raising funds for Disabled Students at York University. Support my charity group by pledging my team and me.

I feel that some of us take for granted how lucky we are to be heathly and fit enough to train muay thai. Let's come together as a team, and as people to encourage those less fortunate.

Weekend Fight Post

Here is Coban Lookchaomaesaitong vs. Noppadet Sorsamroeng. As most of you know, Coban was in town this weekend for the Muay Thai Expo, guest teaching with Ajahn Suchart and Ajahn Amnat. Ian and I had the opportunity to visit the expo for the first day to learn from these veterans.

For 45 years old Coban truly looks incredible. Complete with an 8 pack. Him and Ajahn Suchart standing next to each other is just amazing.

Here's a blurry phone pic of the two with me. I better look as good as they do at that age:

Here is an interesting article on Muay Thai scoring, written by professional fighter Damien Trainor. I'm not necessarily saying I whole heartedly agree or disagree with it, but it is a good read.

Here is a picture for you to ponder before you read it...

A Thursday Fight Video

If you have never heard of or seen Sakmongkol vs Jongsanan, youtube it NOW. For those in the know, you'll have probably watched it several times without getting bored.

Here's a fight between two young champions that in my opinion comes close in its raw action. You can tell by how loud the crowd gets as the fight goes has been a while since I've heard so many "ooooway!" Here is Thelek Wor Sungprapai vs Khunsuek P.N.Gym.
