Kicking off a month of knees, thought this would be an entertaining and potentially educational video for you all! Just some great clips of a very knee focused bout! Watch for some great connections, set ups and foot work...or just 'cause knees are awesome :)

An Elbow Master: Karuhat Sor Supawan vs Lamnamoon Sor Sumalee (video)

As elbow month comes to a close, it's only fitting that we post a master of this incredible technique for you to enjoy and learn from.

Karuhat (pink shorts) was one of the best fighters, period. However, he was an ace with those elbows and knew the range so well that he could almost land them at will. Here, you can watch him fight Lamnamoon (blue), who was known for his knees. In this case, Karuhat used his other weapons (such as the teep) to keep Lamnamoon at bay and then closed the distance for an elbow when the time was right.

As well, Karuhat did not often venture far from the straight (cross) elbow or the upper cut elbow (tad mala). He used these basic tools with such precision, balance and timing that he didn't need to use any fancy technique. It's all in the execution.

Kru Day celebration Recap

YMT had an amazing turn out Saturday night. We gathered to honour the teachers of our art, and show our appreciation for the hard work and love. As a student of the gym, it is my privelege to say that Kru Jen is my instructor and that the PC assistants we have are some of the most dedicated people I've met.

In addition to speeches and celebration, we also had exhibition bouts between athletes of our family gyms to pay our respects to Muay Thai the way we know best. Sam, PC Cam and Roman all stepped up to the ring to represent and made our team proud.

They were cheered on by an amazing chorus of support and really showed the community how much we care about each other. Last but not least, Kru Jen's students from York University's Muay Thai program also showed up in style, joining our already fun loving and hard working group.

Here are a mix of pictures from Haniel and Terry:

Elbow War! (video)

I've posted about this before, but it seems fitting to repost it now!

We've been starting a focus on elbow work lately, so for sheer entertainment value, here is the legendary elbow war!
Note that this isn't the ideal exchange to get into (these guys are really taking hard shots). The toughness of these fighters makes it seem like the elbows aren't doing anything, but the truth is that Sakmongkol and Jongsanan are just THAT gritty. For the most part, this is just super entertaining :)

King Fighter 124lbs Tournament at New Lumpinee Stadium (videos)

Lumpinee stadium has always been highly regarded as the most prestigious battle ground in Thailand (along with Rajadamnern stadium). Recently, the stadium was taken down and moved to a fresh new location. For it's grand opening, a 4 man tournament was held for the King Fighter 124lbs title belt. Here are all the bouts!

Superbank vs Sam-A:

Superlek vs Sangmanee:

Tournament Final:

Note that all fights are 3 rounds instead of the typical 5 for Thailand, due to the tournament format.
