What a Night!

The York Muay Thai Exhibition Fight Night was a huge success!  

Live music performed by Crunchy Roll   and DJ Visuth,  Kirby and Gaston emceeing,  $10 haircuts by YMT students and Toronto barbers Khris and Alvin, a Lip sync battle which Kru Brian from Training Ground won the hearts of the children, Gary Goodridge and Jean's daughters presenting the medals, and of course the athletes who put on a craaaazy show of skill and heart!   How's that for a run on sentence??

After these pictures, you can see Kru Jen's full thank you message. Also, stay tuned for pictures from YMT's true photography genius, Johnny Tang!

Till then, here are some quick pics (also found on instragram #yorkmuaythai):
