Last time I saw Thomas he was not tall and bold, only a bit beaten up :P

Matt, I stay in BKK all the time, unless I have a shoot. Give me a call when you are here.

im with a smaller gym. run by a guy called pedro.... spanish

he s cool because he teaches us a lot of techniques that the thais don t normally teach westerners.. namely elbows and knee attacks.

He also teaches us a lot about the weeknesses of modern muay thai and how to use them agaisnt thai s in the ring. There s 2 guys here preparing to fight.

He s very "technique" driven. Unlike a lot of the gyms that are more "technique relaxed" and expect u to learn from trial and error. on the pads and sparring.

he teaches a lot of ancient muay thai techniques mixed in with modern ring fighting... and grappling... esentially what the americans call "no holds barred".

Im spending another week here then heading off, better technique in hand and spend time at other gyms with more time sparring and on the pads.

but right now im ill... and bunking.. ill send u a text
