The Sudbury MMA team traveled to the birth place of Muay Thai, Thailand!! After arriving in Bangkok, we quickly made our way to Phuket, a well known strip that includes the world renowned gym, Tiger Muay Thai. Tiger Muay Thai is a popular destination for both recreational competitors as well as world champions including the UFC’s 125lbs champ Valentina Shevchenko. The facility is huge with several mats, several rings, and so many different programs. Piper did some sunrise yoga, Mike trained some no-gi BJJ, while Sonia, Shyanne, and Ricky trained Muay Thai and some boxing.
We spent a lot of time training but we also visited some of the beautiful sites! We visited the Big Buddha and got blessed by the Monks. We also visited the magical Phi Phi Islands. We traveled almost an hour by boat to the middle of the ocean to these breathtaking islands. We snorkeled with the fish, floated in spectacular lagoons, saw some monkeys on Monkey Island, and visited Maya Bay where Leonardo Dicaprio filmed The Beach.
Our trip to Thailand was amazing! The training was amazing, the food was excellent and the people were super friendly!! None of us wanted to leave! We’re excited to start planning next year’s trip and we hope we can get an even bigger group!
