The Coaches

The Coaches is a new kid on the Hong Kong Muay Thai block.  Nestled in one of the region’s four rings, Wan Chai, The Coaches offers a fifth ring led by krus Dum (Rajadamnern champion) and Ta (was not able to get his stats).  Both of whom are from the famed Sitsongpeenong Muay Thai Camp, Bangkok.img_4821

Characteristic of a Muay Thai-crazed newbie, a busy schedule will deter all but the most determined si sib sam Filipino lover of the art.  Thanks to the Hong Kong tram for the Central-Wan Chai shuttle.  How convenient.

To describe a typical session:  warm-up, 100 skip knees, pad work, 60 speed kicks, 60 skip knees, bag work, and conditioning work.  Ko pun krap!

Kru Dum was heavy into technique and drilling them before flowing as he called the shots.  Kru Ta, on the other hand, got me busy with fundamentals then almost went freestyle.  Quite a tag team.  “Wonderful,” as kru Dum puts it.

Pleasure, The Coaches!
