30 Days Challenge: How to Nunchaku

A few years ago those 30 days challenges were kind of a big hype. Everybody was running around announcing what they’d do for 30 days. Pick up new habits, read books, etc. As it’s typical for me I’m late to the hype train but I do like the idea of challenging yourself picking up new skills / traits over a certain amount of time. That’s why I’m starting off 2018 with a 30 days challenge. If you follow my-thai.org you know that I’m quite heavily into Martial Arts and with…

One Championship Martial Arts Back in Bangkok – Warriors of the World – Get promotional ticket prices!

After a huge success with its last, and first ever, Bangkok based iteration of a world class Mixed Martial Arts event, Asia’s largest global sports media property, One Championship, is bringing the action back to the city of angels.

Fight Club Thailand – The Fight Club everybody talks about

Thailand is not only the “Land of Smiles” but obviously also the land of Muay Thai and while we all listened to Tylor Durden telling us that the first rule of the fight club is not to talk about the fight club, this fight club here in Bangkok is a bit different. What Fight Club Thailand has in common with the Fight Club from the famous Hollywood blockbuster is the rule that it’s “only two guys to a fight” and “if someone yells stop, goes limb or taps out, the…

Kingdom of Champions – First time ONE MMA in Thailand sees Dejdamrong dethroned

It’s over! It actually happened. A big ass (pun intended) MMA event in Bangkok, Thailand. I don’t want to take anything away from the Full Metal Dojo (FMD) MMA events in Thailand but ONE Championship is a bit of a different caliber. Headed by Thai born entrepreneur and martial arts addict Chatri Sityodtong, whose own life story seems destined to become a major motion picture down the road, ONE Championship is somehow a dream come true martial arts fairy tale. Not too long ago ONE was just a plan, a concept,…

Full Metal Dojo 6 – #FMD6 – MMA in Bangkok [review]

As advertised before, this past weekend Bangkok saw another MMA extravaganza going down. Full Metal Dojo was back in town. It also marked my first ever live attendance to a MMA event and I left, how to say that politely, quite dissatisfied. It’s probably not completely the fault of the event and more the fact that I’m not the normal target audience. But let’s break it down. Location: Insanity Night Club. Having a sports event in a night club. Hm. Lots of loud music inside and outside. Not a club person…
