Muay Thai Gear Review: Yokkao Airtech Carbon Neon Green shorts

As I always wanted to be able to throw some beautiful flying knees I obviously had to buy those shorts as pictured above as I expected to be able to copy Singdam’s style right away after putting them on. I won’t go into much detail on whether or not that actually worked out but I can certainly give you a review of that shorts. Why did I buy those shorts? Mainly because of the ‘airtech’ name to it as they promise to dry faster and be more breathable. Since I…

Thaismai Muay Thai Boxing Gloves Review

Since my last Muay Thai gloves (TopKing) didn’t last that long I had to get some new ones and decided to go for the ThaiSmai this time. The best gloves I had so far were the Boonsport ones but since their stock is always rather small and I like trying new things I figured I should try something different this time. When checking out shops and stores for different gloves I always asked if there are any gloves that match the boonsport style, bit tighter and longer down the wrist,…

Mankong Phranai Muay Thai Gym [review]

MKPN is different. In a good sense. At least speaking from a personal perspective. It’s rather small compared to most other gyms you’ll find on this and other lists but the coaches there are pretty great and aren’t only there to hold pads but also to actually correct you with your technique and give you some real fight tips that can improve your game dramatically. I’ve seen a lot of people come and go there, especially foreigners are often a bit scared / surprised by how small the place looks…
