Fly Me To The Moon – Aerial Yoga (Fly) & Pole Dance Studio review

After my favorite yoga fly studio was shut down I had to look for a different place to practice aerial yoga.

So if you are looking for a nice place to practice aerial yoga or simply want to try something new such as Aerial fly (or aerial hammock), pole dance (not stripper) or Aerial Hoop, Fly…

7 Famous Muay Thai Fighters and their Game of Thrones characters

This is the follow up to MMA characters and their GOT characters and fits into our GOT series of posts rather well (check: How Game Of Thrones characters would fare in Thailand).

Nevertheless, let’s dive into the GOT Nak Muay Style Buakaw – Jon Snow Obviously Thailand’s Muay Thai superstar number one and hero of the Thai people needs to fill…

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.

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,…
