How did you discover Martial arts/Muay thai?

I started with martial arts when I was 15 years old because me and my friends thought it seemed cool. That’s how it started and as time went on I started to take it more seriously. Eventually it was only me left of the five friends that originally started. I did my debut in the ring when I was 18 years old and since then I’ve put almost all my free time on thaiboxing.

How did you end up at Talingngam Muay thai?

Six months ago me and my girlfriend decided to go to Thailand for training. I had already been in Phuket four times before so I thought I would try something on a different side of Thailand and we decided to go to Koh samui. At first I didn’t quite know what gym to choose and by coincidence I saw a video of one of Kriss’s (talingngams) fights on Max Muay thai, I thought he seemed quite good so I sent him a message and asked about the island and the gym he was training at. That’s how we decided to go and try it out on Talingngam muay thai, I liked it here and have now been here for 5 months.


33 fights 26W 7L

Idols and/or inspiration: 

I like Yodsaenklai Fairtex style of fighting, especially his left kick. I also look up to Giorgio Petrosyan which has a bit more of kickboxing in his style.

Favorite thai dish?

Noodle soup with pork
