Muay Thai Guy is a site created by Sean Fagan, which has tips for training and techniques, nutrition and motivational material. There’s also a podcast, where Sean interviews fighters and promoters, and shares his own thoughts on various issues surrounding combat sports. Previous interviewees include Kevin Ross, Tiffany Van Soest and John Wayne Parr.
Sean asked me to do an interview with him for The Muay Thai Guy Podcast. Under The Ropes has only been around for about a month or so, and I was pleased and flattered at the amount of feedback I’ve had already. It’s also great to see that so many other people in the Muay Thai community are so eager to help each other out. While written words seem to be my forte, spoken words are quite the opposite for me, so it was a little out of my comfort zone. Nevertheless, I’m very grateful for the opportunity to share my story and put something out there not just for women in Muay Thai, but for others who are looking to start a journey like the one I’m on.
During the interview, we talked about why I chose to live in Thailand, how to get work here and what it’s like to live and work as a teacher in Thailand. We also discussed how I train, and touched on some issues for women in Muay Thai.
You can listen to the podcast on the Muay Thai Guy website and on Apple Podcasts.
