Thailand training camp 2013

Mr Schembri and I have just come back from a fantastic training camp in Thailand!

We trained twice a day for over 10 days with sessions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu every morning and Muay Thai in the afternoon. It was very hard at times to do 2 long sessions a day and the heat made it even more difficult but I have realised a dream to finally train with some amazing Thai Coaches and Instructors and some amazing grapplers from all over the World.

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sessions took place at Tiger Muay Thai & MMA training Camp under Brazilian Instructor Fernando Maccachero who is a 4th degree Black Belt in BJJ and Coach of the Brazilian Top Team Phuket. It was a fantastic experience and honor to train under Professor Fernando and I learnt a lot in a short amount of time!

The Thai boxing classes were at Dragon Muay Thai with a team of former champions and fighters from all over Thailand. The training was extremely hard in the afternoon heat and the never ending rounds on the pads and heavy bags was definitely a challenge and took my fitness to a new level!

This training camp was amazing and I hope to have more opportunities in the future to go back to Thailand and train again with all these phenomenal Martial Artists! It would also be great to maybe one day take some of my own students to train in different styles and share such a fantastic experience!
