1. What made you you decide to start training in Muay Thai and BJJ?

Coming from a Taekwando background, I have always wanting to start on Muay Thai and BJJ after watching some MMA, Muay Thai and BJJ fights. Muay Thai can be a dominant tool in any striking sports and BJJ is an effective self defense martial arts. I was also looking a way to improve my fitness as I gained a lot of weights during my university days. I started to train MT Fitness at a gym near my house for a year, and that is the place where I met Tony. Tony introduced me to Rebellion fights and I was hooked with the matches. After a discussion with Tony, I realized it is time to up my Muaythai Skill, took on new BJJ classes, and joined William Street Gym to improve my techniques and fitness.

2. How long have you been training for and typically how often?

I’ve joined WSG since the beginning of 2016, and I train Muay Thai and BJJ on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. I do some power-lifting exercise on Tuesday and Sunday. Friday is my favorite rest day.

3. Did you have any previous training experience?

Taekwando and MT Fitness.

4. Whats your favourite things about training?

My favourite things about training are learning new techniques to improve my skills, and techniques correction feedback from the coaches and trainers so that I know I am on the right track.

5. What’s your least favourite?

Burpees.

6. Do you have any training goals?

At the moment, getting better and better in Muay Thai and achieve my next belt level in BJJ.

What made you you decide to start training in Muaythai and Boxing?

Ive always been in and out of martial arts throughout my teenage years and after having a break for about 5 years from any training, I was really wanting to get back into training. I was hesitant to go back after such a long break so I wanted to try a new style of martial arts and start fresh.
I wasn’t feeling challenged in my training at gym with my PT and this was impacting on my emotional health and something needed to change! I was looking mainly to do muay thai but ended up also really enjoying boxing.

Did you have any previous trading experience?

Yes. In the past I have done Aikido, Kickboxing and Kyokushin Karate.

Whats is the most enjoyable part of training?

Having a really good cardio work out as well as learning and practicing some great fighting skills. Also feeling stronger and fitter after each session. Also that women can fight/train just as hard as men.

What do you least like about training?

Needless to say push ups and burpees!!!

Do you have any training goals?

I would love to get even more fit, potentially be able one day to be considered to be good enough for an amateur fight. Ideally I would also love to be able to train 4 times a week instead of 3. I also really want to improve on my Muaythai sparring and get better at clinching and throws.

What made you start training?
 
One night a friend introduced me to this statuesque girl with great muscly arms, and I thought, “I want to look like that!” So my friend told me that she was a fighter at Sy’s gym (Kaizen back then). I turned up one morning to give it a shot, and I enjoyed it so much that I haven’t been able to stay away since.
 
How long have you been training for and how often?
 
It’s been four years now. I normally train 5 times a week boxing, and I try to get in a couple of strength and conditioning sessions each week to help with my fitness.
 
Any previous training experience?
No.
 
What are your favourite things about training?
I enjoy being pushed and challenged every session, and I feel good and sleep much better after I’ve trained. It’s also rewarding when you work hard at something and it pays off in sparring.
 
What’s your least favourite?
Getting frustrated with myself when I’m not improving something.
 
Do you have any training goals?
I’d like to have a couple more fights this year, but even if I don’t I still just want to keep at it because it’s great for keeping fit and a bit of stress relief.

Training in: Muaythai

1. What made you you decide to start training in Muaythai?

I’ve actually been wanting to do Muaythai for quite a few years but I guess I just wasn’t ready to commit to it. A lot of my friends back in New Zealand do it and that’s where I first found out about it, watching them at fight nights, was super interested in it but just wasn’t willing to give it my own time. Then after meeting a couple of the guys from William Street I decided it was time.

2. How long have you been training for and typically how often?

I’ve been training for about 6 months now, pretty sporadically unfortunately. I’ve been away for probably 2 months of that due to over seas holidays and I play touch rugby as well which sometimes I miss a night of training. On average I do 3 nights a week but would like it to be 4 or 5.

3. Did you have any previous trading experience?

No training at all. Wasn’t one of those kids who did karate or anything growing up.

4. Whats your favourite things about training?

My favourite things about the training would probably be just learning really. I’m not the biggest fan of working out, but this allows me to do that in a fun way while learning stuff.

5. What’s your least favourite?

There’s points in a session where you’re like ‘shit not another one’ but that really just comes down to how much you want to improve. So although you might not like doing that, it’s all good!

6. Do you have any training goals?

To be honest I’m pretty competitive, and love testing myself so I wouldn’t mind working my way to a fight, but for now I just want to improve myself as much as I can.

What made you decide to start boxing ?

I had been training in kung fu, but was looking for something to compliment my kung fu training that had more cardio, and more impact. I tried muay thai, but found boxing suited me better. I enjoyed it so much that very soon boxing became my primary training focus.

How long have you been training for and how often?

I have been training for more than 2 years now. Initially only once or twice a week, but now I generally train 4 or 5 times a week.

Any previous training experience?

Yes, 7 years kung fu.

What are your favourite things about training?

I enjoy being the mental and physical challenge of boxing, and especially love when my body is feeling balanced and light when doing techniques and drills (it happens every now and then).

It’s also great feeling fit, strong and healthy.

What’s your least favourite?

The second round of skipping before I’ve warmed up….oh, and burpees.

Do you have any training goals?

Keep training, keep improving, and maybe do some amateur fights before I get too old 😉

  1. What made you decide to start training in Muaythai?

initially i started muay thai for fitness but very quickly fell in love with the sport, there is no other hobby I’ve tried that when i go all my focus is just on this one thing and i am totally stress free. I honestly enjoy going to training, and am trying to improve every day. My opinion is that every woman should know how to throw a decent punch.

2. Did you have any previous training experience?

I have done some Muaythai, Brazilian jujitsu and Krav Maga before joining William st. gym.

Whats is the most enjoyable part of training?

Getting in the cardio is fantastic and being able to improve upon my skills is great but none of that would be possible without the fantastic coaches, who genuinely care about your improvement. The fact the the owner knows almost every member of his gym by name speaks in volumes. The atmosphere of the gym is what gets me there 6 days a week.

3. What do you least like about training?

Probably burpees, they are never fun no matter how fit you are.

4. Do you have any training goals?

At the moment i am just focussed on improving my fitness and technique, maybe eventually be good enough to have a fight, but that is a long while away.
