from FB memory that came up this morning, I'm sharing it on IG for those who I'm not connected with on FB. This is my very first kickboxing fight, looking at these photos makes me quite emotional, what a journey, little did I realise the impact my coach standing right beside has had on my life. Maurice Cooper he is forever in my corner & I will always forever be in his ❤🙏 Back in 1997 it was illegal for women to box & kickbox in NSW. I had been training for 12mths i asked my coach if i could fight he said no but eventually i turned it into a Yes from that point on i never looked back. I made the transition into MT a yr later when i attended a MuayThai seminar held by Ajarn Chai.... he told me one day Sindy your going to be world champ....kinda like the sound of that...the rest is history 😉 i trained my arse off twice a day never skipped a session.
My sessions included 6 days a week
8K run for my warm up then MT technique training drills
8k run: 5 x 3 pads, bag work, shadow spar, footwork, sparring & clinch, 300 knees, 200 teep, 100 kicks, situps to finish off.
Plus swimming, strength and sprint training
To fight like a Thai you must train like a Thai so I did!.
