Get your throats ready for Saturday! •
Our style is to do damage. Win, lose, or draw, doesn’t matter. We DO make sure our opponents know they’ve been in a fight.
If you don’t have your tickets yet, check with kru or one of the coaches. See you tonight fighters!

You want to prove something? Do it in the ring
Sparring should be in a controlled environment and in a progressive way. As you get more experienced, you will be able to increase the intensity. It doesn’t matter who “wins” or “loses” in sparring, what matters is that you get to practice what you are taught and have absolutely no ego when doing it.
See you tonight fighters!

That feeling... and that attitude 😅😝when your're done with todays workout 💥
Timing, reaction, and balance. These are key elements when approaching your training.
Ask yourself, am I over doing something? Am I going too fast without focusing on form? Like we always say fighters, you can never be good enough at the basics and you have to learn to walk before you run.
See you tonight!

There are 36 days left of 2018. And with every year, we add a new chapter to our lives. Maybe 2018 was set up for you to do big things in 2019. Maybe this year brought hardship so that you may enjoy success next year. But all this maybe, will only happen if you apply to it. If you go out and do something different. Challenge yourself. Make goals and beat them one step at a time.
If you’re waiting for 2019 or to be “in shape” to start training, then you’ll always be waiting for that. That’s just asking to prolong things. Don’t wait, try now. We all have to start somewhere, why not start now? Don’t wait for you to be in shape to try our gym. You get “in shape” by being at our gym. We will start you slow and work at your own pace. Some days may be hard and some days may be easy, but every day at the gym is better than no days at the gym. See yall on the mats this week fighters! Kids at 5:30pm, beginners at 6:30pm, intermediated at 7:30pm.
-3 weeks out until Fight day (Dec 15th) for Valhalla Fight Series
-December 3rd will be the first day our beginner’s class will move to 7:30pm
-And our Intermediate class will move to 6:30pm Tuesday & Thursdays
-If you order your sweats/zipup hoodies, please be sure to pick them up at the gym. They’re here!
-lastly, Christ House in Alexandria is looking for help with toiletries. Chris House works with individuals who are experiencing homelessness in the Alexandria area. If you could please bring toiletries supplies, such as, soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razor blades, shaving cream, deodorant, shampoo/conditioner, and lotion, we would greatly appreciate it. All items should be travel size. We will have a box at the gym collecting the supplies up until the 21st of December.
-Thanks Nak Muays and have a great Monday!

Good morning fighters! Don’t forget about your road work. With the temperatures starting to drop, make sure you are wearing the appropriate gear when you run outside. •
If you wish to use a treadmill and don’t have an additional gym membership, contact your teammates or coaches for alternatives....there is always a way.

Happy Tuesday Nak Muays!
What you see in the first picture is our very first fundamentals class last year. The following pic is from our beginners and intermediates classes yesterday.
We always tell you that you will not necessarily have to fight when you join our team, but you will learn how to fight and be pushed to your limits. In pushing past your limits, is where real growth happens.
We are already excited for the new year and can’t wait to share the new schedules we will have available. •

Happy Halloween Nak Muays 🎃🎃🎃! Alright guys, as discussed in class, here are our official Team Lotus sweatpants and zip up hoodies! We will start collecting money as of today for your order. The last day to submit your payment will be November 16th. That’s next next Friday! This will allow you to pay your bills, your parents bills, or your kids bills. Whoever it is... We’ll give everyone another 2 weeks to submit their payment! Hoodies and Sweats are $40 each! Unlike our newest vintage T-Shirt order, we will NOT be ordering extras for inventory. Which means, if you do not provide us your payment by Nov 16th for the sweats/hoodies, we will not have any for you to purchase.
For our Sterling location (@disciplemma
) and Winchester location (@ltb_winchester
), please provide your payments and sizes to Leah or Coach Kenny. They will be collecting your orders for you.
As for our Vintage LTB T-shirts, you have up until this Friday night for you to reserve your shirt at a discounted rate for $20. If you miss that then don’t worry, we will be selling those at the gym for $25 each.
Thanks for the listening to our announcements guys and remember, today we will not be having regular classes. Instead we will have Open Mat from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Have a good one y’all and train hard!
we are that small gym in Pueblo with some amazing athletes just trying to make some better lives for some fighters....

Thank you so much to all our fighters who helped out for our quarterly neighborhood cleanup day. Today was a productive day. We not only made our community better by cleaning it, but we were able to get a few people thanking us as they were driving by. Thank you guys and don’t worry, we will be doing this on a quarterly basis. Get on the next one!
Great costumes and awesome vibes everyone! We hope you all have an amazing Halloween weekend and again, thanks fighters for all you do. We love y’all! Oss.
Good morning Nak Muay!!! Looks like the rain will stop before noon today so we can do our neighborhood clean up day. AFTER our costume open mat from 10am-12pm. Pizza and Salad will be served around noonish 🍕🥗👻🎃🤡
Not everyone is required to dress up but everyone is required to clean up. Out of all the cars that’ll be passing us and looking over, if we can inspire just at least one person, then that’s getting the message across. Remember it may be a little cold so bring a coat or your LTB hoodie. Thanks Nak Muays and have a great Saturday! 😊🌎🚮♻️🗑
Now that we have confirmed fights for both November and December, it’s time to turn things up....just a bit 😈
With that being said, if you have a confirmed fight, we are here to make sure you are more than ready to get in the ring. We have a system that has taken us to be biggest stages in the US, trust the process. Never stop learning, be humble, train around your injuries, if you feel too comfortable, seek the uncomfortable...that’s the only way to grow.
See you tonight fighters!

Friends and Family of Lotus Thai Boxing (LTB)
We have a little homework for you. Whenever you have time or whenever you’re sitting down at a computer, can you do us a favor and type something quick for us? Maybe on a Saturday or Sunday morning where you’re looking out towards the sun with a nice hot cup of coffee 😊☕️. But we would like for you to write something up and post it on our google review. Here’s what we want to know.
- What was your first experience with Lotus Thai Boxing? How did you contact us? Did you call or send us an email? Who’d you speak to and how’d the conversation go?
- How’d you feel before attending your very first class? Were you nervous, scared, anxious, or just didn’t know what to expect? And then how was your first class?
- Was it what you expected? What did you like about it? What stood out the most to you that got you to say, hey what the hell, I’ll continue with this? And lastly, how do you feel now?
The point of this task is that you may never know who you may encourage or inspire. It could be someone simply who has never had the courage to try something new. Or maybe a young girl/boy who has never been the active or social type and could use your inspiration. Or maybe someone who’s in need of a passion or hobbies to get them through rough times. Notice how none of our concerns isn’t about the actual physical contact part itself. At Lotus Thai Boxing, we are more than just a fight gym. We are an actual community, a school, a gym, a team, a family. When signing up, you obtain more than just the combative side of it, but you are obtaining a family. Thank you Nak Muays and we can’t wait to read your experience!
Big boys working hard 💪🏻 any heavyweights want some rounds give us a shout 📲
Massive fights coming up, to be announced soon! 👊🏻
Good day Nak Muays, so as some of you may have heard, we will be adjusting some of our classes soon to accommodate to our newest members joining. Just last night, we had over 20 people in our beginner’s class and then 20 people in our intermediate’s class. Every year we come to the same issue as to where our students start to grow in numbers and we are left with the same space. Great issue to have but we need to make room for our newcomers.
So, starting on January 2nd, 2019, we are officially moving our Intermediate’s class from Monday/Wednesday (7:30pm-8:30pm), to Tuesday/Thursday from 6:30pm-7:30pm. We will then have our “Free-Trial/Fundamentals” class, where people can try their free week trial at LTB on Monday and Wednesday from 6:30pm-7:30pm, following our Beginners class from 7:30-8:30pm. Our beginner’s class will run at a much faster pace than our Free-Trial/Fundamentals class.
So for our current intermediate members, please try your best to adjust to our new schedule starting in 2019. We will try to roll out the changes maybe sometime after November so we can slowly work our the new days. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to Kru Carlos and we will do our best to fit your schedule. Thank you Nak Muays and please stay tuned for our newest KIDS PROGRAM announcement this coming weekend! We are offering two different types of programs for our kid’s class while school is in session. Thanks guys and see y’all later!
Tag someone who Love/Hate or just good at cut his opponents or just get cuts 😅🔪💉
From one of my fights in Thailand.
Good technique to use against opponents who catches your front kicks, 1. lift your front leg as you will do a front kick 2. as soon they open up theyr guard to catch/counter punch, step in with that front leg instead of throwing the front kick and follow up by a elbow/up-elbow🔪💉

•I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting this past year. In life, your situation will keep repeating itself until you learn your lesson….
•I got too comfortable with my life. I thought I had it made but it became stagnant and meaningless. At times I would feel alone and depressed. Like life itself was weighing me down. The choices I made weren’t the best ones. I became unhealthy and over-weight. I would look at old photos and see the man I use to be. How did I get to this point in my life, what was I doing wrong? I felt as if I hit rock bottom with nobody to turn to… I was reading and came across two quotes that hit home for me;
“People change for two reasons: either they learn enough that they want to, or they've been hurt enough that they have to."
“Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional.”
•Last December, I made myself a promise. That promise was to get healthy again and to do whatever it takes to get there. I needed to change. I realized that I wasn’t putting enough effort. I had to stop relying on other people to push me and motivate me. People won’t always be there for you… I needed to be my own hero, my own motivation. At the end of the day, you only have yourself.
•Ever since I left the Marine Corps, I’ve never found the comradery I once had with my brothers until I came back home to @LotusThaiBoxing.
I couldn’t have done it without y’all! Muay Thai really saved my life. 🙏🏼
•My kru has always told me to inspire others. I really didn’t know what it meant until today writing this post. I hope that my journey inspires everyone. Life’s too short. Go out there and go get what you want. Go get what you deserve! If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.
My ⛽️ man @whatamenace
for always gassing me up and setting me ablaze! You’ve been there since day 1 and I appreciate ya!
My kru @WhiteLotusLopez
for your guidance and mentorship! 🙏🏼
My teammates at LTB for the extra push I need to make me move. 🙏🏼 ***Disclaimer: This is just a progress post. This isn’t my final form and I am nowhere near done.
Starting weight: 237lbs
Current weight: 191lbs
Interclub done and dusted! Massive thanks to all the teams who came to support the show today, congrats to all your fighters 💪👊 And a huge thank you to all the #BloodlineCrew
