**First I would just like to make it clear that my blog is about MY experiences as a fighter, the things that have happened to me and the way i have seen things, the good the bad and the ugly things that i have experienced. IT IS NOT about other fighters that i have fought yes there names will be mentioned but the blog is from my side of the fight, my lead up my feelings in the fights, my health, injuries, adventures good and bad, they may differ from what other people may think but im not writing as other people im writing as me. In none of my blogs do i bag out any of my opponents or say anything bad about them. I just tell the story how it happened from my side even the details that most people wouldn’t tell. They are not excuses for losing or winning its just the way the story goes. I’m not going to miss out details because it sounds bad or good im just telling it how it happened. I will write that i get bashed and i will write if i win. I have not had very much luck in Muay Thai and i know that some of the stories would be hard to believe. Even i look at them and think how could someone have so much bad luck but with health, injuries, anxiety and the rest. I know that some of my opponents may get pissed about things i write but they need to realise its nothing to do with them its my experience and if i was sick or injured before a fight im going to write it in my blog because it was the
experience that happened to me. Im not taking anything away from the people who beat me or trying to make people i have beaten feel bad. This blog is just for people to read and maybe learn from my mistakes as a fighter learn some things they might not have known or even just have a good laugh because the same things have happened to them. You will to deal with my crappy writing and punctuation too sorry haha im a fighter not a writer but i know you will understand it so that’s all that matters :)****
My Name is Natasha Sky, I’m 33 years old and im a Female Muay Thai fighter from Australia. I have been training and fighting Muay Thai since 2008. I have trained and fought in Australia and spent 3 years living and fighting in Thailand. I had my first Muay Thai fight in Australia in April 2008 after only 3 months of training and i won. That fight was so hard, it made me want to better my self, it gave me a huge challenge in life that i had been searching for. I met my husband Dane in 2008 at a fight show, he is a fighter as well and it was love at first bashing (i saw him get stopped in his fight). Then i moved to Queensland from South Australia where i trained under Leon Spain at Spain’s Muay Thai Gym In Toowoomba. Since then i have gone on to fight the best girls in Australia regardless of experience and out of my weight class. I fought my first world champ when i only had 7 fights, I lost but i still went on to fight a few more world champions after that with still only around 10-15 fights. I won my first title in may 2009, it was the 51.7kg WKBF Queensland Title, then i went on to win the 54.5kg WKBF Queensland title in Nov 2009. I had a good year in 2009 only losing one fight and that was against a world champ with more than double my fight experience. In 2010 I fought in the first ever 55kg 8 women eliminator in Australia and the next day fought in a totally different state on the Master Toddys Tuff girls show. I didn’t have a very good year in 2010 because i stepped up to the top level girls when i wasn’t quite ready and not very experienced. I got sick at the end of 2010 and at the start of 2011 had to have an operation. Four days after my operation i came to Thailand with my husband to train and fight for a year. I had 4 fights 3 wins and one loss and i fought girls with over 100 fights and i fought the south Thailand champion. Due to injuries i couldn’t fight as much as i would have liked 😦 i had a lot of bad luck. After our money run out we went back to Australia. Dane and i started our own gym where we thought we would be able to train our selves but it was too hard trying to be a trainer, a fighter as well as work full time jobs. We stayed there for 1 year and had a young fighter who had a few fights but we needed more. We saved up, packed up and headed back to Thailand for a year. After a 14 month break from training and fighting it was hard! spent a year training back out of SINBI Muay Thai Phuket. I fought some tough fights one against the Thai WMC world champ losing by points and a win against a girl from China for the local Stadium title belt. I fought a world Champion from Germany for the first ever WWBA world title 3 weight classes up but lost on points. Once again we run out of money to stay in Thailand so had to head back to Australia to work for 1 year to save the money go back. Spent 14 months in Thailand at Sinbi, had an 8 fight winning streak, had better luck this time. In Feb 2015 i was the first Australian to fight on the famous Muay Thai Angles show in Bangkok, wining my fight on points and coming away with the best technique of the night award. I was also the main event fight on the Phuket Queens Birthday fights which was a huge honor 🙂 In 2016 My husband and i opened up our own Thai Boxing gym in Murray Bridge South Australia called Team Sky Thai Boxing.
After over a year break from fighting and spending 8 months setting up our gym i had 2 fights at the end of 2016 in Australia.
Thank you to all the people who have helped me along the way and my sponsors past and present.
I will be posting all sorts of blogs on this site about my good, bad and ugly experiences in Muay Thai and also Female fighter interviews. If there is anything you would like to know or me to blog about feel free to let me know 🙂
