So It was about Nov 2007 when I seen my first real “Moo Thai” fight as I called it back then. It all started when a friend of mine from work and I were talking about getting fit. I had just gone out and brought my self a brand new Honda CR 125 motor cross bike and I wanted to get fit so I could race the next season. My friend had started “Moo Thai” a month or so earlier and he was loving it, he would go on about it to me for ages. I had some sort of idea about what it was as I had been to a few Kickboxing classes years earlier and i had wanted to learn how to fight properly to protect my self for some time but never got around to it. My friend was trying to get me to come do personal lessons with this guy at his house. I was like “yeah ill come” but I didn’t ever go i was to busy partying. After a while my friend ended up getting a heap of tickets to a fight show called Knees Of Fury in Adelaide, South Australia. I went with my friend and a few others from work. As soon as I walked in my eyes lit up it was so awesome with all the lights and the big ring in the middle, the atmosphere was amazing!! I sat down with my friends who were all drinking and carrying on at the time not really watching what was going on. I didn’t drink I was stuck to my seat I couldn’t take my eyes of these fighters. The way they held them selves up there in that ring and the way the crowd reacted to every punch and every kick they threw “Oi, Oi Oi” just had me on the edge of my seat. After a few fights I thought it can’t get any better than this but I was wrong when I seen two female fighters walk out to the ring! I was even more amazed when one of them was a girl named Heidi Giersch. Heidi was a girl I had known a few years earlier. These girls looked so fit and strong and they battled it out just like the guys but at a much faster pace. I couldn’t belive this girl that I knew was up there doing this crazy sport. It was at that moment when I seen those two females up there in that ring giving it everything that they had. They were throwing punches, kicks, knees and clinching and showing that females can fight just as good as the men. That was the moment I knew this is what im ment to do! If they can do it then so can I! After the show I was so excited and eager to learn “Moo Thai” I went to training with my friend about 2 weeks later. I was one of those people who said they wanted to fight before they had even trained but I was probably only one of a small amount that ever followed through with it. The motor cross bike was sold and the gloves were put on.
I now know that “Cows Moo, We Muay!” 🙂
So that was the story of my first real Muay Thai encounter and that is how my Muay Thai journey started 🙂 ❤
