I was just looking for a martial arts, I guess I’ve always been interested in martial arts. Definitely always been interested in stand-up boxing, kickboxing type martial arts. I never really thought Muay Thai was something that I’d be able to train in, I didn’t
realize that there were Muay Thai schools out there.
0:25 – Yeah, I mean I guess I was always an athlete in like high school, but I never did anything in college. Pounds came on afterwards, and I was looking for a workout and I’m not like, the normal gym. It’s get too mundane and boring for me.
0:41 – I feel like all the other martial arts are kind of cookiecutter, I don’t know how you want to describe it, but it’s all generic, it’s all like, cut and paste type stuff, whereas Muay Thai is real martial arts, and it’s real legit fighting. You could be as serious about it as you want, or you could be as casual about it as you want, you’re still going to get a good
I feel like there’s always something more to learn, there’s always going to be somebody better than you, there’s always something new to learn. You’re never going to be a master at this, until never. There’s always new to learn.

There was a point in time where I didn’t throw any kicks, and it’s Muay Thai. There’s always going to be different breakthroughs. I don’t know if I can narrow down one particular accomplishment.
1:40 – WHY HER DAUGHTER DOES MARTIAL ARTS: I always wanted to do martial arts for her, and I thought ju-jitsu was actually perfect, because again, it’s not really related to size, everything is very much technique and skill, so I wanted to get her involved in something like that.
1:55 – It’s definitely a skill everybody can learn, it can be I guess a little intimidating at first, until you get in there and try it out and realize that it’s not as bad as it seems. I think that there are people from all demographics here, including the coaches. You’ve got professionals and even I think stay-at-home moms. So, everybody is just really great, as far as helping, and nobody’s that meathead muscle-head type that’s too scary or completely not approachable. It’s a little bit of everybody.
I don’t know that there are any [limitations], I mean, dedication, I mean, interest in doing something new.
Q: Do they need to be in shape, is there an age that you would recommend?
A: You’ll definitely get in shape, but it’s something for everybody. We’ve got little kids and old people here.
