ROAR Combat League – Results

Following last night’s event, ROAR Combat League would like to thank everyone involved in making it happen. From the gyms and fighters to the team of staff and helpers who helped create what was a superb event. Feedback from people that attended the show has been phenomenal with some describing it as the most entertaining show they have ever seen.

Special mention to Christian Knowles and Katie Rishover who have created a fantastic brand that sets a high bar for Muay Thai. Also Steven Broome for helping set the stage. Finally everyone that supports our events, a big thank you. ROAR Combat League are truly blessed with the atmosphere that Edgbaston Stadium fans create. Many of you buy tickets every event and it is, I believe, a standout show and unique crowd.

Next event is April 6th and the wheels are already in motion for what promises to be a special Roar Combat League 🔥

LEIGH EDLIN WROTE:

Two great performances so far – Toon just lost to a more experienced opponent after a fantastic battle and Ces achieved a unanimous win using sharp teeps, round kicks and sharp knees. Very proud!

Sam Hyde didn’t get the result last night. He put on a great show against an extremely tough opponent but most definitely did not show his A game. Not taking anything away from Cian as he is clearly a great fighter with a huge fight career ahead of him. As you would expect Sam is cutting through his disappointment with a champion mentality, already planning his next steps as he becomes the fighter I know he can be.

Funniest moment of the day – pre post fight interview, Sam stopped the interviewer so he could get a drink as he “didn’t want to sound like that Simon Forrest on camera”. We all had a laugh and heard from the Roar presenter how post weigh in interviews will be no more due to the gibberish incident… legendary!!

Two New Kru’s!

‘Kru’ is Thai for teacher. In Thai culture, teachers are held in high esteem. They are celebrated on Wai Kru day where students perform a ritual to show respect to their teachers.

In the 12 years that Chao Phraya Lincoln has been open to the public, there have only been 4 students that have achieved the Kru grade. Paul (Staffy) and Darren have clocked up 15 years of experience between them and have shown Steve, Brian and I that they have the knowledge and ability to teach others.

I am very proud to lead the Chao Phraya Muay Thai academy and alongside Kru Steve, Brian, Paul (Staffy) and Darren we will provide an even better place to learn the amazing art of Muay Thai. We have built a very special and diverse community that forges warriors while making everyone feel welcome.

Chok dee (good luck) Staffy and Darren.

Odeon_Lincoln

We have been asked by the Odeon Cinema in Lincoln if we would do a Muay Thai Display in the foyer for the opening nights of the film!

Kickboxer_Vengeance

We are thinking of doing a mixture of Pad Work, Sparring & Muay boran. We would allocate our students time slots to come along and take part. We are looking for males, females and children boxers of all levels of experience to take part in display. This is a fantastic opportunity to promote our club and our amazing martial art!!

Let us know me know if you are interested by emailing us by August 31st 2016: sales@lincolnthaiboxing.co.uk

Smelly Gloves?

Smelly Gloves

TOP TIPS

  1. Don’t leave in your bag
  2. Put in well-ventilated area
  3. Use an anti-bacterial spray
  4. Newspaper to absorb sweat
  5. Fabric softener sheet
  6. Smells nice again!!

…………………………..

HERE’S HOW!!

1. Don’t leave in your bag

Your hot, dark, damp, sweaty training bag is the perfect breeding for bacteria. If you just leave your gloves in your bag after each training or sparring session, you’ll find your gloves smell more and more. If you do nothing else, take them out of your bag when you get home.

2. Put in well-ventilated area

This can be in a utility room, garage, shed or conservatory with decent air circulation. Mesh bags can be great for carrying your gear that can be used to hang your stuff to dry it out. The main thing is that the gloves need to be completely dried out so the bacteria has no moisture in which to breed.

3. Use an anti-bacterial spray

Before hanging your gloves to dry, you can help kill the bacteria by using an anti-bacterial Febreeze spray or something similar.

4. Newspaper to absorb sweat

Add a few sheets of screwed up newspaper into each glove, this will help take out all the sweat and moisture out of the gloves.

5. Fabric softener sheet

Best tip of all… buy some cheap fabric softener sheets! Put them in the gloves around the newspaper to start to get rid of the smells. Then when your going to use the gloves again, rub the sheets around the inside of the gloves for extra freshness.

6. Smells nice again!!

Your boxing gloves are one of those things that tend to start smelling really bad over time, especially if you work hard! They are a massive breeding ground for bacteria and over time it can get really bad, so bad that other students will avoid sparring with you!! So don’t be that Muay Thai Fighter… follow the above and everyone will still love you!!!
