‘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.

You may have heard that there is a remake of KICKBOXER the movie… which is actually little to do with kickboxing – it’s more Muay Thai!!
30th September 2016 – Evening
1st October 2016 – Evening
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!
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or any questions, please ask below…
- Don’t leave in your bag
- Put in well-ventilated area
- Use an anti-bacterial spray
- Newspaper to absorb sweat
- Fabric softener sheet
- Smells nice again!!
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!!!
