Joined World Muay Thai Council (WMC) in 2001
Qualified Judge and Referee with World Muay Thai Council (WMC)
I promoted a very big Muay Thai event in 2006 in Adelaide “No Escape”under which had International fighters and Australian fighters. It was a successful event.
Joined World Muay Thai Organisation (WMO) in June 2015 after speaking with GM Sirisompan Sent Australian Team to WMO Championships in Bangkok 2016, 2017 and 2018 with every year getting a bigger team.
2 Gold Medals in 2017 and 3 Gold Medals in 2018
I have trained my students to become World Champions, Australian and State Champions.
I am very excited to say that Mr Jamie Tozeland and myself both are in discussions to promote WMO events in Queensland in 2019. These will include having WMO Australian Championships for selection for the Australian team in 2020 as well as having events where we can bring Thai fighters versus Australian fighters for a big show. We both hope to get many junior fighters for the Muay Boran and Adults for the Pro- Am and Pros at our events here in 2019. I am very excited to get this happening as so far it’s been a struggle with the governments in South Australia and New South Wales. Once we get a show set, we will contact WMO head office and let them know all details of the event. We will also have a Website done and have a raking system so people can fight for WMO State and Australian titles.
I am hoping to bring GM Chinawut or GM Kevin to Adelaide to run a Muay Boran and WMO Referee and Judges course in 2019 to get the ball rolling.
Thank you for your time.
