Island Muay Thai on Koh Tao

// October 8th, 2010 // No Comments » // Outside Venture, Sports

What’s up everyone? Tom here.
I’ve decided to take off and take a month long trip down south to Koh Tao. The island is world renown for it’s diving schools and beautiful beaches. But I came here to solely do muay thai for a month and get away from the rest of the world. It’s been just over a week already that I’m here and it’s been pretty intense this whole time. I’ve only done muay thai when I’m on holidays so to be totally immersed in it this time is really fun.

The team fully assembled on the Helipad on top of my building

In July of 2010, over a dozen Parkour/Freerunning enthusiasts traveled to Thailand for what has become an annual event. You would think that all the civil unrest concerning Thailand merely a month before would deter them from coming, but not this group of adventurers. This band of merry travelers included practitioners from England, Australia, France, and Germany, all of whom thought it appropriate to set up camp in my modest 2 bed room apartment. This was cause for considerable discomfort on my behalf, but was a small price to pay in exchange for the experiences we shared.
Over 4 weeks they traveled to almost every corner of the country, from top to toe. From Chiang Mai, to Ton Sai, even venturing into Cambodia. They moved through cities, temples, beaches, and forests, taking in all the sights and taking every new location as an opportunity to train and share their passion for movement.
This group, with a moderate grasp of the native tongue, quickly dubbed themselves TEAM FARANG, but i much prefer to refer to them as my Farang-tourage.

Children of the Forest

// August 22nd, 2010 // 3 Comments » // Uncategorized

Slightly off-topic, but it a necessary follow-up from my rickity bridge post a few weeks back. The documentary that Kevin (director, editor, man-behind-the-camera for Venture Show among other things) and I went to film in Sangkhlaburi is fully online now. Please do take a moment of your time to view it.
We want to make sure that people are watching it and understand what is going on around Thailand’s borders at the moment. I am really glad I got to go on the trip to meet these wonderful children as well as shake hands with the men that started it all. It truly is moving and things are getting better and brighter for the Children of the Forest.
