Watch – Fight Study (Muay Thai)

Singdam YOKKAOSaenchaiGym Vs Craig Coakley

This fight was recommended by our Head Trainer Mitch.  IQ vs aggression is the theme here with two very different styles competing for dominance.

What to watch for: Singdams shot selection vs Coakley’s pressure and aggression.

Even if you don’t do Muay Thai, it’s worth watching how Singdam uses his knowledge of the rules and scoring system against Coakleys relentless pressure and variety of attacks to deal damage.
