Hua Hin Championship is an international Muay tournament, organized by a famous gym in Thailand
It is known that Mr. Steve started practicing Muay in 1984, before opening his own gym in 1993. During his career, he won the European championship and 4 times the British champion.
Despite being over 60, Mr. Steve still maintains regular exercise. He hopes the recent title can inspire young people to practice sports.
“I started learning Muay for self-defense. I used to practice in my room before coming to Thailand. I train there twice a week before the competition day. I hope to be able to continue training and competing. In the future, I also teach my life experiences to my family and students so that they know how to overcome difficulties in life.”
In the coming time, Mr. Steve said he will continue to teach at his gym. He is also willing to listen to invitations to play.
