Saenchai PKmuaythaigym Making the Move to Kickboxing on June 16


Saenchai PKmuaythaigym is one of those rare fighters that I believe could be successful in any combat sport, regardless of the ruleset or discipline. For a while now, people have clamored to see him take on some of kickboxing’s best, but the idea of one of the greatest nak muays of our generation switching sports has remained little more than wistful thinking.

Finally, it’s happening.

On June 16, 2013, Saenchai PKmuaythaigym will be making his kickboxing debut against Yosuke Mizuochi in Nagoya Japan. Mizuochi, a WPMF Japan and Krush fighter, was one of the biggest breakout stars of Japan back in 2011, and currently holds the #13 ranked WBC lightweight ranking.

The two will be locking horns during the Hoost Cup; a card which also set to feature former K-1 star Yoshihiro Sato, and flamboyant Japanese favorite Yuichiro Nagashima.

While Saenchai’s move into kickboxing might mark the beginnings of a new career on the international stage, it also might very like be a one-and-done type situation. It would be fascinating to see Saenchai fighting on Krush (and possibly GLORY) cards, but it’s best not to get our hopes up just yet.

    Well to me Martial Arts means respect and discipline.
    I have trained in different Martial arts now for well over twenty years.
    I have seen much people come and go but one other thing that I have noticed happens to
    be the respect and discipline which has changed those peoples perception of life.

    Infants that have started which were on the wrong side of the
    tracks, always in trouble and no idea how to respect other kids.
    Put them in a controlled environment with discipline and fighting and they soon start to understand.

    Martial arts is one method for kids in their teens and adults to get rid of their aggression without hurting or bullying anyone.
