Brooklyn Monk, Antonio Graceffo travels to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he trains Muay Thai at Boxx Warriors. Owner Kirsty Dzulkarnain explains how she based her program on the best training and fighting she found in Thailand. Her Thai husband, Saksit Chosipasert, a Muay Thai Champion, and now a military officer, was also instrumental in helping her start Boxx Warriors. No pushover, Kirsty runs the gyms three locations herself, recruiting the best trainers from Thailand. “If they don’t train the people well, I send them home, back to Thailand.” said Kirsty.
The training and teaching at Boxx Warriors was some of the best Muay Thai training, Antonio has ever had. “Gyms in Thailand are convenient because they are always open and there are so many teachers available to take you on the pads, but they often don’t teach or give actual instructions. The trainers at Boxx Warriors really helped me with proper foot placement and body mechanics.” Said Antonio.
