I was first introduced to Muay Thai in 2008, took a long break, and began training again when Justin opened Stay Fly Muay Thai in January of 2014.
I used to feel shy and intimidated when I first started training. I don't have an athletic background and I didn't play sports while growing up. I never viewed myself as tough or very competitive. But Muay Thai is for everyone, no matter what your age, gender, or experience level is.
Justin teaches all of his classes from a fighter's standpoint. And although I do not have aspirations of being a fighter and stepping in the ring, I can still learn and train like one here. I love learning new techniques, challenging myself in ways I never have, and being around an awesome squad while doing so.
My goals are to continue to train, learn as much as I can, and just have fun. I love being around the people who train here. The energy and dedication here at Stay Fly is truly inspiring no matter what your goals are.
I'm lucky to be around Muay Thai so much because of Justin. It's a beautiful sport and at SFMT, it brings an amazing community of people together. I'm so excited to see our team continue to grow!
