Warriors Cup 11/4 - Stay Fly Muay Thai - Muay Thai Philadelphia

Howdy sports fans. This update is long overdue. Stay Fly Muay Thai is poised for some big exciting changes and the chaos surrounding them has taken much of our focus in preparation. Stay tuned for updates on our new schedule and programs we are offering. 
We wanted, however, to make sure that everyone out there in cyberspace heard about how well our boys did last week at the Warriors’ Cup in South Philly…
Both of our fighters, Mike Rakay and Calvin Au did amazing. 
First of our boys up was big Mike Rakay, who was pitted against Ian Clarke, from another top Philadelphia camp, Rami Elite. Mike fought and beat one of Ian’s teammates in his last outing, and felt excited at the opportunity to culling the herd of his division by taking another scalp this time out. His training was focused and extensive and it showed in the ring. His poise was excellent as he seemed to see everything his opponent attempted to swing at him. Firing off thunderous leg strikes, his opponent kept Mike at bay for the beginning moments of the fight. As Mike adjusted, he found his opponent’s jaw with hard strikes, especially a clean right hook that seemed to stumble the opposing fighter. He began mixing up his angles very well and keeping his ears open and reacting to what we called for in the corner. He ended the fight with a right hook followed with a right knee, followed with a straight right hand that folded his opponent to the canvas. The referee waved the fight off, only just over a minute after the opening bell. Mike improved his Muay Thai record to a pristine 3-0 with a dominant performance that made everyone in that room know that the 205 division is in some real trouble with Mike around.
Next up was Calvin Au, who was to face a gentleman named Mickey from my old coach’s camp, Cool Hearts Muay Thai. Calvin started the fight explosively with beautiful technique. I always explain that Calvin fights with the skillful technique and poise of a much more experienced fighter. He landed clean strikes throughout the fight, dominating his very strong, very game opponent from the opening bell. Calvin was very busy and relentless in his attacks. He threw great kicks and smashed with his punches, though his opponent never would retreat. Calvin slowed in the third round, not dominating as clearly as the first two rounds, but I thought he was still the fighter in control. He won a unanimous decision and improved his record to a perfect 2-0. 
Thank you to all of you who came out to support the dudes as they got in the ring. I can’t tell you how important it is to feel support from your team while you are in the ring. It means all the difference in the world. 

Our boys had a great showing that night and we’re excited to see both of them step back into the ring soon.

Our New Programs - Stay Fly Muay Thai - Philadelphia

We are now introducing our new programs at Stay Fly Muay Thai.

We have decided to offer 3 different memberships available at Stay Fly Muay Thai.   These memberships include our Built to Stay Fly program, Learn to Stay Fly, and Stay Fly Crew programs.  

The Built to Stay Fly program is designed to offer Muay Thai with a focus on fitness for the everyday person who wants to get stronger and leaner while increasing their cardiovascular fitness.  This program will include classes that are designed to keep heart rates high and build muscle.  Don't want to fight, but want to look the part? This is the program for you.

The Learn to Stay Fly program is designed to offer a very technical Muay Thai class that will equip the student with the tools of the sport.  The goal is to teach the students the subtle and complex art of 8 limbs.  This program will be technique heavy and teach the student to thoroughly understand combinations and subtlety that separates our style from the rest of the gyms with our extensive experience.  This is what sets us apart, our expertise and understanding of Muay Thai that is unparalleled.  

Lastly (and most excitingly) the Stay Fly Crew program will be a completely comprehensive training regimen. This program will include both the conditioning intense classes in the Built to Stay Fly program and the technique intense classes in the Learn to Stay Fly program, but will include some classes that are designed for the serious practitioner.  These classes will not be available for other students and will be the place that we look to do some sparring and clinching drills as well as some fight tactics and situational drills specific to competition.  

Additionally, in this Stay Fly Crew program, we will be looking to offer a goal based personally tailored training program. This will outline a recommended diet, strength and conditioning program, and schedule for training that is based in getting results based on personal goals.  

I'm really excited to be offering these new programs and can't wait to get things going.
