AAHHHHH stars in my eyes!!..... I remember it like it was yesterday, the feeling of being on a Muay Thai holiday with nothing in mind but train, train, and travel. This was before Tiger Muay Thai was the biggest gym in Phuket, only a couple rings, 10-15 trainers, everything surrounded by the jungle and the ONLY place to meet with friends and eat was MOMMAZ.
2008 was my 2nd trip out to Thailand, everything was still so new, (LOL I was still young) everyday was a holiday, a special day, I'd wake up to the Roosters yelling at me, the little lizards making that annoying noise and the Burmeese cleaning staff sweeping outside my bungalow with their wooden brooms. Everyday at Tiger was a special one, I would arrive at the camp and all the trainers would yell "Tigerrrrr", the training was FAR from soft-core the insane 3 hour training sessions were intense, the trainers were always there yelling at you pushing your body, mind and man hood to the limit.
Looking back at everything, the good, the bad, the ugly and the few near death experiences I had makes me think "what if I never took that step to come to Thailand to train Muay Thai", where would I be?. Look where I am now!, I cant beleive it, im now living here in Phuket married to Muay Thai and a beautiful Thai wife.
To all the great people I have met, became good friends with, some I see here yearly, some I exchange emails with a few times a year and some I lose contact with, thats the sad part about living out here your friends come and go all 2 often. But to the ones I may never see again, I will never forget the times we had and you have made a permanent mark in my life.
Durning my 2nd stay at Tiger I decided to document all my experiences with blog videos and highlight reels, using nothing but my little picture camera and window movie maker, thats how it ALL started. I would return home with post Thailand depression and I would look at all my vidoes and pictures everyday till I would return to the land of smiles :).. Then came the "IDEA" of Capture the Moment - D-Bauchery Films
