Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bill and I currently bored out of my mind here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Everyday is the same. I wake up mid-afternoon, stumble out of bed, flick my laptop on and make my way downstairs for some breakfast while I wait for the computer to load. I’ll eat, check my email, waste some time on msn, check a few forums – all super exciting stuff. A few hours will pass, I’ll eat again, head to the gym (highlight of my day), then it’s right back home for a whole lot more of nothing until I go to bed. Yup, I’m really living the dream.

You’re prob. thinking – just get a job you lazy bastard! Well, I do have a job. I work security at a nightclub here 3 nights a week. I’m not going to lie. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of the sloppy-looking drunk girls. I’m sick of metrosexual gino-juicepigs with tight shirts and big ego’s. I’m sick of the whole scene really. I’m stuck in a rut and it’s time for a change.

You’re probably thinking I have a really negative outlook on things. Well, it’s true – I do. But I wasn’t always like this. This negative outlook really started when I got back from Thailand last December. I went there for 3 months to train Thai-boxing and it was the greatest time of my life. The training, the beaches, the food, the people and of course, I’m not gonna front – the girls! You go there and it’s a complete role-reversal. In the western world, a hot girl is in total control when it comes to the dating scene. She’s hot, she holds the cards, she knows it and she uses it to her full advantage. Guys with these girls will often feel like they’re walking on eggshells when they’re with them as they know they can easily be replaced in a matter of minutes.

Well, in Thailand, it’s a complete role reversal. YOU become the hot girl so to speak. You walk around and legions of hot Asian girls attempt to get your attention. “Handsome man” ” You very lovely” – admiration like that is what you hear pretty much everywhere you go, everyday you’re there.

And the training, I just have one word for the training – amazing! Muay Thai is meant to be learned in Thailand. There’s really no substitute. I was there for 3 months and I was really impressed with how I was progressing. Then, I come back to Canada and injure my back at the gym. I haven’t trained since and I miss it. Well, my back is better, I’m missing Thailand, I’m super depressed and basically, I’m going to do something about it. So I’ve decided – I’M GOING BACK!

This time, I’ll be documenting all the adventures. The training (of course) but not only that. For everyone that has thought about going to Thailand to train but have never had the chance, I will give you the opportunity to get an inside look at what it’s like. You’ll witness the training, you’ll witness the girls, you’ll get a sense of the culture, the food, the people. And trust me, I will not censor my experiences for the purpose of this blog.

Thailand here I come!!

Stay tuned,

It’s going to be a wild ride..

THINKING OF GOING TO THAILAND TO TRAIN?

I’ve developed a 70 page guide that profiles everything you need to know about training in Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya. In the manual, I discuss the visa issues, the Muay Thai camps, the different areas, the transportation, the food, the culture and customs, the girls, the scams, the safety issues and most importantly, how to save a ton of cash along the way!

  1. haha I fully understand you… I went two times one month (in december and now in june) and each time I come back to Switzerland (my homeplace) everything looses it sense… don’t know what I’m doing here… My last trip to chiang mai was a dream… 5-6hours of training a day, everything so cheap, like 20baht for a good meal (about 0.65 dollars),… well I don’t need to explain, you wrote it exaclty as it is…

    Now I’m just saving some 9-10 grands and just go there for a year to start.

    Well, wish you good luck, I’ll be following your adventures 😉

  2. I just found your blog. I am starting to read it from the beginning. I just finished the first entry. I am jealous. I am much older (I assume you are a young guy) and am to embedded in my career/family to go on any extended sabbatical to Thailand.

    I just got back from an 8 month business trip to the Philippines. While there I studied Filipino martial arts. I really enjoyed the stickfighting part and every Tuesdays (stickfight day) was also pretty cool. I would say that Filipino stickfighting techniques are the best in the world, IMO.

    I wish when I was younger I would have “found” Thailand and spent time doing what you are doing. I have always enjoyed martial arts….and although never the best, I was always good. I love to spar/fight (in the ring, lol) and whether I would win or lose I always enjoyed it.

    I will be changing jobs next year and will take a 4 month break in between. My plan is to spend 2 months in Thailand and 2 months in Philippines. I can not wait.

    Enjoy yourself. Someday you too will have career/family concerns that may limit your time overseas….so enjoy it while you can, dude. Take care, be safe!

    I am going to read the rest of your blog.

  4. “Well, in Thailand, it’s a complete role reversal. YOU become the hot girl so to speak. You walk around and legions of hot Asian girls attempt to get your attention.”

    That is so true.

    It’s sort of a curse as it makes you cynical, jaded, and ruined (about women, dating, etc) when you return back home after spending an extended amount of time here.

  5. I too miss Thailand. I went for the first time in 2006 for 2 weeks and again in 2007 for 2 weeks. Thailand has changed my life! And it helps that my wife is Thai-Isaan. 🙂 I’ll be going back in May of 2009 for 3 months of training, fighting, partying and the beaches. I can’t wait. California to Thailand again.

  6. Been following your blog for a couple years now. Just went back to read everything again from the start, haha! Love what you’re doing out there man. I miss Thailand deeply. You’re my way of continuing to experience it. All the best.
