  4. 1 – 1 Draw For Manachai

    1 – 1 Draw For Manachai

    In a tough fight yesterday afternoon at Omnoi Stadium in Bangkok, YOKKAO’s youngest fighter Manachai lost on points to Poneak, a fighter who Manachai beat one year ago. It was tough weight cut this time around for the young YOKKAO athlete, after accepting a fight at a weight lower than he used to fighting at, which resulted in a lack of energy in the 4th round. Not one to be brought down by a loss, Manachai will be back stronger, determined, and more dominate than ever. YOKKAO would like to thank everyone for your ongoing support, and make sure to follow Manachai’s training and continued progress on all YOKKAO social media outlets. Facebook, Instagram, our new Snapchat account, Facebook Live, and Periscope powered by Twitter.

  9. Modern Warrior Conditioning with the YOKKAO Fight Team!

    Modern Warrior Conditioning with the YOKKAO Fight Team!

    YOKKAO Team fighters take their fighting very serious, so of course their strength & conditioning is taken seriously too. Where many Muay Thai camps and fighters are still carrying on in older, outdated training traditions, the YOKKAO Fight Team is making sure they keep up with the modern science of strength & conditioning. As we can see in the pictures of todays conditioning session, having a solid yet dynamic training regimen is very important for all the fighters, and each exercise has a specific set of qualities they improve. Deadlifts as performed by Singdam, are one of the best exercises at developing total body strength, and posterior chain development. Saenchai is performing the ‘Turkish Getup’, an exercise that really targets the entire core, and helps to develop increased shoulder strength, along with shoulder range of motion and stability. Manachai is on the ‘Battle Ropes’, a series of exercises made popular in MMA S&C that are excellent for
