  2. YOKKAO Next Generation Kids: The Search for Future Stars!

    YOKKAO Next Generation Kids: The Search for Future Stars!

    The YOKKAO NEXT GENERATION global initiative was launched in 2015, designed to discover talent in the new generation of Muay Thai fighters. The event has been on a continual mission to spot and groom young fight talents from around the world. Now, YOKKAO takes the concept one step further by expanding the search to kids from 5 up to 16 years old. Even today, Muay Thai is a sport that remains dominated by the native Thai fighters. A key reason for this phenomenon is that most of them start training at a very young age - often as young as 5 to 6 years old. Other than a fiercely competitive environment that breeds the best Muay Thai fighters of the world, starting young has given the Thai fighters an edge in developing their game. By the time they turn pro at 15, which is the minimum age for pro fighting in Thailand, they would already have accumulated over 100 fights.
