M-1 Grand Muay Thai Championship of America

October 22, 2011 Fighting, Sport No Comments

I was fortunate to score a pretty good view (1st row balcony) for THE Muay Thai event of the year at Club Nokia. So special was the event that they delayed the start of it a whole hour to ensure that they could broadcast it live to Thailand… so there I sat…. with a cup of Oban 14-year scotch.

Well, the fight card was pretty amazing and was really worth the wait. The promoters matched up some of America’s best with some of Thailand’s great kick boxers. Specifically, Kevin Ross was going to seek redemption against Sakkedao Petchpayathai, while Joe Schilling was going to elevate American Muay Thai by knocking out Kaoklai Kaennorsing….that was the plan.

International Fight Showdown 8 – Friend Won!

Yesterday, Kickboxer participated in the IFS Cup: Muay Thai 8-man Elimination Tournament in Pico Rivera.

Twelve seconds into the first round (picture above), Kickboxer landed a clean high left kick to his opponent’s head, sending him down to the canvas for the count. After almost 10 seconds, the bearded guy foolishly got up to continue the match. … Continue Reading

Replaced Sidi 4-hole Reinforcement Plates

Since getting the Sidi Dragon biking shoes, I’ve been using them almost everyday, not for actual mountain biking, mind you, but for Spinning, or rather Studio Cycling (that’s what my gym calls the class). You know, indoor, group exercise class on a stationary bike……Um, yea… I know that these professional-grade shoes are way over the top for indoor bike class, but heck, they look cool!

Anyways, during this time, to clip in to the pedals at the gym, I attached to the soles, a pair of Shimano SPD SH-51 cleats that I received for free from purchasing my previous biking shoes. Though the SH-51s (lateral release), in my opinion, are inferior to the SH-56s (multi-directional release), I didn’t think it would affect my spinning experience, or really matter. They were made by the same company, as well as looked pretty much the same. And, these shoes were going to primarily perform indoors.

For the most part, my experience with the Shimano SH-51s were okay. They allowed me to clip in to the bike pedals and kept me secure. However, the daily clipping and lateral-unclipping of the shoes took a toll on the reinforcement plates, and eventually, stripped out a thread….

Rivera – Yum!

Last night, PR girl and I had fancy Mexican food at one of my favorite restaurants, Rivera.

Looking back at old blog posts, I realize that it’s been a year and half since I’ve been back!

Sidi Dragon 2 Carbon SRS in a shiny Red

At the moment, these bad boys are the top top-of-the line pair of mountain biking shoes out on the market.  They do look like they’re made of patent leather, but really, it’s a fabric called Lorica. It’s supposed to look and feel like leather, but be waterproof at the sametime.

You can’t see it from this angle, but the sole is made of carbon, and is entirely replaceable. In fact, the SRS in the name stands for Sole Replacement System. However, more than the sole, the company makes spare parts for pretty much everything on the shoe.
