Mixed Martial Arts is a new thing to Thailand – however it has grown at a pace that is TRULY amazing. MMA Gyms have popped up in Phuket, Chian Mai, Bangkok and beyond.
The key essense has been muay thai / boxing and brazilian jiu jitsu.
That is fantastic, however Wrestling seems to be one key that has been lacking a little. With maybe 1 or 2 gyms having any wrestling.
Now Phuket Top Team in conjunction with ThailandWrestling.com is introducing Sambo/Collegiate/Freestyle wrestling to the MMA program.
So stay Tuned and watch this spot for more Wrestling news & video clips !
