NEW KRU IN THE HOUSE

Get to know FaMA's newest instructor, Kru Bryan, and his martial arts journey in this Q&A.


1. How did you find Muay Thai?


I first picked up Muay Thai at the age of 12 because I was picked on for being a tiny guy when I was younger. I chose Muay Thai because it is the art of eight limbs, and learned to be a complete fighter by using your hands, legs, elbows and knees. My passion for it grew and I fell in love with it and my journey began.


2. Tell us about your experiences training in Thailand.


Training in Thailand was tough. I had to endure the heat, the intensity, the cultural differences and especially the language barrier. After a few visits I started to live in Thailand to train and compete full-time.

3. Tell us about your experiences competing in Thailand.


Competing in Thailand was even tougher. The standards are much higher compared to competing in Singapore. I felt constant pressure to win every competition mentally and physically.


4. What is your philosophy or style for teaching Muay Thai?


Self-control, respect for others and a positive perspective to strive for the best in life.

5. How does Muay Thai help students who are not interested in fighting?


Muay Thai is excellent for stress relief, and lower stress levels means you’ll be able to concentrate better outside the gym. It's also helps to build mental toughness. Being pushed beyond your limits.

6. What is your approach to teaching kids Muay Thai?


Kids have very short attention spans but if you can engage them and keep them interested they will like you and like the sport. So my approach is to make the kids like me and connect with them through interactive Muay Thai skills.

7. What has been your experience with the FaMA community?


FaMA is a plalce that treats everyone equally and makes me feel like this is not just a gym, it's a FAMILY!


8. What do you hope to achieve while teaching at FaMA?


My hope is to help develeop the community in our Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, FaMA Fit and Kids Martial Arts programs as well as assisting FaMA to continue growing.
