Episode 91 – Jeff Dojillo

In this episode of The Striking Corner, we speak with Muay Thai photographer extraordinaire, Jeff Dojillo. If you are a fan of Muay Thai and follow the sport, chances are you have seen Jeff’s work. Jeff is a professional photographer that luckily for the Muay Thai community fell in love with the sport and has used his talent to capture the beauty of Muay Thai and showcase it to the world.

Aside from photography, Jeff is now also the Chief Brand Officer for the USMF and helps them with everything from social media to digital marketing. In addition, Jeff has decided to put together a Muay Thai documentary covering Team USA as they compete in the upcoming IFMA World Muaythai Championships in Bangkok. But he needs the help of the Muay Thai community to raise the funds…and that is where we all have to lend a helping hand! Listen, learn, and if you can donate!

Episode 85 – Matt Lucas

In this episode of The Striking Corner, we speak with writer, fighter, and a total pain in Eric’s ass, Matt Lucas!

Matt currently lives in Thailand where he works as a fight commentator for Max Muay Thai and the Social Media Manager for Fairtex. Matt truly lives and breathes the sport of Muay Thai so we decided to speak with him about the current state of Muay Thai in Thailand, his perspective on the growth and current direction of American Muay Thai, the growth of promotions like One Championship and Max Muay Thai…and much more!

Matt jumped on the podcast as a replacement for a guest that had to reschedule and we ended up having a great episode. Matt is still disappointed by Eric’s perpetual lack of commitment and Eric still thinks Matt is a pain in the ass…but what are friends for? Enjoy!

Episode 20 – Matt Lucas

In this episode of The Striking Corner, Eric speaks with author, fighter, and Muay Thai blooger, Matt Lucas.  Matt recently published his first Muay Thai novel titled “The Boxer’s Soliloquy”.  The book is a quick and fun read which we obviously highly recommend! Matt discusses the reasons he decided to write the book, the inspiration behind it, and his not so distant plans to move to Bangkok and continue learning and covering the sport from Thailand.  We talk about how Muay Thai is so much more than fighting and “sport”.  We truly enjoyed having Matt on the show.  Enjoy!
