In this episode of the podcast, Eric & Vinny speak with USMF President Michael “Chase” Corley and Muaythai Youth Academy co-creator Patrick Rivera. Both of these gentlemen have played a major role in growing Muay Thai in the United States as well as pushing Muay Thai towards getting recognized by the USOC (United State Olympic Committee). Michael and Patrick both feel that the future of American Muaythai lies in establishing a template and/or path for our youth Muay Thai athletes to get prepared, from an early age, for both national and international competition. In this episode, we discuss the importance of the USMF’s Youth Development League, the upcoming Muaythai Youth Academy workshop at Patrick’s Valor Training Center in Stockton, California, and we also discuss the phenomena performance by 4 of America’s young female Muaythai athletes at a recent event in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Listen, learn, and believe, as the path to exponential growth of American Muay Thai is explained here on this podcast!
