In this episode of The Striking Corner we discuss the hot topic of what exactly is keeping our beloved sports of Muay Thai and Kickboxing from growing in America and we sit down with a very exciting, young and upcoming fighter from California, Victor Saravia.
Victor’s drive, desire, and focus on becoming one of the best in the sport is evident in the way Victor speaks and carries himself. Honestly, he is that rare breed of athlete that is so ultra focused on his goals that, as an observer, you feel just as confident in his ultimate success, as he does.
This young man is destined for some truly great things in the sport. If you haven’t heard of or seen Victor fight, here is your chance to get to know him and meet him. Trust us when we say that he will be household name in this sport very very soon.
I had the chance to speak with Sean Fagan on the Muay Thai Guy podcast recently about MY journey through Muay Thai and how The Striking Corner evolved into what it is today. Sean is a great guy who has always been very supportive of what we do here at The Striking Corner so it was an honor to be on his podcast and just talk about our love for Muay Thai, the current state of the sports of Muay Thai and Kickboxing in the US and so much more. I was the person being interviewed for a change…and I have to say that it isn’t that easy to be the one answering the questions. Listen, enjoy, comment, share!
