Barcroft Media Outlet, operating 52 magazines worldwide has been at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp the last couple days doing interviews and filming the the training camp on a special being run on former MMA program trainer Alex Reid. Alex has beeen in the headlines recently with his showing on “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 on Spike TV and he has been linked to dating U.K. celebrity Katie Price.
“Alex was the first real professional to come into our MMA training program at a time when MMA was still mostly unknown here in Thailand,” said Will McNamara, owner of Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Training Camp.
“I was so impresses with Alex and his attitude. A pure professional and dedicated to MMA, Alex trained our guests in MMA for 2-hours twice each day and then had no problem doing 10-15 rounds of Muay Thai with our professional Thai Boxing instructors. What impressed me the most was his physical conditioning. Alex would train harder than any student he had, not to impress, but to impress upon the guests what it takes to make it to the top of the MMA fighters list,” said McNamara
Will Elliot, who has been coming to Tiger Muay Thai the last 5-years before finally accepting a job as general manager of the training camp remembered training with Alex Reid.
“Alex was such a professional from his diet to his training. He had a big influence on my style of MMA fighting when I came here and trained with him in ground-n-pound. When I went back home and trained with my usual partners they could immediatly see improvement in my fight game thanks to training with Alex Reid,” said Elliot.
Alex is due to return to Tiger Muay Thai and MMA in 2010 for some training and giving and MMA seminar for our guests. Alex is a fighter for London Shoot fighters, a popular gym in London that has sent many fighters out to Tiger Muay Thai and MMA in Phuket, Thailand.
