Welcome to Fat Lad's website

Here I will share my experiences throughout my time exploring the beautiful art of Muay Thai. You will be able to come, get educated, be entertained and purchase merchandise, fight tickets and more!

I have been presented with a unique opportunity to go and live and train in Thailand for 4 weeks. I have won a spot at True 8 Muay Thai on Koh Samui with my accommodation, food and training all paid for, all I need to cover is my normal life while I’m away and my travel expenses to get there and back! I am building sponsorship packages for businesses to get involved but I received messages from people asking how they could get involved personally. Hence the JustGiving page.

I am appealing to all the beautiful members of my community to try and help me in this life changing adventure and to make this dream a reality. I need to raise some funds that is going to help me purchase the flights, arrange extra childcare and support my family while I aren’t around working and bringing the money that I normally would be. This would be a very good way to accelerate my skillset and give me a once-in-a-lifetime chance to share the true life of a fighter in Thailand.

Bro, there’s a lot that's special about you, I think you’re f*ckin’ ace to be honest. A bit like me… putting yourself out there and just doing your thing. I’d love to have you on board as an ambassador (FATLAD20 for 20% off your order)
I can’t tell you how much respect I have for you right now mate. It’s easy to talk about things when everything is good but it takes a powerful man to share when things to not go to plan. You’re my hero. I love you bro!
The inspiration you give is just amazing man. You taught me something, when we fought at Victory 5 we both lost, I was really disappointed how I fought. After, I saw you enjoying the moment even, if you lost you was still happy to be there and after with family. That’s motivated me to be happy because I challenge myself again and do something which not everyone can do and I was proud of myself..thanks brother 🙏
