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.

Here are just a few of many messages I have received from people throughout my journey so far. It’s mad the amount of love I receive and words of encouragement and thanks for just spreading a little positivity around. It’s a crazy rollercoaster of events we’re all on, why not make it as entertaining as possible, eh? Thanks to these guys for messages me with such kind words and to everyone else too! I do try to reply to every single message that comes through my inboxes so you will get a reply if you send one in :).
Northern Kings is a Muay Thai gym run by Craig Jose and his team. Made up of world champions and actively ranked UK competitive fighters. It’s a great place to train, everyone works incredibly hard but is more than welcoming to anyone and everyone who is willing to walk through the door. To me, it is a home away from home, the lads and lasses there are my family. I’d love to see you come along, get at me if you do so I can say hello. Alternatively, if you would like me to fight on your show, then contact Craig, I just play my fighters duties and say yes to fighting haha.
