The Story

After competing at the 2017 TBA Classic - Muay Thai World Expo, Joey was selected to join the United States Muaythai Federation (USMF) Junior Team and will compete at the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (IFMA) Junior World Championships in Thailand, August 3-11, 2017. This event is officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as well as the Government of Thailand. Traveling along with Joey to corner his student, Pete will also be attending the IFMA Judges & Referee training course as well as the iGLA (extended knowledge of Muaythai) education system course.

This is a huge honor for Joey to be selected for the team and an incredible opportunity for Pete to have this chance to grow even more as a trainer and coach and bring this knowledge back to not only the United States but more specifically, the Midwest where Muaythai is just beginning its growth. 

Unfortunately, along with the experience comes the cost of the travel, training, lodging and other expenses. With the short notice of this invitation, we are finding the need for fundraising to make this dream a reality.  Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated, we are extremely thankful for all the support we are receiving.

Pete has some things to give back to those donating: 

Donate $300--get your 3'x4' banner up on the wall at RoundKick Gym for the rest of 2017.
Donate $500--get the same banner plus we will make a marketing post weekly, for your business, for the rest of 2017.

Pete will be offering private training. 
$500 gets you 15 1-hr. Personal sessions for fitness and/or Muay Thai or combatives.

Thank you, in advance, for supporting Joey and Pete.

Little video of Joey and Pete's experience.  This is just what I saw on social media and few pictures that we received.  I'm sure there are many more but we have yet to see them ourselves.  Once we do we will be sure to share.
