This past weekend, The Cellar Gym had 11 fighters travel to Des Moines, Iowa to compete at the 2018 TBA Muay Thai World Expo. In addition to being a record breaking year with 800 registered competitors, it was also the 50th anniversary of Grand Master Ajarn Chai bringing Muay Thai to the United States. It is an honor to watch the sport of Muay Thai continue to grow as a result of dedicated fighters and coaches!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our team fought 25 times over the weekend! We won 17 of these fights and had 8 fighters make it to the finals. This was a HUGE accomplishment and we are so proud of our team! Regardless of the outcome, each fighter won a battle by simply stepping into the ring and we could not be more impressed by each of them!
