On March 21-22 Chris Cichon participated in a Muay Thai workshop lead by Thai boxing legends Saekson Janjira and Samart. The two day seminar was held at Trainers Elite in Fitchburg, WI and covered fundamentals of Muay Thai, conditioning drills, and a ranking test at the completion of the seminar. Chris Cichon and his brother Jon Cichon were two of three students promoted to the second rank in Saekson’s system. Saekson will be returning to the Midwest July 25-27 as part of a 3 day, 21 hour seminar lead by 3 martial arts legends.
