THE BACK STORY
A brief history of how WAKT started
In the Summer of 1994 Al moved from Newmarket to Newquay.
He’d previously trained Muay Thai at Cobra Thai in London. But mainly with World Champion Nigel Thompson in Bedford and Cambridge.
Unable to find a Thai Boxing gym in Cornwall, he decided to start one. After an extensive poster campaign (remember, this is pre-internet). The first WAKT class in November 1994 had one student turn up to train, and another to watch.
Al managed to talk the spectator into training, and the first class of WAKT Thai Kickboxing Cornwall was up and running.
By 1999 Al was arranging the first WAKT trip to Thailand. It was via hand written letter and fax to the now World famous Thakoon Pongsupha at Sasiprapa Gym.
In fact WAKT were the first to ever take foreign (non Thai) females to train at Sasiprapa in the year 2000. This even made the newspapers and Thai T.V.
Thailand is literally now a second home to us and our Muay Thai is authentic and from the heart.
