The A.I.M. Academy held a Muay Boran and Krabi Krabong Training Day on 5 February 2012.
Some of our A.I.M. Academy seminars are based on traditional or classical Filipino Martial Arts, and others have a strong emphasis on realistic street-defence, or Reality-Based Self-Defence.
This time, we focused on the more fun & spectacular aspects of martial arts!

Our Muay Boran & Krabi Krabong Training Day covered:
Special thanks to Andrew Steen of Geelong BJC Everlasting Muay Thai, Wesley Don & Ben White of Crew Muay Thai, and Warren Ross of Blizzard Martial Arts for supporting our event!
“Thanks once again for an awesome day!
Wes and I have had many years experience in training in the art of Muay Thai but have never been exposed to the ancient form of this art. It was great to learn how Muay Thai has evolved.
Rob, Kacey and Mark were warmly welcoming and made the training engaging, informative and most of all fun!
We are definitely looking forward to the next one and highly recommend it to others.
Chok Dee, Ben and Wes”
– Ben White & Wesley Don, Crew Muay Thai
“I had a great day! The training day was very informative and enjoyable. Everybody involved with the teaching on the day did a fantastic job. The lessons were set out well and flowed into each other seamlessly.
It also reinforced lessons from the last few years about range and distance and the importance of footwork and how to bridge distance effectively.”
– Rick Holmes, Geelong BJC Everlasting Muay Thai
