This past weekend Sitan Gym AZ had four fighters compete in the TBA Muay Thai World Expo. Maddy fought a very tough opponent and lost by decision. Her opponent went on to win the title for the division. Kaitlin did amazing, stuck to her game plan and made it to the finals. She lost by decision, and is looking forward to her next fight on 7/8/17. Thalia performed textbook perfect in all three of her fights and brought home a title belt. Yves won his title fight via TKO by teep.
All of us here at Sitan Gym are very proud of all four of these fighters. It takes a lot of dedication and discipline to even make it into the ring. Win or Lose, we are family.
