Life of a racehorse. 🐎

Western countries often associate fighting with violence, honor, and a false sense of grandeur. The rhetoric for fighting is often "going to war" or "time for violence."

It's different in Thailand. Just another day at the stable. We're not going to war; we're going to work. Do you hop on the commute train every morning thinking of going to war with that PowerPoint presentation? Hmm, maybe. I don't know your life. 🤔😆

We train, eat, nap, wake up, train again, eat again, sleep, and repeat. We fight. We lose. We win. We rest a couple days off and we do it again. 🔂

It's actually very unglamorous. Only alluring because you get see the highly curated edited highlights we share designed to market ourselves & influence you. 💁🏻‍♀️💅

Our bodies are constant subjects of public ridicule. "You look fat" is my personal favorite. Simple, but it elegantly cuts through my soul every single time.👌🏼

It's not meant to hurt your feelings. You're a racehorse. So you grow thick skin & stay in tip top shape in order to win. 🥇

So why do this? Depends on who you ask, but I have the privilege of choice, and man oh man, I want to race! I wish I realized this sooner, but I had other priorities in life.

This is the most real and honest thing I have ever done. I know what is expected of me from the person across the ring. The goal is clear and there is immediate physical feedback if I make a mistake.

This, to me, is living an authentic life.

It’s fight week for Five Points Coach and fighter Serpico! This is a local show and there are still a few tickets at the desk! 🔥🔥
Serpico Adams will be taking on Jhalani Battle-Williams in a rematch on September 17th Freedom 7! There were mixed reviews on the results the first time so you know this second fight between the two will be fireworks!

“My highs would probably be actually being in there and fighting some of the best people in America and hearing the crowd cheering, the adrenaline, nothing beats it. Lows would probably be losing especially when you felt like you have done enough to win the fight, but the judges don’t seem to think so. Another low would probably be all the weight cutting.

I was never really athletic growing up and I think Muay Thai is the first sport that got me active. I’m a really big dragon ball z fan and I think Muay Thai is like the closest thing to being a saiyan warrior. I feel like the constant push to do better after every fight, the large community of people that support you win or lose. Recently I’ve been coaching out of five points academy and I’ts been amazing to see upcoming fighters grow and fall in love with the sport like I did”.

Honestly, I just fight for myself. This was the first thing I had set out to do that was my very own idea and dream. From 0 to 20 fights, It’s been a hell of a ride and I can’t wait to continue. Here’s to 100 more fights.”

This a late post, but I am truly grateful for Five Points Academy] for giving me incessant support in preparation for my first fight. for cornering me, yelling at me mid fight in spite of the fact that I couldn’t hear anything👂😄. Future champ for coaching me during camp and put me on fire constantly. for teaching me a year of Muay Thai in 2 weeks. The only regret I had is that I didn’t get to showcase enough I had learnt from Five Points Academy]. I’m stepping out of NYC for a bit and truly looking forward to my next fight in China!!
