Simon Chu – Striking Coach
My name is Simon Chu, I have an extensive background in Muay Thai, both as a fighter and a trainer. I started training Muay Thai at 7 years old, began competing at 8 and continued for most of my adulthood. My career has led me to train and fight around the world with some of the best athletes in the sport.
For the last 11 years I have put my passion and experience of Muay Thai into my gym, Kiatphontip based in Leeds UK. I run the gym with my sister Maria and brother in law Jompop and together we won UK Gym of the Year 2019.
At the gym, I train beginners, all the way to world champion Muay Thai and Kick Boxing fighters, as well as UFC and MMA fighters. I believe my extensive background in Muay Thai gives me the ability to provide a training experience that is second to none.
During my career as a fighter, I learnt to develop my own style of fighting and found a keen interest in perfecting techniques and teaching these to others.
