Ever since I threw my first punch, I’ve been hooked. Something about Muay Thai answered a question I didn’t realise I had inside of me; stepping into myself, tapping into a visceral strength I didn’t know was there and actively doing something that so many defied me and my gender to do sparked a flame.
In embarking on this physical journey, I didn’t realise that my fight would become an emotional one: abuse, development, growth, isolation, growing pains…
The more I talked to people who walked a similar path in Thailand, the more I realised that my story was not singular.
I’m honoured that one of my friends, Nicola Kaye, shared her story and her fight with me.
