YOUTH MUAY THAI SCRIMMAGE
Welcoming all youth Muay Thai athletes!
This is an opportunity for you to show your skills and determination in the ring and to gain experience in Muay Thai competition. The entire purpose of this event is to get our young competitors some addition experience in the ring and help them develop their technique and confidence. Matches will be made according to age, weight, gender, and experience; and the goal is to challenge each athlete.
Since this will be about skill development no winners will be declared - both hands will be raised. Constructive feedback will be provided by the line judges to each coach, who will then share their comments with their teams at their discretion.
Awards for best spirit, best composure, etc. will be awarded at the end of the event.
Spectators are welcome!
