- How his first 7-month trip to Thailand was a life changing event.
- What it was like training at a wide variety of gyms, including the gym from “Chok Dee”, Lukbarnyai.
- Why and how the training differed so much from gyms in Thailand to the gyms back in the US.
- How to win over the Thai people with humor and goofiness.
- His thoughts and opinions on the whole “Kru” and “Ajarn” fad where people are labeling themselves high-level teachers after a short training course.
- What initially drove him to write a piece on this topic and how it grew in popularity shortly after he posted it.
- Why he originally started his Muay Thai blog and where he sees it going in the future.
- His battles with weight loss and how he lost 100lbs.
- Why food addiction and depression can be major factors in someones weight gain and how it should be taken into consideration before judging people.
