“Muay Thai isn’t just a hobby for me, it’s my passion. The best part about Muay Thai is there is always something to learn. Just being in a constant state of learning makes me a better fighter and a better trainer. I love teaching, and just seeing the excitement and passion in others for the sport and the culture. ”
Bradley L’Herrou is a fighter, coach, and student at KOH Muay Thai. Along with PC Kru Burnell, he has helped develop the KOH Kids curriculum. Our young Nak Muay grow their Muay Thai skills by striving to reach technique, strength, and knowledge benchmarks. Kids learn to use all 8 weapons of Muay Thai: right and left kicks, knees, punches, and elbows. They learn how to achieve difficult goals by working through discomfort and engaging in mindful practice.
Bradley trained under Kru Yai Ben Sor Suchart at two gyms and developed a fast passion for Muay Thai. Like all the trainers at KOH Muay Thai, Bradley has taken multiple fights and understands the heart and skill it takes to step into the ring. He helps cultivate these traits in KOH students, regardless of whether they intend to fight.
