LOS ANGELES – Undefeated Muay Thai fighter Simon Marcus will take Sweden’s Sadibou Sy, when MUAY THAI IN AMERICA (MTIA) in honor of the King of Thailand’s birthday heads to Raleigh Studios in Play Vista, CA on Saturday, Dec. 1. The event will air live on DIRECT TV® and INDEMAND® at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

In honor of the King of Thailand’s Birthday, MTIA will bring together 18 of the best Muay Thai fighters, “Nak Muay”, from the U.S. and around the world to participate in eight fierce bouts, live before an international audience. This will be an unprecedented red carpet gala affair in celebration of the King’s birthday.

MTIA is rapidly positioning itself as a leader in the world of combative stand-up sports. Muay Thai is the most devastating, yet graceful, culturally balanced art form on the planet. Practiced, like a religion throughout the world, Muay Thai is in need of professional execution. MTIA has elevated the presentation of professional Muay Thai to the level of HBO Boxing and that of our closest competitor, ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (UFC). MTIA has set the bar and is expected to become the industry leader in professional martial art competition.

Congratulations to Luis Macias

Congratulations to Inosanto Academy’s own Luis “Chupacabra” Macias for taking home the silver medal at the 2011 NABJJF North American No Gi Jiu Jitsu Tournament. The tournament took place on December 4th at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson, CA.

Luis dominated his larger opponents with dynamic technique and an un-passable guard on his way to the championship match where he once again fought a taller, heavier opponent. Luis put up a great effort but in the end, the size difference finally took its toll and he lost on points, finishing with the silver medal.

Congratulations again to Luis and Team Inosanto BJJ on a hard fought and well deserved medal.
