It's my hope to provide my supporters with all sorts of content, making this Patreon the most enjoyable, inspiring and informative Muay Thai site on the internet. Not only are you supporting me as a fighter and a writer, but also a journalist attempting to change what is possible in the sport. By sharing unique perspectives and hard to find information, the entire Muay Thai Community becomes enriched; and as the heritage of Thailand's Muay Thai is celebrated in a meaningful way, its longevity is insured.
One of my enduring passions, from the start, has been to share true Muay Thai techniques. As someone who trained more or less alone for a long time, there was a real need (and hunger) for authentic techniques. This is partly why I began the Muay Thai Library documentary project, so that people all over the world can come in touch with the brilliance and nobility of Thailand's techniques, directly from the legendary fighters who currently carry them. You can see a full table of contents of the Muay Thai Library Preserve The Legacy project here. With over 36 hours of commentary footage (and a hoped for eventual 100 hours), this is becoming the most exhaustive and detailed record of Thailand's great fighters & teachers, and their techniques.
TABLE of CONTENTS: Muay Thai Library
In addition to this knowledge base, becoming my supporter gives you inside access to my experiences as a female fighter with over 200 fights. Exclusive patron-only articles and features that may enrich and empower you as a lover of Muay Thai. Below is a regularly updated table of contents for these.
$1 Supporters - the suggested pledge is $5, but even at $1 there are a lot of benefits and features. You not only are able to study the 5 most recent Muay Thai Library sessions, you get the following:
ARTICLES - Patreon Magazine

Cheet Yaa - "if there were no cuts it wouldn't be Sylvie" | A trip to the clinic to receive a boosting IV leaves me drifting through thoughts of belonging, as I listen to my kru talk about me to the nurse. read it here
Jai Rohn - My Story of Blood, My Pride and Stitches | My heart was racing, I was upset at my performance, and then there was the pain of stitches, more painful than any stitches I've had before. read it here
$5 Supporters - $5 is the suggested pledge. It includes all the content above, plus the 15 most recent Muay Thai Library project sessions with legends. It goes a long way towards supporting my fighting as I travel across Thailand, sharing the experience as I go through writing.
$10 Supporters - $10 patrons not only get full access to over 36 hours of Muay Thai Library sessions, the entire archive - see a full table of contents of the Library here - they are significantly supporting that documentary project, making it happen. This archive I believe is historic work that will affect generations of practitioners. It is important to preserve these techniques and the men that teach them (and fought with them), as Muay Thai is changing - it is a living art.
$15 Supporters - $15 patrons are super supporters, and I cannot thank you enough. You are making everything I'm doing possible with a generous pledge and I'll do my best to make the most of your support. Fighting, traveling, filming, training: it all comes from you, my patrons.
BEHIND THE SCENES
You can also easily browse through all my Patreon content using convenient filters. Just go to the post tab on the homepage. Every tag containing "MTL" is a Muay Thai Library session. You can filter sessions of only a certain kind. Also my articles, and fight videos can be found this way too.
In all, thank you very much to everyone supporting me, and those considering offering support as well. I'm also very open to suggestions about creative content I can do. My plate is super full with everything I'm writing and filming for you guys, and my full-time training and fighting, but I'm always open to ideas.
