View Full Version : Had dinner with Ajahn Kevin Philavanh last night.
Man what an awesome guy. He's a muay thai trainer (practicing 50 years) who teaches a free class in hawaii. On the island of Honolulu (I think).
What an AMAZING man. He's visiting my school (transformation arts, los angeles www.lakungfu.com (http://www.lakungfu.com)) for two weeks. He's a very good friend of my teacher Daniel carr. His personality is so friendly and healthy. He's very knowledgable on all topics of martial arts, and buddhism.
Oh well anyways, I have a new idol. :)

What does this guy think about the efficacy of Muay Thai vs. the Internal Arts in combat?
What does Mr. Carr think about this? I know he teaches both.
How do you like your school? I've thought about checking it out.
"Bruce Leroy. That's who!"

What did you eat?
"Americans don't have the courage to come here," Mullah Mohammed Omar, leader of the Taliban who right about now is getting jiggy with his first of 70 virgins.
“Are you guys ready? Let’s roll.” Last words of Todd Beamer heard over his mobile line right before rushing a hijacker.
We ate thai food.
The school is great. I love it. You should definetly give it a look. There may be a waiting list soon though, we've got a lot of students right now :).
I havent really asked Dan or Ajahn what they think about Muay Thai vs Internal arts, but from what I gather... I think that they believe that Muay Thai is a more effective combat skill, and that kung fu is a more effective training skill.
Plus kung fu looks cooler :)
That's just speculation though, you'd have to ask them. If you check out the school within the next two or so weeks you'll get to meet ajahn.
