Arthur Moulas Martial Arts Tahmoor and AMMA Oak Flats competitors are ready to prove they are full of fight.

The clubs will host a special Beach Bash event in Towradgi on Saturday, October 14 featuring Muay Thai fighters from NSW, interstate and overseas.

Two Tahmoor combatants will compete for a state title while three fighters will showcase their skills in amateur fights. Organiser Catherine Rigg said this was the second year the club had teamed up with Oak Flats.

“There will be 32 fighters and 16 battles with some lasting three rounds and others five rounds,” she said.

Mrs Rigg encouraged locals to take a drive down to Towradgi Beach Hotel to support the competitors.

“Come and experience a different type of sport,” she said. “With all the hype around mixed martial arts recently, the competition will be a good way for people to experience a local combat sport. Get behind and support our local boys who have put a lot of time and effort into their training.”

The competitors train six days a week, twice a day.

“That is a lot of effort for the younger kids who still go to school,” Mrs Rigg said. “They learn techniques and how to control their mental state. They will have to bring it all together on the night.”
