Ramon "The Diamond" Dekkers. If you know anything about Muay Thai, you know his name. Ramon fought for 20 years and had almost 200 fights with 175 wins, 90 by KO. He is an 8 time World Champion in Kick Boxing and Thai Boxing. He was voted Thai boxer of the year in 1992 in Thailand.
Ramon taught for almost 3 hours at a very high intensity level. He demonstrated every technique himself. He walked among the participants and gave individual instruction or coaching. He shared his own combinations and techniques without reservation and answered questions directly.
The techniques shared gave a different look at how to do damage and press the attack. It was a direct reflection of Ramon's own fight style. Hooks followed by more hooks and kicks. Kicks followed by hooks and more kicks. Very powerful combinations, very much inside and in your face.
Rob Handley and Pedro Sierra, coaches at Absolute MMA, attended the seminar on Fathers Day June 16, 2012 by Ramon Dekkers held at Bas Rutten's Elite MMA in Westlake Village, just outside of Los Angeles, California. This constant pursuit of knowledge, dedication to improvement, finding coaches and athletes with different perspectives and ultimately staying true to our lifelong pursuit as students of the martial arts and never stop learning is a constant theme with
the staff at Absolute MMA.
