Issan Gym champions meet Muaythai legend

Date published: 24 September 2019


On Monday (7th September) Isaan Gym hosted a seminar with Australia Muaythai legend John Wayne Parr- a 10 time world champion.

The seminar was sold out in a matter of days, with gyms attending from across the North West.

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity that came to Oldham.

Head coach Ste Donelly said, " I have trained at Boonchu Gym in Australia with Wayne a few times, so it was an amazing opportunity to have John Wayne Parr over at my gym sharing his Knowledge with our boxers.

"It was nice for our champions to meet a real Muaythai legend of the golden era."
