Sinbi Taewoong HL

Sinbi Taewoong HL

Thopadak Wanchalerm is Sing’s Thai fighting name, which he used for many years in Bangkok. Sinbi Taewoong is Sing’s Korean fighting name, which he used when fighting K-1. Sinbi means ‘mysterious’ in Korean, and Taewoong is the name of the gym where he trained. The owner of this gym brought him to Korea, where he dominated the K1 Circuit.

Born in the Songkhla Province in southern Thailand, Sing grew up with two brothers and one sister. He started training Muay Thai at the age of 9. His father taught him and his brothers at home, who had been a fighter himself and subsequently became a rice grower. His sister (who now works at Sinbi Muay Thai) often helped by holding the pads for her brothers when they were young. His mother worked as a fruit tree farmer.

Sing had his first fight at the age of 9. He was South Thailand Champion at 70lbs. At 13, Sing left his home and moved to Bangkok with a friend to live and train there (Loog-tap-agat gym). His manager there was Wanpaded, a Racthadermnoen Champion. At the same time as training, he went to school and finished high school at 19. He went to University afterwards to study Sports Science and graduated at 24. Sing trained at the same gym and fought over 100 fights in Bangkok during this time. Sing fought in Bangkok’s famous and prestigious Lumpinee and Ratchadamnoen stadiums, where only the best fighters compete. He was ranked number 1 at both these stadiums. At the age of 25, Sing went to live and work in Korea for 6 months as a Muay Thai trainer, and he fought for Taewoong Muay Thai gym in Seoul.

The following year Sing moved to Phuket to work as a trainer at the gym of a friend he went to school with. While training many foreign Muay Thai students and tourists, Sing started learning English. In 2005 Sing went to England to fight and teach Muay Thai in Birmingham at Trojan Gym. In 2006 Sing had a fight in Sydney, Australia, and fighting in a KOMA event in Korea where he had three fights in one day in Seoul. He had fought the KOMA event previously in 2005 and won the event. The first time Sing was fighting in a K-1 MAX event in Busan, Korea, in February 2006. His second K-1 fight was in the K-1 KHAN Fighting Network in Seoul, Korea, in September 2006, where he won against the Mongolian fighter ByamBa by KO in the 2nd round. In total, Sing has ten Championship belts to his name. He opened Sinbi Muay Thai Camp in January 2007.

OUR TRAINERS

The Muay Thai training offered at Sinbi is second to none in Phuket. Most of our trainers have fought at a very high level at Lumpinee or Rajadamnern stadiums in Bangkok and internationally. However, what sets our trainers apart is that they all have experience training our international and Thai students at different levels and abilities. In addition, all of our trainers can communicate in good enough English to teach and instruct our students. Sinbi handpicks its trainers to make sure they are a good fit for the team and are happy in their job.

Our trainers know how to challenge students and adapt the pace of training to suit different abilities and fitness levels. Sinbi places a high emphasis on teaching the basics – stance, movement, balance, and correct technique. This will make strikes easier to perform effectively. Muay Thai should look beautiful too. You may hear your trainer saying “mai suay” – not beautiful and if you are lucky “suay” – beautiful during training.

Different trainers have different fighting styles, which is reflected in how and what they teach. We encourage you to take the opportunity to work with various trainers to learn some of their preferred techniques and tricks. We highly recommend taking private sessions while you are here to take advantage of a more personalized lesson and work on areas you would like to improve or practice.

Met is “old school” so if you are preparing for a fight he has a no-nonsense attitude to training and will push you very hard in training and on pads. However, he does have a softer side and is kind and patient to students who are beginners or less experienced – he has even been known to smile!
