A Nak Muay Experience at Queensleigh Apartments

Posted in Local Events @ Oct 11th 2010 10:14am - By Administrator

Family holidays in Broadbeach are more than about fine sand beaches and sophisticated restaurants. From our beachfront apartments in Broadbeach, you can experience an overwhelming number of exciting events. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or a tourist on the hunt for an exceptional holiday, Queenleigh Holiday Apartments is your ticket to a world of entertainment and exhilaration.

One of the most intense sports events is set to go full throttle this November at the Gold Coast Convention Centre near our cheap Broadbeach Apartments. The Evolution 22 Muay Thai competition gathers the best-trained nak muays for a show of elite martial arts skills and sportsmanship.

Muay Thai is a kickboxing style from Thailand. The word muay comes from the Sanskrit mavya and Thai is derived from the Tai. The martial art is referred to as the “art of eight limbs” as it makes use of the two fists, two elbows, two shinbones, and two knees to punch, elbow, kick, or hit an opponent with a knee strike. A nak muay is a practitioner of the art of eight limbs.

Over the years, several Aussie nak muays have earned accolades in this sport, and one of them is set to fight in the main event of Evolution 22. Fighting out of Five Rings Dojo in the Gold Coast, Nathan “Carnage” Corbett is the top-ranked contender in the WBC Muay Thai super-cruiserweight division and the WKN Muay Thai Heavyweight Champion. He is best known for knocking out the legendary Scott Banan and reigning cruiserweight champion Tyronne Spong.  The fight against Spong ended in a controversial “no contest” decision as Corbett resumed fighting even after the referee had stopped the bout. For a dose of Muay Thai action, here are the highlights of the Corbett-Spong match.

Our beachfront apartments Broadbeach provide the ideal venue from which you can watch Evolution 22. Our two-bedroom apartments provide balconies with ocean views, fully equipped kitchens with dishwasher and microwave, and laundry washing machine with dryer.  We also have a heated swimming pool and spa so you can have a relaxing afternoon dip before taking on your first Nak Muay experience - Gold Coast style.

Event Date: Saturday, 27 November 2010, 7.00PM
