New Commer Challenge

The Punch it Newcomer Challenge

Punchit Internatinal MuayThai Newcomer Challenge 2020

We, Punch it Gym Koh Samui, are the promoter of the international Punch it Newcomer Challenge – in association with Bernard Caplin and CHOK! Magazine, one of the most popular international martial arts magazines worldwide.

Markus & Bernard

Together we have created an international tournament concept for Muaythai newcomers, encompassing 4 to 6 national tournaments in different countries and at different weight classes. Each national tournament winner wins 2 weeks free fightcamp at our gym here on Koh Samui, including hotel room. On top, each winner also gets the opportunity of a paid fight against a professional Thai fighter in the grand finale hier on Samui in November.

Each national tournament is a 4-man format, our goal is to help develop new young talent around the world. The age range is set from 16 to maximum 21 years old, fighters cannot have fought in Thailand before and must not have more than 10 A-class Muaythai fights upon entry.

Each national tournament is organised by a local promoter, which can also be a federation or a club. Bernard Caplin, an experienced promoter, will assist all local promoters with their organisation, event planning and rules & regulations. The grand final will be at the famous Phetchbuncha Stadium on Koh Samui late November. All finalists will receive a small fight purse in baht for this fight, also special Muaythai clothing & accessories from Punch it.

A country may host a national tournament no more than twice, after which our committee will consider new countries. All applications to host a national tournament in the coming year must be approved by December.

Punch it Newcomer Challenge 2021 Update.

There are hundreds of opportunities to fight Muaythai in Thailand - every day. At temple events, in local or regional stadiums, at shopping malls, in bars or at tourist clubs or shows and of course in the major stadiums in Bangkok. Every opportunity offers a different challenge, different circumstances and naturally, also very different levels.

Please stop celebrating "beating a Thai" just because you beat a Thai. This is not a measure of your ability, nor is it something of valor per se. Of value is when you are constantly improving your skills, learning from the best and measuring yourself against relevant and carefully matchmaked opponents along the way.

Beating a taxi driver, an old fighter, a young, inexperienced or just plain bad Muaythai fighter that happens to be a Thai, is nothing to be proud about.

It's a bit like visiting Japan, swordfighting with a random Japanese, winning and telling everyone you beat a Ninja. Not everyone in Japan is a Ninja. Most are of course, but not everyone. πŸ˜‚

In 2021, the Punch it Newcomer Challenge will be back, watch out for more infos soon.

2020 tournament series finally cancelled.

The final scheduled event for this year, planned in Wels, Austria on September 19th, has now also been forced to reschedule. The ongoing international problems caused by Covid-19 and the current travel status announcements regarding Thailand have finally put an end to this year's planning. Germany, Czech Republic, Australia and now Austria have all called off this year's qualification 4-mans.

We will be back in 2021!
