From 12 September we will have another Thai Trainer at Bad Company. This time surrent Ratchadamnoen Ranked start Duwao will be teaching full time....

Duwao Kongudom

former champion of Siam Omnoi bantam weight
130 fights 88 wins
age: 30 years old (but looks like 21!) he says!

Some notable victories:
Duwao beat Anuwat twice and lost once on points in a close fight many considered Duwao won
beat Pujar Sorsuwanee on points
beat Gleangklai Torsillachai twice on points
beat Sipmuang Torbansaen on points

Duwao will be available for private lessons, small groups and seminars either at Bad Company or elsewhere. Duwao has been to Bad Company for a brief spell before and taught for a while at Tony Myers gym in Birmingham. Anyone who has trained with him will agree what a good coach he is and if you saw his fight with liam Harrison what a good fighter he is!

He will also fight while he is here. He fights on 8 September in Wales against another Ratchadamnoen rankesd Thai called Sipmurn and will also fight while at Bad Company on Power of Scotland 3 in Glasgow. More details abvout this to be released soon but Liam Harrison will also fight on the show against Somkorn Jockeygym.

LOL,gas coupons to!.

Duwao can fight different styles; attacking like he did against Liam in the second half of their fight, or as a very clever counter fighter with great technique. I think this understanding and ability, along with his very friendly personality makes him an excellent coach. His English is good now and getting better all the time. I can highly recommend him as a coach.

top guy, top fighter and a real ambassador for the sport.
dodgy price
Posted: 2007-08-31 17:22:56
Someone please help convince me I'm not going mad. I thought I'd read on Ax in a drunken haze that the only time Duwao has been dropped in his career was the left hook from Liam H. Actually it may have been on the Bad Co forum. Nobody else seems to recall seeing it, but I'm 100% I saw it!
Posted: 2007-08-31 18:18:31
Only time by Harrison yes..................he is a fine gentleman!

had the honour of sharing a corner with him when dean James fought.......honour to coener James and an honour to do it with a champ.
Posted: 2007-08-31 18:50:22
Yeah Liam put him down with a left hook at the Wolverhampton Superfights. I saw it 100% cause I was there.
Posted: 2007-09-01 03:14:59
It is the only time in his career he has ever taken any sort of count (although in Thailand even that wouldn't have been a count because he stood up immediately). He has fought big punchers before (including Anuwat 3 times, which says a lot about Lian's punching power and Duwao's chin and heart. When he came back to the corner after getting dropped, Pimu told him everyone in the crowd was laughing at him!
Posted: 2007-09-01 03:45:36
Pimu told him everyone in the crowd was laughing at him!

nice bit of positive feedback, and constructive critisism
Mr Smith
Posted: 2007-09-01 10:49:08
Liam dropped him with a 'flash' knock down from a left hook in the 2nd round but as it turned out it was the worst thing that he could have done!

All it did was serve to unleash the beast!! Duwao made sure he didn't stand and trade any more and just closed him down and clinched him to pieces. Very impressive.

That and the few days he was at our gym teaching is why I asked for him to come for longer.
Posted: 2007-09-02 07:00:15
When he came last time he showed us some fantastic clinch techniques....ways of developing power and pushes in the clinch..
Heres one that he showed us.
Bearing in mind, this was between fights for Liam, so he was about 68/70kgs, and Duawow was just about to go back to Thailand and was keeping his weight down, so was about 59/60kgs, make this "power push" all the more impressive.

I cant wait!!!!!!

Why cant bad company be in Coventry!!! :(
Posted: 2007-09-02 16:29:12
Nothing like watching someone else falling A over T. I'm pretty strong in the clinch anyway (despite dropping loads of weight I've built up a lot of muscle) so it would be good to get some technique behind it as well. Just as soon as I get my holiday out of the way.....
Posted: 2007-09-02 17:07:13
Christ Marcus, you`ve set youself up for a fall there. Can just see it when you return to the gym and youve got Duwao, Liam, Andy, Mr C, Mr Smith, Jordan, James France etc all queueing up and saying "so you think you`re strong in the clinch do you...." :)
Posted: 2007-09-02 17:25:48
I suppose I should have added "...compared to how I used to be", but I'm quite pleased at how I'm getting on. Even before I started Thai boxing I managed to carry two full 18.5 litre/5 gallon water cooler bottles up 10 flights of stairs, one in each hand. I work on the 5th floor and the lift was shut down for maintenance for a month so I didn't have a lot of choice.
Mr Smith

To quote Bruce Lee-Water bottles dont hit back...or so£ething like that.

Let the games begin.... :))))

thats was just before my fight with petaek so i was about 64kg Duwao was 61 but still very impressive......hes strong as fook....hes in the rankings at 135 at the minute
Posted: 2007-09-04 09:47:52
That is superb
Posted: 2007-09-04 12:42:22
In his last fight Duwao was 127lbs but has fought bigger boxers
Posted: 2007-09-08 01:13:41
Duwao is one of my favourite fighters. He is very technical. If he can teach, he will make an excellent trainer. I feel that if he was properly handled, and given good nutrition and good physical training, he would have won a lot more championship.

Good post SportMuay.
f act is i dont know any thai fighter that isnt good in the clinch!
know a couple that dont like it,but they are still good at it!.
Duwao will be a great addition to british MuayThai.
Liam R
Posted: 2007-09-09 07:56:37
ive watched him physically train for over a month every day and seen what he eats, i wouldnt say it was shabby. whats this all about?
paul pearson
Posted: 2007-09-10 01:17:09
Liam R,
SportMuay is a thai national who i imagine has observed the top fighters close up for years,im unsure why he mentioned the nutrion etc,hopefully he will come on and give us more insight.

Im sure he means well in what he says.

My point was mainly about the clinch game in Thailand being so good.

I also liked what SportMuay said about Duwao being very technical and one of his fav fighters ,whish is why i thought it was a good post.

hi ya i attended a seminar yesterday with pimu,duwao,thailand pinsinchai,tony myers.duwao fought on sat and did a very good seminar thailand held the pads for duwao and it was a eye opener just a few hours after a fight he does this now you tell me he hasnt been looked after.pimu is a great coach
Liam R
Posted: 2007-09-10 05:06:01
i think i know what he is referring to but that was the reason he joined pimus and is now looked after
paul pearson
Posted: 2007-09-10 05:17:50
Ok Liam,you sound like you know more about Khun Duwao than i do.

Damon thats common for thais,ive seen several in thailand hold pads on morning,box on the nite,hold pads the next day and box again on the night!.
Liam R
Posted: 2007-09-10 08:55:20
he did a demo kicking pads before he fought on this show.
I havent a clue paul, i saw him training and fighting and playing football out of another gym before Tawan. I was just hoping someone wasnt saying he isnt looked after at the moment because he is, sorry for confusion.
paul pearson
Posted: 2007-09-10 11:53:43
I understand Liam,no confusion brother.

The thais are such a tough race arent they,boxing is just second nature to them,playing footie before a fight awesum!.

Just had my first sesh with Duwoa and would like to echo all of the above...

Great coach, speaks good english and broke everything down...fantastic technique and clever too...anyone wanting some first class coaching with a top fighter should get a place booked - anyone interested in Muay Thai would benefit, any level !!

Thanks Richard for the opportunity, and for 3 more months great training !

We had Pimu, Duwao, Thailand Pinsinchai, Simpurn and Wood for a seminar last week at my new gym in Cardiff, very short notice but a good all round attendance, my guys were blown away by the teaching of all the Thais who were very patient with the beginners and took time with everyone.

Reccomend anyone up North/countrywide to try and book a session with Duwao at bad co.

Also Mr Smith please can you ring Peter Stewart he is looking for your telephone number and wants to chat about the old days?????????????????????????

You can e mail/pm me for his number or find it on our site on Contact details page.

Posted: 2007-09-29 10:37:04
I had a seminar at my gym today with Duwao and would highly recommend it to everyone.

He has an excellant method of teaching, he is very patient, his English is quite good and most of all, he looked like he was enjoying himself!!!!!

Don't miss out on this opportunity
