Hurricane Sandy caused a great deal of damage to New Yorkers. Unfortunately, our friends Chris and Sarah Romulo of CROM Martial Training were not spared. Their school, located out in Far Rockaway, was one of the hardest hit zones and was destroyed.
Chris had built this school with his own hands. CROM and Muay Thai are not only their way of living, but their way of life. You may know Chris and Sarah from the 'smokers' that they often host, generously putting in their time and money to give novice fighters and Muay Thai enthusiasts a way to show their skills. They had never charged for these event. They were always free, and always about the people and the art. And these events helped promote Muay Thai here in New York City. Their local community knows them for their tireless contribution as spokesperson for the anti-bullying campaign, Kickin' It. And the Muay Thai community knows them for their great contribution to the Muaythai Preservation Project, a project that helps underprivileged kids through programs designed around Muay Thai. We are calling out to the Muay Thai community to come together, and help Chris and Sarah rebuild their school and their lives so that they can continue doing great things.
Coban's Muay Thai Camp will be hosting a fundraiser seminar to contribute towards their recovery. This will be a 3 hour Muay Thai and BJJ seminar with three great champions: 2-time Lumpinee champion and 5-time world champion, Coban Lookchaomaesaithong, WKA North American Muay Thai Champion, Chris Romulo and 2-time IBJJF World Champion Chris Visentin. They will be sharing their knowledge and experience with you.
