Personal trainer, Muay Thai instructor and local girl, Ruth Ashdown fought for the Super-Fly Weight WBC International Title last weekend in Liverpool.
Fighting Leeds based, Kate Stables, the fight was billed as one to watch with the two, two-ranked fighters coming face to face for the first time.
Ruth who lives in Haywards Heath and teaches a variety of classes at the Crawley Martial Arts Academy had been training hard for the past 8 weeks as she got in the best shape of her life as she looked to add the WBC title to her collection that includes a British Title, the ISKA and ICO World Titles.
Before starting Thaiboxing, Ruth was a photographer at local shows, traveling with the club and taking pictures for the club’s, Sussex based fighters.
As time went on she started training, intially building her fitness before deciding to ‘give it a go’, jump in the ring and see what it was all about.
Little did she know how it’d changer her life and her career forever!
Now working as a personal trainer and coach, teaching Ladies Kombat Fitness and Ladies Muay Thai (Kickboxing) to local women, mum’s and daughter’s who want to get in great shape, learn important self-defence skills and have fun at the same time.
With classes throughout the week, Ruth now has two major personal goals in life…
First to continue growing and improving as a fighter and martial artist.
And second to help local women get in great shape, lose weight and feel better about how they look through her variety of training classes.
