British 14 x World Muay Thai Legend
Julie Kitchen, what an incredible woman this is. Not only is she a mother of twins (who happen to world champion Muay Thai fighters), but she has an amazing 14 world titles in Muay Thai herself. Her fans and the Muay Thai community have called her The Queen of Muay Thai. Rightly so after such an incredible career.
I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Martial Arts Show Live in Birmingham, UK. We discussed the possibility of working together and the rest is history. This photo shoot will be the first of many. So I took the long drive West and met up with her at Touch Gloves Gym. I spent the best part of two days with her, photographing her training and modeling for me. This is just one of the sessions from those two days.. I will be uploading more as and when I get the time.
Julie and I struck it off, and we work so well together. She is the perfect model for a photographer and I can proudly now call her a friend. Julie is known more around the globe than she is in her own country. It’s a sad fact that Britain doesn’t respect what Muay Thai is about. We really should be supporting a World Champion if they come from our shores, especially if they are such a classy ambassador for the sport.
Do your part and go “like” her facebook athelete page, while you’re at it… come like the Awakening page too.
