Tiger Muay Thai Head Instructor - Kru Sanong

  • Nickname: Sanong
  • Fight name: Kongdet Rattanachote
  • Fight record: Over 300 fights
      

Sanong was born on the 8th of March 1976 in Buriram province, northeastern Thailand. He started Muay Thai at a young age and has amassed over 300 fights.

He fought in Bangkok under the fight name Kongdet Rattanachote and was a star of Songchai promotions (the biggest promoter in Thailand). Known for his very strong clinch, he rose the ranks until he was ranked number 1 at Lumpinee stadium in the 140 pound weight class.

As he got older he continued to grow in size and was sent to fight internationally by Songchai. He fought all over the world including Europe, America, Russia and Japan. Following a bad injury, Sanong was forced to retire from fighting and became a trainer. Sanong went on to train many Lumpinee, Rajadamnern and WMC champions in gyms in Bangkok such as Nampon PK Stereo, Laimangkon and Lamsongkram Chuwattana to name a few.

In 2011 Sanong came to train at Tiger Muay Thai along with his student Lamsongkram, and quickly became a favorite of professional fighters and guests looking for strong fight training.
