International Kickboxer Magazine, Nov/Dec 2014

Victoria doesn’t have a reputation as a hot-bed of Thai Boxing culture; rather, it is traditionally held as the stomping-ground of kickboxing. Cain ‘Insane’ Brunton is working to change that, one fight at a time. He tells JARROD BOYLE about his recent WMC State Title win and the possibilities it has opened up for him, including a spot on JWP’s Caged Muay Thai, a promotion as Queensland-crazy as anyone could hope to get.

Nase Soai had two fights; one win, one loss. I have fought more experienced guys, but Nase was the toughest and hardest. He damn-near KOed me at the end of the first!

Thanks to Anthony Vella, Paul Demicoli and especially Joe Demicoli for supporting me. Hopefully, I’ll find my way onto Paul’s Eruption professional shows soon.

International Kickboxer, Vol.17, no.5 

When talking footwork, it is fair to say that fighters can roughly be split into two camps; there are those who want to stand and trade shots, and those who want to hit and run. A combination of both approaches is ideal, because no matter what you prefer, the best fighters can adapt to a situation in order to bring it under their control. The further apart two fighters are in terms of their abilities, the more important it becomes for the less-mobile one to pin the other down. The static fighter wants to prevent the mobile one escaping so he (or she) can set about breaking him up. Continue reading
