If you know Muay Thai and Kickboxing in the UK then you've heard of the Bad Company Gym. Bad Company is home to fighters like Liam Harrison and Jordan Watson, both fighters who compete for Yokkao and have made names for themselves all across the globe. Richard Smith, the founder and head trainer, has come to a deal with Yokkao for Bad Company to become the official Yokkao Training Center in the UK, with the gym being fully outfitted in Yokkao gear!
For those looking to purchase Yokkao gear in the UK you can do so thanks to a new deal between Stefania Picelli and Jack Bolam at www.thaiboxingstore.co.uk.
Of course, this focus on the UK has to do with the upcoming Yokkao 8 card, which happens on March 8th in the UK! Tickets are still available at Yokkao's website and here is a look at the card.
