Eating healthy after training
There are times when eating out is for pure enjoyment and anything goes. There are also times when you need to eat something healthy on the run to fuel your body. I have previously written about how I eat to maximise health and wellbeing. Most of the time, it's easiest when you can cook for yourself. However, I often find...
UFC 221 Lilian Dikmans
Last week in Perth was a mixed martial arts extravaganza in the lead up to UFC 221. MMA fans flocked into the Western Australian State from all over the country to watch the much anticipated fights. A flurry of press conferences, open workouts, weigh-ins and obligatory face offs provided a runway to the main event held on Sunday morning...
Lilian Dikmans Yin Yoga
Stretching is an essential practice for any athlete, particularly for those engaging in martial arts. Flexibility is often an advantage, such as being able to land a perfectly timed head kick.

Saenchai and Lilian Dikmans at Thai Fight Bangkok
It was a typically humid Bangkok afternoon last Saturday as we made our way to Thai Fight Bangkok, after morning training at Sangmorakot Gym.

Lilian Dikmans Muay Thai
The first week of training is always the hardest. Until your body starts to adapt it can be a very painful process. Mentally, it's no walk in the park either. As I wrote in my previous post, I'm here in Perth to start proper Muay Thai training for 2018 before heading to Bangkok. I am training at Kao Sok in...
Lilian Dikmans Muay Thai trainingvideo
Yesterday was my first day of training for 2018 here in Perth. Famed as one of Australia's Muay Thai capitals, the city is also known for its relentlessly hot weather in summer.
