Australia’s leading female fighter Yolanda ‘The Springbok’ Schmidt provides personal Muay Thai training in Gladesville, Sydney, NSW.
Yolanda Schmidt is, hands down, today’s most buzzing name of women’s Muay Thai in Down Under. She is an x-time National champion in both amateur and pro classes. She is also a World Cup bronze-medalist in 2015, as well as a future participant of World Championship in Sweden, that is held from 19 to 29 of May in Jonkoping.
Meanwhile, in two weeks time Menai High School teacher Schmidt, who is also a community volunteer, is fighting her Aussie rival Samantha Brown. The clash will go ahead in Brisbane, QLD on Saturday April 9, aiming to square the differences, by all means, as well as title a new WBC champion.
“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what others say you can not do,” says former dancing world championship participant Schmidt, when she is asked about her achievements in the fight sport of Muay Thai.
“My second favorite quote is ‘I aspire to inspire before I expire,'” therefore I had an idea to start teaching Muay Thai too.
No questions asked about Schmidt’s expertise. She has definitely proved her credibility by outclassing Australia’s best, as well as defeating Thailand’s star Chomanee in Bangkok last year .
“I am a school teacher, I am qualified to each,”
“Last year, I was honored to be recognized as Australia’s best female fighter,”
“I do not have a big head, but I believe I deserved that award.”
Schmidt is giving famous One-on-One Muay Thai training that also ranges from abs and stretch to fitness and Muay Thai technique.
“I can teach you how to effectively throw an elbow-strike. I am not as great as ‘Carnage’ [Nathan Corbett], but I can certainly show you a thing or two.”
Schmidt is teaching at PTJ Muaythai that she proudly calls ‘the best gym in NSW’. It is is located at 13/33-37 College St, Gladesville, NSW 2111.
