The WKA is proud to recognize it’s fighter of the month as Sitan Gym NY’s Jess Eng.

A resident of New York city Jess actively competes globally in the art of Muay Thai having just recently placed as a gold medalist in the 2017 IMFA Pan American Championships on October 7th.

With an impressive 14 and 4 Muay Thai record, some of her additional championship accolades include being crowned the WKA 102 lbs. amateur Muay Thai champion, the TBA Muay Thai classic flyweight champion, the WKA 105 lbs. amateur Muay Thai champion and in 2011 becoming a WKA North American amateur championship silver medalist.

The primary style of martial arts that just practices is Muay Thai, she started training in martial arts at the age of 22. When asked about her path in the martial arts Jess stated “I’ve always been interested in learning martial arts from a young age but didn’t have the resources for the opportunity. I took kickboxing classes that were offered in college and then was introduced to a Muay Thai gym by a close friend”.

Joining Sitan Gym is where Jess found her love for the sport she went on to state that “it’s where I met so many great people throughout the years that have become family...my trainer and mentor is Aziz Nabih, he’s the best!

Regarding training for a fight, Jess stated that her “fight camp consist of Muay Thai training along with running and lifting five days a week”.
The Muay Thai training is 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day with the lifting about two times a week.

When not competing Jess works as a designer for Calvin Klein underwear. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, traveling or taking in a comedy shows when she’s not working or training.

Jess is excited and looking forward to a rematch against accomplished Muay Thai fighter Kit Fung this December. Jess went on to say regarding this fight “we fought four years ago...it was an exciting fight then and should be an exciting fight now”!

Jess has current goals including “continuing to train and improve as a fighter, I am constantly working on fine-tuning everything; training hard and trying to get as many fights as I can and stay active; a current near future goal is IFMA world championships in 2018”.

When asked if she had any advice for new fighters Jess said “stay focused and always train; never skip out on anything that is asked; work and train hard in camp; trust in your coaches and trainers”.
