Bigfoot Gym Fund


As many already know, Ajarn Mike Walrath has passed over the great divide. Ajarn dedicated his life to his family, his students and the Bigfoot Gym School of Muay Thai and Krabi Krabong.

Bigfoot Gym has been a cornerstone of the Eugene martial arts community for more than three decades. Ajarn took in men and women from all walks of life, teaching them traditional muay thai and mentoring them in all aspects of the human experience. 

In the Ajarn's absence, the gym will continue on as he would have wished. In this time of transition, his family and small cadre of loyal instructors humbly request donations from all who are willing, in order to ensure that the life of the gym can move forward on the path to sustainability. We need a little help to get over this first hurdle of transition.  

We are fully invested in keeping Bigfoot Gym alive in loving memory of the Ajarn. Please help us do this.
