Help Arshiyam Take Gold In Thailand

Friends, Family, and Followers!

My name is Arshiyam "Kid Lightning"Kanwar and I am a 16 year old Muay Thai fighter. I live in Chandler, Arizona and fight out of Sitan Gym AZ, under one of the best coaches in the nation, Thiago Azeredo. I have been training for about 4 and a half years and fighting actively for 3. I had my first fight in the summer of 2014, and ever since then... I have been addicted to Muay Thai!

3 years have passed, and my passion for this sport is stronger than ever! In the past 3 years i have competed against the best in the world and have made my way to the TOP in the 110- 115lbs weight division in the USA! Currently, I have 15 fights with a record of 14-1-0 (3 by KO). I am a 6x Muay Thai Champion holding the 2014 TBA North American Title, 2015 USMTO North American title, 2015 TBA North American Title, 2016 USMTO World Title, 2017 Siam Fight Productions Continental Title, and the 2017 USMTO World Title. I am also the 2016 IFMA Youth Word Championship Bronze medalist in the 51kg category.

De to these achievements, I have been selected by the USMF to represent USA in the largest Muay Thai tournament in the WORLD (140 countries represented) for the 2nd year in a row! This tournament is considered the Olympics of Muay Thai and gained Muay Thai Olympic recognition!  When I attended last year I fought at my walking weight against the best at 51kg. I faced Malaysia who i beat by KO, Korea who i beat by decision, and finally Thailand (fighter with 200 pro fights) who i lost to in the semi-finals, which was my first loss ever. The Thai went on to the finals and won gold. I am now bigger, stronger, a year older, fighting again at 51kg. I plan on bringing home the GOLD but I NEED YOUR HELP! This tournament takes pace in Bangkok, Thailand from the 3rd to the11th of August this year. After capturing the gold at IFMA, I will be staying an additional week and a half to train and fight out of the world renowned Sitsongpeenong Camp!

I need to raise $3500 for my trip to cover flight, hotel, food, tournament fees, and Camp training/ accomodations. Please help me get there by spreading the word and donating... Every dollar counts!

Thank you for your support!
