Muay Thai World Championships

Personal message

My name is Nuri Lee and I’m 18 years old. I was born in South Korea and my parents decided to move to South Africa for their missionary work when I was little. I started martial arts from when I was a little child, from taekwondo to kickboxing and Muaythai. As a child, I was inspired by my father. He was my role model, my coach, and hero that taught me to live a life of perseverance, commitment and integrity. Seeing him go out to different fields and teaching martial arts to others by helping vulnerable people- whether they’re victims of abuse, rehab centers, schools or policemen. Growing up seeing this has driven my purpose to carry on what he is doing.

I was selected to compete and represent South Africa in the Muay Thai World Championships, in Thailand this July. As a young athlete, I’m trying to get some sponsors to help fund my trip.

Registrations need to be done by the 21st of June 2019, so if I could get enough sponsor by then that would be amazing, if not donations will still be accepted till the 18th of July 2019.

The break down of the total estimated amount, R30 000 per athlete will be:
-flight: R10 000
-accommodation: R13 000
-admin fee: R2000
-South African protea kit: R2500
-IFMA fight kit: R870
-Transport: R1630

All the donations would help me to achieve my goals and dreams. I’d have the greatest opportunity to represent South Africa in the World Championships. It would be a dream come true to bring medals back to my country. I’d really love to improve myself with this opportunity and promote the sport around the whole world.

*All funds raised will be transferred directly to Warriors of Faith Martial Arts Academy.*
