About Yolly Leung: in her early 30s, shek did not pay much attention to Thai boxing at first. Like most people, she thought it was a violent sport which was not for girls.
But it was not until she left to study for her A-Levels in Britain that she really came into contact with the sport.
After a year of regular training, Leung says both Thai boxing and exercise became a habit, and she now feels uncomfortable if she does not work up a sweat. Even on holidays and trips, she goes to the gym.

Don't think she has been this this slim all along he says, pointing at his wife and business partner. she was a plump girl who never did any exercise when she was in Britain.  If I did it full time, I would devote 100 percent of my efforts to it ,Ó Leung says.  I was worried if I could manage it.

As the general manager of the club, she is also responsible for marketing, accounting, administration and management.
Being a woman in a male-dominated field has not always been easy.


Some male students belittle me, she says.  Some think that I'm a petite girl and are skeptical about whether I'm professional enough.  And male coaches are more popular because they can attract students of both genders.But Leung does not take it personally.  Besides, she has other strengths. Leung's caring personality and persistence has earned her the respect and admiration of her students. 

 

Gabrielle Tvscher, who has boxed under Leung's tutelage for two years, says she loves her coach but complains about her demanding style.  She keeps yelling "Work harder! Work harder! Ten more! Ten more!  Tvscher says.  Her skills and passion in teaching explain why her classes are well attended.

 

Many students join the class to keep fit, while some come to release stress. Some simply love Thai boing.  For women who have never tried Thai boxing, and who might feel embarrassed to practice alongside men, Leung says her class is a stress-free environment where they can gain confidence.  To her student, Leung is a role model --- a determined, strong-willed coach who demonstrates that women can also master Thai boxing.  Her strong character may be related to her background.  Leung's parents divorced when she was young and she lived with her grandmother. She leaned to be independent when she studied in Britain.
