Kru Achilles started training me in Muaythai when I was 6 years old, I was actually his youngest student at the time. He was never just Kru to me. He was family. I hold every memory of him close to my heart such as all the weekly classes, having a demo at Nathan Phillip Square, spending new years together and enjoying events together. Achilles and his family have never been just friends to me. They’re family. He is a man that will be very missed by all that had the honour of meeting him. I love you Kru Achilles, thank you for all you’ve taught me.
