Step into the Ring with Siam Kickboxing and Muay Thai
From a young age, Craig Moser was involved in martial arts. Throughout his training, he became more exposed to the world of combat sport and eventually took up kick boxing on a competitive level. As his passion for combat sports grew, so did his desire to open his own gym. In 2002, Craig began to train out of the basement of a church and within a few years Siam Kickboxing and Muay Thai was born. Now located in the heart of the Warehouse District, Siam is home to Regina’s only gym that is geared towards the practice of Muay Thai. “Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand. It’s referred to as the science of eight limbs because you can use every part of your body as a weapon” said Moser.

From a young age, Marcie’s favorite place to be was in the kitchen, baking alongside her mother. The more she learned about baking, the more her passion grew for food. As a teenager, she began working at one of Regina’s first haute cuisine restaurants – Mieka’s. After gaining experience at Mieka’s, she then went on to train in Ottawa at the renowned Culinary Arts Institute, Le Cordon Bleu.
