Martial artists from the renowned Team Lakay now enjoy a modern training facility. They opened its new headquarters last Wednesday, 21 August in Pico, La Trinidad.
The new facility houses better training equipment, a much bigger space for grappling, and a cage that they never before had.
“It’s bigger and it’s much more complete. Our athletes are much more comfortable,” Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao said.
“It has a cage now, and there’s much bigger space for us to spar. There’s no reason for us now to come in unprepared.”
“We just planned it this year, and four months ago we started working on it. It opened on 21 August because it was a holiday,” Sangiao shared.
“It will be the new headquarters of Team Lakay. We’re all excited but it got a bit delayed because of the bad weather.”
Sangiao has been a busy man as of late.
“I went to Bangkok to shop for new items. I bought gloves, pads, equipment for our athletes,” Sangiao said.
“We also looked for possible sponsorship for the equipment of the boys.”
“We’re fixing this so our athletes won’t have to worry about this in the future.”
