Christopher M. Aboy Inspires Others by Hosting T.A.G. Muay Thai’s First Female Seminar With Anissa Meksen

The path leading toward the fulfillment of a dream is paved with challenges and difficulties that can ultimately mold any person into the strongest version of themselves. True enough, anyone who has embarked on the journey of accomplishing goals can attest to the significance of embodying courage and perseverance in the face of any endeavor. Such is the case with Christopher M. Aboy, the esteemed founder of T.A.G. Muay Thai. Through his relentless drive, he is now teaching interested individuals martial arts and equipping them with the skills to defend themselves against danger and harm. 

Recently, T.A.G. Muay Thai hosted a seminar for their first-ever female athlete, Anissa Meksen, a French-Algerian 18-times world kickboxing champion under multiple organizations, such as Glory, ISKA, WAKO, the WBC, and many more. Chris brought her out right after her most recent victory in One Championship last October 1, 2022, against Dangkongfah Banchamek. She flew all the way from Singapore, came back home to France, and then went to the United States for the event. To date, Anissa Meksen has a record of 122 fights with 118 wins and 35 Knockouts.

During the seminar, Anissa Meksen taught different combos primarily directed toward controlling distance and angling. By the end, as the attendees were about to take a group picture, the girls were going to kneel in the front row. However, Anissa made quite an impression on the attendees when she stopped the girls from kneeling and asked the boys to get on their knees instead. This gesture got a big standing ovation from the girls attending the said event.

Aside from getting the T.A.G. treatment, Anissa Meksen was able to immerse herself in other experiences during her stay in the United States. As a matter of fact, she got to visit Washington D.C. and other major monuments, including the Washington Monument itself. Although she is most prominent for her outstanding performance in the field of martial arts, the star athlete also enjoys other hobbies like collecting sneakers. As a big sneakers enthusiast and a huge Michael Jordan fan, she has over a hundred pairs of Jordans. 

Proving to be unstoppable at her game, Anissa Meksen has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Quite the contrary, she believes that her career has only just begun. She wants to inspire aspiring athletes to go after their dreams and be fearless in the pursuit of their goals. 

In an interview, Chris revealed that he aims to continue doing for others what he has done for Anissa Meksen. According to the luminary, nothing brings him joy more than being able to help dreamers reach the pinnacles of success. At the heart of his craft lies the underlying goal of teaching others to become stronger, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. In fact, it was for this very reason that he created T.A.G. Muay Thai, a Muay Thai gym located in Sterling, Virginia. 

Hailed as the premier Thai boxing center in Northern Virginia, his gym, T.A.G. Muay Thai, has already established a reputable standing for being the go-to place for anyone who wants to learn self-defense, participate in a combative sport, and engage in martial arts and other fitness-related activities.
