Somar’s proud Prince

Woodenman Muay Thai

Mondo the Prince_2-5-20

We would like to recognize Armando “The Prince” Ramos as a certified representative and trainer of Woodenman Muay Thai Systems! He worked tirelessly winning amateur titles as an old school SF Fairtex fighter, then earned the nick name “Bone Crusher” as a pro because he would often break his opponent’s bones during fights, and is now a successful instructor producing his own champions.

He is successful in his career promoting art, culture, and community at his popular bar Somar in Oakland, but continues to dedicate time and heart to Muay Thai simply for the love of the art.
