As his knowledge of Muay Thai as an industry and not just a combat sport grew, Philip Villa envisioned a brand of Muay Thai that would not just be limited to Thailand or neighboring countries, but would also extend to the rest of the world. So in 2010 he founded YOKKAO – the name is derived from the Thai word for white jade, which symbolizes an individual’s strength and connection with others.
YOKKAO has since grown and established itself as the most revolutionary brand in the Muay Thai and boxing industries. They are now recognized as a mainstay of design and marketing excellence not only for sparring gear, but also for apparel in the world of Muay Thai. In fact, YOKKAO is not limited to combat gear or workout clothes, it also extends to streetwear. This is in line with their vision of blending traditional Muay Thai gear and sparring apparel with the latest fashion trends and designs.
Philip’s vision is to develop Muay Thai and more particularly YOKKAO throughout the world. And soon, the brand will take another step by opening the company’s first office in Los Angeles. This will help to further strengthen its presence in the United States, which is already distributed there by Domita LLC, making it the first-ever Thai brand to be fully distributed in Asia, Europe and now in the United States. It would do wonders for Muay Thai and the entire combat sports industry. Holding the YOKKAO Seminar Tour 2022 in the United States should help strengthen this presence.
