Malia Spanyol is a fighter. She trains in the tradition of Muay Thai, with a fierce determination despite bruises, bandages and bloody noses. But even after living in the Mission for more than a decade and owning Pop’s Bar on 24th Street, she has never had to use her combat skills outside the ring. She trains with world champion Miriam Nakamoto once a week at the Park Gym in the Mission. Her regular gym is El Nino Training Center on Third Street in Potrero Hill, with Muay Thai coach Jongsanan.
