Shave Rick’s Stache: Change the Face of Muaythai

Not all mustaches are created equal.

While some mos are started fresh, grown for 30 days, then ritualistically shaved in a showing of support for Movember others are cultivated for over years and take on a life of their own. The world has no shortage of legendary mustaches; Tom Selleck, Salvador Dali, Fu Manchu, and Burt Reynolds are classic examples of mustache styles recognized instantly by name.

The Ontario Muaythai community has its own legendary mustache, possessed by none other than Rick Maresch of Twin Dragon North. Rick has been growing, trimming, and picking food out of his mustache for over 30 years. It’s become such a core part of his identity that no one can imagine him without it.

So naturally we want to shave it.

 

How This Works

Back Forward Kick is raising funds for the Canadian Movember Foundation, and if we’re successful in raising $1,500 we get to shave Rick’s mustache at Muaystache on November 25th. Rick has agreed to step in the ring at intermission and allow one of our talented barbers work their magic, but only if we hit our fundraising goal.
