Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang is officially back to the grind.

After spending months in isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 27-year-old feels thrilled to be training with his stablemates once again.

“I am really pumped up to be back in the gym after a long time. I really missed being here,” Adiwang said.

The fifth-ranked ONE Championship strawweight can now focus on improving his skills, something which fell by the wayside during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

Adiwang goes to Team Lakay four days a week for sparring and drills, and then he works at his home gym on the other days.

“One thing I really enjoy the most is training with my teammates, something that I wasn’t able to do during the ECQ. When you have high-level training partners, it makes your improvement a whole lot faster,” Adiwang said.

“Certainly, there are adjustments. When I was in quarantine, I made a training room in my home so I can lift weights without having to go out. And now that we’re here in the new normal, I still use it.”

Though life is starting to return to normal, there are still many uncertainties about when this crisis will truly be contained.

In the meantime, Adiwang — knowing how quickly things can be taken away — is making the most out of his time with his teammates.

“There are a lot of things I’ve learned in the past few months,” he said.

“The biggest thing is the importance of the simple things — the things that we often take for granted.”
