Developed over hundreds of years, the ancient martial art of Muay Thai is known for its tremendous power, maximum efficiency, and raw simplicity. Often referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs”, Muay Thai utilizes a beautiful symphony of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows with fluidity and grace.
Muay Thai is now one of the most well-known and practiced martial arts in the world. It has proven to be effective, which is why it is most common striking base in the vastly popular, fast-growing sport of mixed martial arts.
Muay Thai can certainly be dangerous for those who fight professionally, but for the casual trainer the risks are fairly minimal. If you are training Muay Thai for fun and fitness, doing pad work and bag work, then the most you are likely to pick up is an occasional bruise, or even wrist sprain at worst.
Muay Thai is also one of the few martial arts in the world that has been undeniably battle-tested and street certified for real-life encounters. Although widely regarded as a striking based martial art, Muay Thai also contains throwing techniques, locks, the using of an opponent’s own momentum, and even submissions.The techniques you learn in a Muay Thai class can keep you safe on the street.
The conditioning of mind, body, and spirit involved in Muay Thai also gives practitioners the confidence needed for real-life self-defense situations.
This was the most obvious benefit I gained. You can’t help getting fitter when training in a martial art as demanding as Muay Thai. My stamina improved, I had a lot more energy to carry myself throughout my day of work, and I was getting more muscular from the additional strength training I did to improve the game. Fitter, stronger, beter.
Fills Me Up With Joy
Muay Thai training is now my de facto stress management system. There are days when I feel down and the first thing that comes to mind is always “Muay Thai”. Everything about training makes my heart smile: from my kind instructors, to my awesome gym mates, the scent of my gym, to the grunts and heavy hitting sounds that fill the gym. But nothing works as well as getting completely exhausted from training to fill my entire being with a sense of joy. Or it’s just the endorphins, scientifically speaking. A thorough workout such as Muay Thai never fails to send a rush of endorphins that keeps me feeling relaxed. The improved quality of your sleep from working out hard also helps to keep my energy up throughout the day. So not only does it make me look good, Muay Thai makes me feel good too!
Builds Mental Strength
Muay Thai training is tough as hell and will often push you to your limits. You can either give up in the midst of training or you can stretch yourself and summon every last ounce of energy you have to push till the end. And the latter, is how training Muay Thai builds mental strength. Session after session, day after day, you just keep raising the bar for yourself. This continual process helped me to develop more focus and grit that translated to improved productivity in my work. This new found resilience made me wish I had started training Muay Thai at a younger age, as I can only imagine how much more I could have achieved. Better late than never.
Widens Social Circle
As my work is home-based over the past few years, I have had very little opportunities for meeting new people. There is a strong sense of camaraderie at the Muay Thai gym which makes it one of the best places to make new friends. You share a common interest and you are all working towards a common goal of improving your fitness or Muay Thai skills. Since I started Muay Thai, I have made friends of all ages and backgrounds, many of whom I have forged deep friendships with, due to our common love for Muay Thai.
