Benefits of training Muay Thai for Women
Strong is the new sexy! More and more women are looking to empower themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Muay Thai training for women is just the perfect way to achieve this.
Over the last few years, Muay Thai, also known as the art of eight limbs, has become increasingly popular among women. It used to be a predominantly male sport, but even though it is still testosterone dominated, women are steadily eating into a much larger percentage of that domination.
In Thailand where it originated as a pure martial art form, muay thai is not just a sport, it is a way of life. Heck! I think it would have been incorporated into their education curriculum without much fuss if they actually wanted to.
More and more foreigners are flying into Thailand every day now for the sole purpose of muay thai training. This is not to take anything away from the fact that it is a fabulous tourist destination on its own, with all the culture and fully expressed traditions. Every nation has something unique about them and available inside their borders that make tourists want to visit, but Thailand has several. I dare say that they have more tourism worthy attractions than anywhere else in the world by quite some distance. I would like to include China into that exclusive list, but I still feel Thailand trumps big time.
It is very important to first understand that muay thai is a martial art form, so it is usually primarily for fighters. As women, it would be completely understandable if you are not interested in fighting, as it is also a great way to keep physically fit. Whatever your purpose for training muay thai is, it always helps achieve its maximum potential. For example; if your reason for training muay thai is to become a fighter, it makes you one badass battle warrior. If it is for weight loss purposes, you would shed pounds like you wouldn't believe. If it is for the purpose of general physical fitness, I do not know any other form of exercise that does it better. Other benefits like discipline, endurance, longsuffering and self control which by the way, are mental, are also included in this awesome muay thai training package.
There are several training camps all over Thailand. Many are similar, many dissimilar, and all with their peculiarities. It is important to choose the right camp for you. Several factors to consider are:
3. Gender Friendliness
4. Farang (foreigner) friendliness
It is up to you to decide what best suits your needs. When next you are making travel plans, ensure your primary destination is Thailand. Take some time off from all of the domestic duties, either solo or with the family. Thailand promises to offer you the best tourism experience ever.
