Muay Thai for Self-Defense
All the Muay Thai techniques that we know today have been formed over a period of more than 500 years. This means that Muay Thai is not some kind of trendy combat sport or fitness discipline. The effectiveness of these techniques has been proven for many times. Before we go into details we will first mention few other things that each Muay Thai enthusiasts should know.
First of all, Muay Thai is a martial art that was designed and first used in Thailand. Ever since it was introduced, it was accepted by all Thai people and this fighting style has helped many people preserve their properties and lives. Today, Muay Thai is the national and most popular sport in Thailand. It is part of their culture and the matches take place in many ceremonies. So, if you are planning to practice Muay Thai training for self-defense or for any other purpose, you must travel to Thailand and join a training camp there. Luckily, it is not hard to find a good Muay Thai camp in Thailand because every popular holiday destination in Thailand has access to at least a dozen of these facilities.
As we have already said, Muay Thai was probably developed in the jungles of Thailand where people had to do everything they can to protect themselves. This doesn’t mean that Muay Thai training is focused only on defense movements. This is a perfect combination of offensive and defensive tactics that will keep any individual safe. What makes Muay Thai special is that this sport allows practitioners to defend themselves against attackers that are taller and even against attackers that weigh more than themselves. This is one of the reasons why women are so interested in Muay Thai.
In addition, training in Thailand is very inspiring because of the beauty of this country, so you won’t be left disappointed or bored. When it comes to Muay Thai and self-defense it is also good to know that the training classes in these camps are focused on achieving perfect coordination, flexibility and mobility in each student regardless of their age, gender and fitness level. The training involves a set of exercises that will activate different body parts and make the practitioner stronger. While they are at the camp, students will practice shadow boxing too. They will work together with other students in order to feel some real action because theoretical knowledge in a combination with practice is the best way to improve self-defense techniques.
In order to be able to protect yourself, you must become stronger. Muay Thai will shape your muscle and overall body and help you learn how to anticipate the movement of your opponent. Of course, we should not forget the positive impact of Muay Thai training on our mental health. With this type of training students can easily eliminate anxiety and fear and develop good discipline and improve self-esteem and self-confidence.
We hope that this close relation between Muay Thai and self-defense will encourage you to travel to Thailand.
