What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing, is a beautiful, yet brutal martial art, that originated from the warriors of Thailand. Practically every nation in the world has a historical record of fostering and development of martial arts, with or without the use of a weapon. Muay Thai, a combat sport of Thailand, is one of the oldest combat sports. Its founding was a consequence of constant battles of Thai people that developed specific deadly and close combat fighting skills. This skill needed to be learned fast and it was to be quickly applied in battlefields. At first, Muay Thai was supposed to be used in warfare, but it soon started turning into a sport performed for entertainment in front of spectators in various places – from local village tournaments to temples and even palaces. In recent times this skill was shaped as a sport in 1921, the year when the first Thailand’s boxing ring was built.
What Muay Thai Can Do For You
Muay Thai is Great for Cardio Training
This one is obvious. Cardiovascular activity burns calories. Getting your heart rate up, and keeping it up throughout your workout, works out your heart and gets that fat burning. There aren’t many martial arts that can compare with the cardio workout you get from Muay Thai. The constant motion, round after round of punching, kicking, and conditioning drills that come with every Muay Thai workout are sure to burn fat and elevate your heart rate.
Muay Thai Increases Your Strength
Muscles burn fat. The more muscle you have, the more fat you are burning throughout the day, even while you are sitting at work. You can lose up to ½ lb of muscle mass every year, so it’s important to keep up with weight lifting and/or resistance training repetitions. In Muay Thai, every time you strike, whether it is an elbow, punch, knee or kick, you are tensing your muscles to their maximum at the final moment of impact. After a few rounds of Muay Thai, you will feel the fatigue. This is because the tensing of the muscles for strength is just like the effect of lifting weights or using resistance bands. In one Muay Thai class you could do hundreds of repetitions of punches and kicks, resulting in a full strength training workout.

Muay Thai is Great for Self Defense
While Muay Thai is great for conditioning, it also teaches you to be very resilient and tough, a very aggressive fighting style and is able to flow smoothly between the kicking, punching and clinching range. The clinch (close quarter) range in Muay Thai is very formidable, allowing you to control, strike and sweep your attacker. It is great for self defense…but in some ways, Muay Thai is also limited.
