Three Benefits of Muay Thai Kickboxing

April 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

Benefit 1: You will get in phenomenal shape

The art of Muay Thai Kickboxing takes a great amount of discipline and an amazing amount of time and self control to master. The best part of this though over other martial arts is that every class is a workout. You will sweat and get stronger with every class. This on top of you learning how to punch, kick, elbow, and knee properly makes for a very self-defense technique. Classes will average anywhere from forty five minutes of constant movement. The reason for this is that the art of Muay Thai itself, is very fast paced and focuses on constant pressure and constant movement. The workout you will get from Muay Thai kickboxing will be one of the best you'll receive anywhere.

Benefit 2: You will learn the most devastating and effective self-defense skill you can learn.

Muay Thai has been around for almost one thousand years. It was used as a self-defense technique against adversaries with swords or other weapons. Muay Thai Kickboxing emphasizes the use of the hands, feet, knees, and elbows. These in combination with each other form a martial art that has stood the test of time and will help you defend yourself in any scenario. The reason why this has been regarded as the best martial art is because it has been put to the test against other martial arts. In the 1970's masters in kung fu, wing chun, and karate challenged Muay Thai to see which martial art was the superior. All of the people who stood against Muay Thai were finished in the first round. This goes to show that if Muay Thai can fend off some of the most well known martial arts, then it can defend against the common street thug.

Benefit 3: With your new found physique and self-defense skills you'll have a new found self-confidence.

You'll be in better shape. You'll have started learning one of the most devastating martial arts to have ever been invented. These two things will give you an extreme amount of self-confidence. No other self-defense technique conditions you to get hit. That's why all of the other martial arts didn't stand a chance. You will be pushed harder than you ever have before. The truth is that a lot of the times if someone confronts you in a street fight scenario you will get hit. The training Muay Thai offers will make it so you can take the hits and properly defend yourself.
