Muay Thai is a unique martial art in that no other martial art uses the shin quite like Thai Boxers do. In Muay Thai, you kick with your shin, not your foot! This can cause some discomfort in the beginning or after your first fight.
As the holiday festivities draw to a close and New Year’s resolutions are made, it’s time to start thinking about how to take your Muay Thai game to the next level.
Why would you ever want to take a break from Muay Thai? But I get it, sometimes you have to. Whether it’s taking a few days off after a major tournament, a few weeks off to focus on another area of your life, or a few months off due to medical reasons or change in life situation, getting back into training is tough.
Authentic Muay Thai fights and even knee or elbow strikes in popularized UFC fights tend to result in brutal and bloody scenes. Thousands of years ago, those movements were designed to cause maximum devastation as quickly as possible. Muay Thai practiced in a “training” setting is a scene that focuses on technique and less on blood and destruction.
Muay Thai Words Translated from Thai to English
Muay Thai is an ancient martial art dating back to 2nd or 3rd B.C. Thailand; the fighting style did not become an official sport beyond Thai warrior use until the 1400’s. Though Muay Thai has been around for a long time, regulations weren’t introduced to competitive fighting until the 1930’s.
