Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a combat sport and a form of weaponless self-defense. Many people build their opinion about Muay Thai based on movies and they think that Muay Thai is an aggressive and brutal discipline that is meant only for professional athletes. These people don’t realize that Muay Thai is a lot more than that. Muay Thai can also be viewed as a good physical and spiritual exercise. Muay Thai training will activate the body in aerobic and anaerobic way, and what is great about Muay Thai is that you don’t need to be already athletically fit so you can begin with training. Although you don’t have to be fit one thing is for sure – you will get fitter after a while!
