The ability for one to be able to defend themselves is always something great to have but when it becomes a necessity, one would rather tell a tale of how lucky they were to have had the foresight to be prepared, rather than tell a story of how they wished they had been prepared.
The sad reality of modern day living is that something like having the ability to defend yourself could prove to be very vital — so vital that it could be a matter of life and death or one which could help you avoid a very traumatic eventuality with a number of heartless and cruel perpetrators roaming the face of this earth, just waiting to cause trouble for others, and they generally tend to go for targets which appear to be weaker.
Now, there are a number of ways through which one could prepare themselves for any situation which would require them to defend themselves, one of which is via the combative arts and the advantage of doing so through the combative arts is that it is completely legal and doesn’t come with complications of something like requiring a firearm license.
On top of that, preparing yourself for self defense via the combative arts also entails the process of constructing a much fitter and healthier body, so it isn’t done for the sole purpose of preparing for self defense situations, but rather as a holistic approach to a better quality of life, in a very natural way.
The focus will be placed squarely on the combative art of Muay Thai for self defense and Muay Thai makes a very strong case as to why it is the best form of the combative arts for self defense preparation. Muay Thai for self defense gets its effectiveness mainly in the fact that Muay Thai is a traditional form of the fighting arts, which means it isn’t as well known as some of the other forms of the combative arts.
How that is advantageous comes through the fact that a perpetrator who is suddenly faced with an onslaught from someone who makes use of the fighting principles of Muay Thai, does not know how to effectively react to the somewhat unorthodox striking methods that come standard with Muay Thai, so it is very likely to be much more effective than any other standard combative art form.
In addition to that, Muay Thai is very specific in which parts of the body can be used in combat, hence the name “The science of the eight limbs”, with more of a focus on striking combat to either deliver a decisive blow to the opponent or gradually wear them down by constant pelting.
Muay Thai practitioners who also practice other forms of the combative arts, or those who have previously been involved in other forms of the combative arts, are very likely to claim that they would choose Muay Thai in real life combat if they had to choose just one out of all the combative arts they practice.
