Like any other combative art form, Muay Thai has a set of laws which govern the functionality within the art, making it formalized so that a uniform level of participation can make it gradable enough to become an international sport, which is exactly what is happening since the rest of the world first got exposed to the Thai combative art of Muay Thai.
Muay Thai is essentially a very traditional form of kickboxing, practiced predominantly in its country of birth, Thailand, but it has since spread across the world like a wild fire, with more and more combative arts establishments venturing into this art of the eight limbs to add to their plethora of combative arts offerings.
Muay Thai has managed to make its way all the way to the Western world, with a number of Western Muay Thai practitioners emerging to amass some skill levels which could possibly match some of the best in the native land of where Muay Thai came from, so it would make for a great idea for a novice to get their nose into the combative arts by taking up Muay Thai.
There are basically only two requirements to get into the world of Muay Thai, and those exist in the form of a burning desire to learn and improve, as well as the willingness of the participant to make a couple of sacrifices of time and energy, in order to ensure they amass the levels of development and progression that will make the whole exercise worth their while.
Once the budding Muay Thai practitioner has those two traits firmly instilled in them, they are ready to enter into a whole new world of the combative arts — one which has benefits that surpass some of those of the other combative arts on offer, simply because of the rich traditional base on which Muay Thai training principles are preserved and facilitated.
When you undergo training for Muay Thai and you are constantly exposed to the Muay Thai training principles, in their purest form, you will realize a level of advancement in just about all areas of your life, generally improving the overall quality of your life and not just your combative arts skills.
Muay Thai training principles may not be displayed directly during combat, but you will definitely see them in action if you undergo the training itself, which is one of the many reasons why Muay Thai practitioners are so gracious, even in the wake of facing defeat, simply because they know just how much more benefits they gained out of the journey of Muay Thai training.
While many combative artists do indeed get into the combative arts to win, Muay Thai teaches that even if you end up on the losing side, you haven’t really lost since you will personally know just how much you have benefited from merely participating in Muay Thai training.
Some of the benefits include looking and feeling younger for longer, which is why some dedicated Muay Thai practitioners from the East live really long, being able to defend yourself as well as enjoying a healthier body and mind.
