Getting trained in Muay Thai means that someone is going to learn some serious fighting skills. The training consists of learning how to use your fists, feet, knees, elbows, and shins in offensive and defensive moves. Although some gyms permit young teens to be trained in this sport, many will only grant access to adults.

What Is It?

Muay Thai is a martial art that was developed in Thailand many centuries ago. Thailand often experienced wars with its neighbors at the time and this form of fighting was developed for their survival. Today, in the United States, it is much more of a sport, but it is still very challenging and training can be tough.

Get Physically Fit

One of the greatest benefits of taking classes in this sport is to gain an incredible level of fitness. It will exercise every part of your body, helping you to lose weight and get in great shape. Many different forms of fitness training will be used such as jogging, rope jumping, abdominal exercises, possibly weight training, and more.

Work with the bag will also be emphasized, as well as training with the pads and focus mitts. Your cardiovascular system will also be strengthened. You will gain flexibility, and a much better focus and ability to concentrate.

Other Benefits

You will also certainly learn self-discipline as you practice the moves, strikes, and blocks over and over to perfect them. It will enable you to choose to do other tasks in life and meet challenges that can help you succeed where others might fail.

Another benefit is that you will obtain a determination to continue – even when you hurt and don’t feel like it. It will also give you a large amount of self-confidence.

Men and Women

There are classes for both men and women. It provides an excellent method of self-defense and its goal is to put down an opponent or assailant as quickly as possible. This gives both sexes the confidence of knowing that they are prepared if need be – but peaceful solutions are always preferred when possible.

The Classes

The classes are kept rather small so that people can receive more individualized training. There are different levels, and those who want to compete are in a separate class – once they get far enough in the training. Equipment will need to be purchased once you advance to the higher classes.


Sparring is apt to be a part of the training once you reach a certain level of ability. It will likely be kept minimal, light to medium, in order to ensure safety, then it may get tougher slowly and expand as you become better and learn more. Students who choose to enter competition will be exposed to full contact when ready.
