If there is one thing that scientists around the world completely agree on, it’s that physical exercise has a profoundly powerful effect on your body, and that it improves the health of most anyone who partakes in it. For those that thing that there’s only one way to exercise and that it makes exercising boring – you have another thing coming. As a matter of fact, there are hundreds of different ways in which you can exercise your body, but the one we like the most is through martial arts.
Why we like martial arts so much is because of what they offer – and they offer functional exercising of your body, with the added benefit of giving you knowledge of one of the most important life skills you can attain – how to defend yourself.
Now of course, there are different martial arts, and not all of them are created equal. This means that some are better than some others. And we feel is perhaps the best martial art of them all, is Muay Thai.
Muay Thai is a martial art originating in the country of Thailand – and coincidentally this is where the best Muay Thai instructors in the world are practicing their craft. So, if you want to learn Muay Thai from the best of the best, we suggest that you should travel to Thailand and learn there.
Muay Thai offers a way to exercise your entire. For example, there’s a lot of striking and kicking with your hands, elbows, knees and shins. This as you may imagine, will improve the composition of your arms and legs, and make them a lot stronger. Also, Muay Thai is a wonderful exercise for the core of your body. The core consists of every muscle that’s in the middle of your body – not just the six-pack! As it turns out, Muay Thai has a lot of clinch work and from this range you can use your knees to kick your opponent’s body. In turn he will kick you as well, and absorbing these kicks without severely injuring yourself will result in you building a stronger mid-section that can take all but the most powerful blows.
Also, you’ll build terrific cardiovascular endurance by learning Muay Thai. Most of the Muay Thai schools in Thailand have a 15-minute warmup session, using the jump rope. If you jump on a rope for the first time in your life, you’ll realize that it’s incredibly hard and demanding on your cardiovascular strength. Given time you’ll improve the function of your heart and blood flow, which will improve your conditioning immensely.
All in all, you should definitely seek out a Muay Thai regular course immediately. The best way to do this is to perform an initial research online, and seek out a website of a Muay Thai school in Thailand. If you follow our advice and travel to Thailand, you’ll start to see the results of it starting immediately. So, don’t postpone and go to Thailand immediately, or as soon as you get the first chance to go.
