MMA Phuket | Thailand Tips

 

MMA with combining Muay Thai

Thailand is a vast world seeped in spiritual customs and ancient traditions. One Thai born creation which encompasses these both is the sacred and savage martial art of “Muay Thai”, a long developed Thai style of kickboxing. For generations the Thai people have been honing and harnessing this devastating martial art, which uses eight points of contact on the human body to defeat an opponent in hand to hand combat situations; the fists, the elbows, the knees, and the shins.

It was not until recently this beautiful martial art began to mesh with the ever exploding – fastest growing – sport of mixed martial arts. MMA is a full combat, in which both competitors may use striking techniques while standing, wrestling or judo style takedowns for taking the fight off the feet, and submission or jiu jitsu style based attacks once on the ground. Spirit is a very important factor, as the Mindset in MMA reflects on the fighter’s ability to react fast and maintain durability in order to win.

    Hello, When I was in school days, I went to Thai Boxing class, I remember only the 3 basic punches: Cross and Jab and Hook? What a nostalgia… Now I live in Thailand and consider to start training. What is the price for training in this facility and do they give advice about nutrition? Thanks Benyamin
