Are you passionate about this martial art? Or are you only just introducing yourself to this world? No matter the answer, practicing this discipline has many benefits both at the physical and emotional levels.

Click here if you want to know more about Muay Thai in Sydney.

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider practicing this discipline:

  1. Muay Thai is the most effective striking art in the world. It has been tested in competition and real-life situations for hundreds of years, refining the art to be as fast, efficient, and powerful as it can be. Also, the fact that it is consistently being tested in combat between highly skilled practitioners has developed every aspect of the art to an extremely high level.
  2. Muay Thai is a great way to learn self defence: if you happen to be a woman, then the likelihood of trouble simply increases, no matter which city you are in. This training aids you in developing those necessary self-defence tactics that will help you in facing real-life encounters. You can give your enemy a tough competition and might be able to catch him off-guard. The tactics you learn as a student can be used to pin down an opponent with various clinch techniques. Within a span of six months of training, an average person will learn the required skills to defend oneself.
  3. If you’re looking to lose some weight, it is the perfect full body workout. This is because it is both an aerobic and anaerobic workout, and it involves various muscle groups. It is specifically designed to promote the level of fitness and toughness required for ring competition even for recreational practitioners. With running, jumping rope and shadowboxing, it provides an aerobic workout to prepare you for more intense workouts. This training also builds great anaerobic endurance with exercises like punching and kicking on the pads or bags, and clinching to work your body to its limits. With just 60 minutes of training, you can burn up to 1,000 calories. That means you’ll be melting away fat while building up your flexibility, core, as well as overall strength.
  4. It is easy to learn: while there are hundreds of different techniques in Muay Thai, it is also a martial art known for its raw simplicity. In Thailand, it is actually more common for practitioners to start as young as five or six years old. So no matter your age or fitness, there’s a class that will work for you.
  5. Muay Thai Acts as a Stress Reliever: working out is directly linked to the body’s stress hormones. When you exercise, stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol witness a drop in their levels and at the same time, our body begins to produce endorphins.
  6. Even if you’re not the most disciplined person around to begin with, practicing this will teach you the value of self-discipline. This is because you’ll learn to commit to your goals and stick to your training schedule. You will also understand the value of hard work when you see yourself grow and move closer towards your goals.
  7. Improves the mobility of the hips: keeping your body mobile and strong is very important to prevent injuries. Making your hips and body flexible is not easy and may not come overnight. This training may speed up this process.
  8. It has become one of the key foundations of mixed martial arts (MMA). Some of MMA’s greatest fighters and champions use this art as their main striking base. Its vast range of techniques allows an MMA fighter to have many tools to use during a fight.
  9. It gives you confidence: once you learn self-defence techniques, you will have reduced stress and anxiety, you will be physically more in shape than before, you could start feeling a confidence boost like never before. Also, this discipline not only trains your body but mind too, you can develop spontaneity, both in reflexes and in decisions and become the best version of yourself.
  10. It may boost your endurance and make the heart stronger: intense training will raise your heart rate and improve the VO2 max levels in the long run. In the long run, this can boost your cardio, reduce blood pressure, and make the heart stronger.
