Muay Thai and Women

Although it’s true that martial arts were used only by men until recently, there are more and more women who use these arts as fitness activities or even for becoming professional fighters. When they use them as fitness activity they are looking for a way to relieve the stress that builds up in their body, but also to lose weight and improve their health.
Thai boxing or Muay Thai is one of the oldest martial arts in Asia and in the world. It is obvious that this sport originates from Thailand. Those who are not very experienced in these sports probably won’t notice much difference between Muay Thai and other martial arts, but there is a huge difference. So, in addition to the use of arms and legs there is a lot of clinching and throwing of the opponents and knee and elbow strikes. The rules allow grabbing and holding of the legs of the opponent and flying kicks.
Muay Thai is a very interesting and highly dynamic combat sport because of the many fist and feet techniques. Although the chances of getting injured today are really low it is advised to use good protective equipment and to be monitored by true professional trainers. They can be found in almost any Muay Thai training camp in Thailand.
Most women choose this sport because of the opportunity to improve their self-defense techniques. But, as we have mentioned before this is not the only benefit of practicing this type of training – improved stamina, endurance, physique, spirit and mind are some of the other things every man and woman can get from Muay Thai. Women have started practicing Muay Thai few years ago. When it comes to Muay Thai as a fitness activity the basic goal is to increase strength and endurance which ultimately leads to better self-esteem and self-confidence. Muay Thai training tones muscles, melts extra pounds and strengthens all categories of muscles. Women can get attractive buttocks and abs in no time.
Keep in mind that you can visit a beautiful beach once the training is finished. If you want to travel to Thailand remember to find a good camp and affordable plane ticket.
