Muay Thai is a striking art of Thailand that utilizes attacks from the fists, elbows, knees, and feet. Strikes can be thrown from long, mid, or close range. There is also an element of grappling in Muay Thai referred to as the clinch. Very different from the grappling techniques used in our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but none the less effective. Clinch maneuvers are used to set up knee and elbow strikes or to throw your opponent to the ground. Since competition requires that practitioners possess a large number of athletic qualities, the benefits that accompany learning Muay Thai are numerous.
Below are a few of the top benefits from practicing Muay Thai.
Muay Thai places huge demand on your cardiopulmonary systems. With progressive, structured practice, your body will adapt to the demands of the sport, and improved cardiovascular performance is one of the most significant benefits.
Kicking and footwork play a large role in Muay Thai. One movement that is distinctive to Muay Thai is the roundhouse kick. Learning how to kick strengthens the musculature of the lower body. Every muscle in your lower body will benefit from practicing the various kicks and footwork drills incorporated in the sport. From muscle endurance, force production, agility, to just plain old good looking calves, Muay Thai delivers.
The rotational nature of all of the movements in the sport truly does strengthen your core. Getting punched in the body will also help a little. Striking, defensive movements, and clinching will all help the muay Thai student develop a strong core.
AThe majority of us accumulate a fair amount of stress during the day. Having an outlet for that stress feels fantastic and can work wonders for your mental and physical health. Due to the fast-paced nature of the sport, you can’t trouble yourself with worry while training. Doing something regularly that detaches you from the daily grind helps you become a happier and more carefree individual.
