“Muay Thai is a combat sport from the muay martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on foot is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fight very efficient.” — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muay_Thai
I started training Muay Thai in 2005 about 6 months before the birth of my son. I was very lonely with no friends (I still have no friends), and was a very big MMA fan. At that point in my life, the striking aspects of MMA interested me the most. Currently you could say that the submission grappling part of it appeals to me more. I’ve had 1 amature fight. It was basically a requirement on my way to attaining the rank of Kru. I got knocked out hard. lol. I haven’t had the guts to get back in since then.
