Any fans of thai boxing and k1?
I've met the world champion, shuki
He was visiting my trainer that has trained him before he left to thailand
One day a friend had said to me that i have Height and Power Necessaries to practice this Sport
But, this sport has too much fisic contact, is some dangerous no?
I have only seen this martial art in the film Ong-Bak and it has some great amount of physical contact. It is not the usual fist-2-fist fight. The elbow knocks are really hard and painful.
I train a little Muay Thai, an awesome art, so devastating.
I want to train more to help my stand-up in MMA.
Ong-Bak - very cool film too!
thai boxing is good sport with high spirit
Jiujitsu still rules in MMA. Submission makes Muay Thai primitive in the Octagon. You guys should watch UFC and PRIDEFC. However, when it comes to the streets, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Jee Kune Do, Aikido and strikes disciplines rules. You can't effectively use submission against three guys. However, in a one on competition like in UFC, submission makes strikes pretty obsolete.
You've got to admire Muay Thai fighters for their fighting spirit and the way they train. Every martial art has fighters that train hard and have lots of fighting spirit, but I would say that it is more prevalent in Muay Thai. The bad thing, is that a lot of Thai fighters only see Muay Thai as a sport.
