Let me preface this post by saying that I have the utmost respect for all forms of martial arts and this post is in no way meant to degregate any forms out there. For all you folks who are looking to get into martial arts and are having a hard time deciding on a discipline, let me make the case for Muay Thai. In terms of practicality, practicality as in all options have been exhausted and you need to defend yourself from an idiot looking for a fight, Muay Thai is your best bet. Punches, kicks, knees, elbows…Muay Thai will teach you how to defend yourself with everything at your disposal and it will do so in a manner where it puts confidence in your corner. Let me offer a few basic instructional videos below to help you get a taste of the awesomeness and the practicalness of Muay Thai, but not only for self defense but also as a pure technical sport.
