Is Muay Thai good for self-defense?
Absolutely! Learning one of the most effective stand-up striking systems martial arts has ever produced will help you defend against assult. Muay Thai defense is effective against unarmed strikes, as practitioners train to keep a guard, which allows for the minimum response time to prevent an assailant from contacting vital parts of your body. Like most martial arts, Muay Thai helps develop an awareness of your surroundings, excellent hand-eye coordination, and quick response time.
Yes, Muay Thai Kickboxing is one of the most effective forms of self-defense in the world. You will learn from Trainers with first hand experience (in the ring, not the street of course!), so you will only be taught tried and proven techniques. It focuses on simple and powerful techniques that will work under pressure.
