Why Is Muay Thai Good For You?

We’re all busy, and working out tends to be something we fit in more often than not.  We know we need it, we kind of want it, and we do what we can to make it happen…within reason.  Our hobbies drift away in about the same way and for the same reasons.  Things we enjoy start to become secondary and that’s a real shame.  What if you could do something you enjoy, while getting in shape, and learning to defend yourself all at the same time?!

Do you think you would find time for that?

Why Muay ThaiMuay Thai is the ancient art of self-defense from Thailand, and along with the UFC has been gaining massive popularity in America recently. People of all levels and ages have been getting involved, from beginners looking to get in great shape to experienced martial artists looking for a change and a practical self-defense method for real life.

Whatever your motivation Muay Thai has something for you.  Here are just a few benefits to consider:

Health and Fitness
The very nature of Muay Thai training is to work your entire body and improve your fitness levesl.   Our typical beginners’ Muay Thai classes in Lynchbburg, Virginia focus on the fundamentals:  your stance, your footwork, basic punches, basic kicks, knees and elbows, and a variety of defense techniques.   Combined with mandatory pre-workout warm-ups and stretching, you will begin to feel different and notice.

Self-Defense
Muay Thai is mostly about inner strength and self-discipline, but it is also one of the most practical self-defense arts that exists. No one likes to think about a confrontation but the sad truth is that it’s a real possibility.  Any proper Muay Thai class will provide you with the necessary self-defense skills to protect yourself in those situations.

Self-Discipline
Muay Thai goes well beyond just kicking, punching, and elbows.  It’s an art rooted in self-discipline and it will help you learn how to develop it and channel it both in to your training as well as other aspects of your life.

Be Part of a Team!
Muay Thai is great for building camaraderie and mutual respect. At the Renaissance Academy we treat everything this way.  There’s nothing better than sharing and celebrating your successes and experiences with other people going through it with you!
