Life in the western world is based on hard work. This is what makes the west the leader in the world. But it has its own downfalls… and the biggest one among them is that most people in the west are overworked and under severe stress, all the time. This in turn has a very bad effect on how most people feel, act or behave. Well, if you want to remedy this situation, you need to think East for a while… and go on a holiday to Phuket island, Thailand.
Thailand is indeed known for a host of things – not the least of them being that there’s an incredibly active night life which you can enjoy with your friends or by yourself. But if you really want to rest and recover from the hard work on your business, then you need to do something different. We recommend to you to start training Muay Thai.
For those among you that don’t know, Muay Thai is a martial art from the 16th century developed in Thailand, and is one of the most devastating weapons you can use in hand to hand combat. Muay Thai emerged from the underground in the beginning of the 20th century when Muay Thai martial artists have begun demolishing their opponents from other martial arts schools in competition.
Phuket island has a few notable schools you can visit in order to learn the art of Muay Thai. To be fair if you pick any single training camp in this area, you’ll do well, and this is because, as we mentioned, Muay Thai is created in Thailand and is Thailand’s native martial art. As we all know the eastern people are somewhat obsessed with martial arts, so when we say that the Thai people are obsessed with Muay Thai, this is a testament to the skills they possess in this martial art.
The best-known school here is called Tiger Muay Thai, and it is known worldwide among martial arts practitioners. This is because some of the best Muay Thai instructors are teaching in this school, and some of the best Muay Thai practitioners, and martial artists in general, come to train to this school. There are a few other notable schools here, such as Sumalee Boxing Gym, Kingka Supa Muay Thai, Suwit Muay Thai Camp or BestMuaythai.com , and you can do some research on the internet and see which one would suit you best.
And Muay Thai will do wonders for your health. Studies consistently show that exercise is the miracle drug that will boost the function of your entire body – and Muay Thai offers a great way to exercise. The best thing though about all of this is that life in Thailand is really cheap, as compared to life in the west. So, in short, you’ll do good if you decide to travel to the country of Thailand and spend a few months learning Muay Thai. But if you don’t have a few free months, then just a few weeks of training will improve your life in many, many ways.
