Muay Thai’s Growing and Constant Popularity

Muay Thai

Muay Thai, beside with savate, karate, and taekwondo greatly influenced the growth of kickboxing in Japan and other part of the world.

On the other hand, not like Muay Thai, a lot of kickboxing fights do not permit elbow strikes, knee strikes, or kicks below the waist. These ruling changes have led some martial artists to consider practicing a 'watered down' version of Muay Thai.

Beginning in the 1990s, Muay Thai has benefitted from an increase in recognition worldwide as it has been extremely efficient in mixed martial arts training. MMA artists such as Rua, Wanderlei Silva, and Anderson Silva have joint a lot of striking elements of Muay Thai with grappling, wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into a hybrid mixture that has been greatly effective in their fights. Other fighters that have employed Muay Thai as their main technique in mixed martial arts including Rob McCullough, Duane Ludwig, Melvin Manhoef, Alistair Overeem and Gilbert Yvel.

Shoot-fighters and professional wrestlers who have trained and been influenced by Muay Thai including Satoru Sayama and Yoshiaki Fujiwara.

    This is a tough question! If you can do both, it would be great.Jiu-Jitsu is a must know. You eeednd to know the techniques, and how to escape. On the other hand, you eeednd Muay Thai also. You need striking skill. When you are fighting, you don’t always go to the ground right away. Well, it depend on who you are fight. Even a Jiu-Jitsu fighters sometime they are stand too when fighting.My suggestion for you is to do 6 months of Jiu-Jitsu, and 6 months of Muay Thai. That way, you have a little of both, orfind yourself a school that teach you both of Muay Thai, and Jiut-Jitsu at the same time. I hoped this help you. Good luck to you, and see you inside the Octagon.
