WHAT IS MUAY THAI?

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand.  It was developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon. Today, Muay Thai is becoming very popular on a global scale.   It was recently accepted as an Olympic Sport, finally gaining its deserved recognition.  Professional martial artists from all sides of the fighting spectrum agree, Muay Thai is essential to becoming an all-around multifaceted fighter.  As new training camps and gyms open around the world, Muay Thai continues to grow in popularity.

Muay Thai became a part of my life back in 2010 when I was 35 but boxing was my first sport back when I was 15 years old. When I first tried Muay Thai, I liked it better than I liked boxing.  I like to joke and say “boxing is like checkers and Muay Thai like chess.”  After a few MMA competitions, I decided to give up competing in order to put family first.  Though I’ve given up competing, I never gave up practicing at home what I learned from Combat Zone and the most excellent instructors that sacrificed their time and patience in order to help me improve myself at the art of Muay Thai. 
Now, I’m willing to do the same as my instructors did at Combat Zone and share the knowledge of Muay Thai and over all fitness to anyone willing to be a student of the art.

I first received Christ in May of 1995, but never fully served God.  After years of running from God, a near death experience I had in June of 2019 had me contemplating life after death.  It took a while, but I finally rededicated my life completely to the Lord in September of 2019 and have not looked back.  Jesus is my Lord!
