This video clarifies some of my thoughts regarding the changing face of Muay Thai training in Thailand itself.

It’s going to be a long process, but it has begun.

Things are slowly changing in Thailand. And with traditional Muay Thai training habits so strongly embedded and blindly defended, it’s the foreigners that could be leading the way… time will tell.

The following quote is not meant to be disrespectful or deliberately provocative. It merely states a fact, based on a solid understanding of strength and conditioning for athletic performance.

“Currently, few gyms in Thailand have either the facilities or the knowledge to offer real strength and conditioning training, but this is changing.”
