While I was waiting for the bus for Phuket last week, I met Gary from Liverpool, United Kingdom who was also going in the same route as mine. I learned that he has been in Thailand for five years now and is happily married to a Thai woman and is doing Muay Thai training for a living.
Muay Thai…who would not know it? It’s the Thai boxing which is all over Thai TV all throughout the day. It is also making a name globally with lots and lots of foreigners wanting to learn the sport. Gary said, Muay Thai isn’t just all about sport – it is also an excellent tool for self-defense. He even invited me to try one session to see if I might like it.
I told him that maybe for now I’ll settle for some stun gun for my self-defense. Muay Thai is just not too fit for me.
