Are You Ready to Compete? Become an Amateur Muay Thai Fighter?


People do sports for many reasons. But there are two main ones: Passion, and Competition. For some, learning the art and receiving the health benefits are enough. They are passionate about it, and love to practice it daily. Then there are some who take that passion and apply it in the ring. To compete in Muay Thai, one must be passionate about it.

I personally asked some of our Kombat Arts Athletes who compete in Muay Thai, “What made you decide to compete”.  For the most part, they all wanted to reach that next level in their training.

Watching martial arts movies, boxing matches, and MMA fights is a lot different than having to defend yourself on the street, where the most unexpected violence can occur. Fortunately, practicing martial arts trains your reflexes and enhances your situational awareness, allowing you to respond quickly to aggressive situations.

No matter what type of self-defense you prepare yourself with, you’ll be more capable of handling yourself if you train in martial arts consistently.

 Drillers are Killers E-Book


My students would come in to train by themselves or with a friend, and they would need some direction on how to train.  I would observe them running around the gym, wasting time on what they should work on.  It was really hard for me to find the extra time to spend with all of my students and give them drills to work on. It is a scrapbook of drills that was meant for our students at the Kombat Arts with all sorts of drills from Boxing, Muay Thai and Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do.  There are also a lot of conditioning drills that you will thoroughly enjoy.  All of these drills have been used in our academy.
