Muay Thai Makes A Man Out Of You
I was never a big fan of Mulan, maybe because I never relinquished my loyalty to The Little Mermaid. But for some unexplained reason, I felt it completely necessary to try some sort of asian martial arts…while in Asia. Unfortunately, even sampling a class can be upwards of 100 kuai for one lesson. I was pretty sore about paying that amount, especially if most of it was going to be promotion for the martial arts gym. So I did what any blogger would do, tried to sound as important as possible. I explained to one of the most established boxing gyms in shanghai, that I was an american blogger looking to try and write about muay thai boxing. one hour later I was stretching at Hero Spirit Martial Arts Studio with puff….and free of charge. We worked one on one with a professional muay thai boxer for 90 minutes. I learned the stance, the kick, the different punches, and even how to do a roundhouse! Despite my lanky frame, and the fact that I was the only girl, I definitely held my own. In fact, I kind of loved it! It may have even been a better stress reliever than running. Muay thai martial arts and boxing gets a full positive report from me! Even though I liked it a lot, the entire time I was thinking about one person who would love it a whole lot more. Caroline Carter- next time you “just want to hit something” go ahead and enroll in some muay thai. It will do your soul some good!
