A Final Word
The above descriptions are basic and intended only as a guideline. Each fighter will have his strength and weakness; some will have strong high kicks where others may be powerful in the clinch with good knees. In any Martial Art, there are qualities required to succeed. Dedication, Patience, and Respect are certainly among them. Dedication to apply the lessons given; patience to await the rewards of your perseverance; and respect for your fellow boxers, whose advice, however simple, is for your benefit. Training in Muay Thai is hard work and no one is going to force you into the ring, so no one can force you to train. The discipline must come from yourself to achieve a level of proficiency. Martial Arts is a life long study and whether starting at fifty or fifteen, there is something for everyone in Muay Thai or which ever style you chose.
