If you are visiting Thailand for a vacation you can base yourself in a place which has a Muay Thai boxing ring and expert instructors, one such place is Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, which is a Koh Samui hotel resort.
Fitness & Conditioning
Those keen on taking on Muay Thai kickboxing as a sport are advised to read up on the practice to gain background knowledge before getting into the actual thing.
Fist Clenching and Hand Wraps
Among the first steps to master are fist clenching and the correct way to wrap hands. Correct fist clenching enables using them effectively, safely and increasing the power of the punch. Hand wrapping before putting on gloves is important to enable smooth and safe arm and fist movements.
The ultimate move in Muay Thai is sparring in perfection. For the beginner, it might take time to build the courage to spar and be sparred at, but this is the only way you can build your own technique and style and feel confident with it.
