Hello. I used to be pretty heavily involved in martial arts. I've been exposed to many different kinds, including Tae Kwon Do, Wing-Chun, Jiu-Jutsu, Filipino Arnis (similar to Escrima and Kali), Penjak Silat, etc.
Of all the different styles I've been exposed to, Muay Thai was one of my favorites. I would LOVE to learn more about it. I love it because it's such an effective method of self-defense, is great for the body, and is a real no-nonsense type of art (no fancy stuff).
The only thing is... I've had almost no luck at all finding a school that offers real Muay Thai training. I live in Oklahoma City, OK. There are a couple of schools in Tulsa, but that's almost 2 hours away - I couldn't drive that far. But I've found no schools listed on the Internet that specifically list themselves as Muay Thai schools. And I've posted this question on two other boards, but have gotten ZERO responses. In fact, one of them is based in England and one I think is based in Thailand (which if I had the money I'd love to fly down there and train), so they probably have never even HEARD of Oklahoma LOL.
But seriously, if anyone can give me ANY info on this, no matter how small, then I would appreciate it greatly. Thanks.
Hmmm... actually I was associated with a MMA school. That's how I got exposed to Muay Thai in the first place But those are both great ideas. I'll definitely give 'em both some SERIOUS thought. Thanks.
If anyone else has any ideas, or info, I'm all ears!
Midwest city, its called the Academy of Martial arts. Check out this web page www.sadiqkalisilat.com. If the number is not on the page pm and I will send it to you. I would tell you to definitly try it out, I think you you will love it.
I decided to go with Conan's Kickboxing Academy, in Norman, OK, for training. I guess I am now back into it, and training Muay Thai Of course, I am outta shape, so I gotta get conditioned again But it was great, and I think it's gonna be great for me!
