Example text

Perhaps the most famous story, though, dates back to a sixteenth­century manuscript.  To this day, an annual fight called the King's Tournament is held in his memory.  Think of the King's Tournament as the Super Bowl of fighting. ) You bow to the crowd and your trainer.  You pause and say a prayer.  At last, you're ready to fight.  By modern kickboxing standards, Muay Thai's tactics and tricks are brutal. For example, elbow strikes, which can be deadly, are allowed during a Muay Thai match, which is one reason why Muay Thai is rarely practiced outside Thailand.

The two main causes of kickboxing injuries are incompetent training and defective equipment.  These are all signs that you're choosing a good gym.  Ask yourself the following questions: • What are the instructors like? • How many classes do they teach? • What kinds of classes do they teach? • How many instructors are there? • What are their qualifications? Even if you're interested only in the cardio classes, make sure the instructors have some kind of kickboxing experience or, at the very least, some sort of certification.

Why?  Whatever the reason, the consensus among women is that kickboxing makes them feel stronger, better, and more courageous than they ever dreamed.  You shouldn't let fear stop you from doing anything that you really want to do.  But don't be afraid to see the world.  Don't forget that you're strong; kickboxing can put you in touch with your strength.  After a while, fighting with a man will be no big deal.  That's when you'll feel good about yourself, knowing that you can do anything you put your mind to.
