Unfortunately, other than people who are already involved in the martial arts world, most prospective students are unaware of strengths and weaknesses of certain styles. Many lump martial arts into a catch-all sort of category, without taking into account the quality of the instructor or the art itself. For example, a person might decide that they are interested in training a striking art and choose a style of Karate or Kung Fu that has little to no contact without being aware that this will not prepare them for a real life violent encounter or a full contact fight in the ring. In such a situation, their instructor and fellow stdents will certainly not tell them that that is the case and so they will believe, often for many years and even up to the point of achieving their black belt, that their style is effective for real combat. This belief can be dangerous and perhaps event life-threatening should they ever need to use their art to defend themselves against assault.
Muay Thai, while a martial art, is also somewhat of a “life style.” Once a student fully understands the technical aspects of the art, they will begin sparring to learn how to execute their techniques in “live” situations. Many other styles of striking do not have live sparring, which means that many students of these other arts will not be well-prepared to deal with encounters on the street or in the cage. These students then never learn how to defend themselves against a real strike or how to execute one against a target that’s fighting back and moving. It is a simple matter of reaction time: if an object is not actually moving towards one so that it will actually hit them if they don’t move, then they will never actually learn to avoid it. Many martial arts neglect real sparring and instead simply have their students visualize an attack and make mid-air movements to counter it. While shadow boxing certainly has its place in Poughkeepsie Muay Thai, the Thai Kickboxer knows that to be proficient he must spar and risk being hit in order to learn how to defend himself.
Precision MMA has the best Muay Thai training in Poughkeepsie because the curriculum involves both sparring and pad work so that students can learn both the fundamentals of striking and also how to defend themselves and acquire the reaction time necessary to avoid strikes and strike back.
