    Why increase the risks?

    People that do it will do it how long?

    Enjoy watching people who train to go in a ring and beat on each other...hmmmnnn

    A fighter is only in good shape during there prime......you can honestly tell me that they wont develop reprocussions say in about 20 years.

    Look-I am not knocking it as being non-effective.
    I just cant see what is the hype from a person with a common lifestyle.

    I couldn't re-take it up if I wanted to.

    I cant afford the injuiries and I have to support a family and lifestyle that is more important than to test my testosterone level and be a specticle for others to hype up theirs.

    What is the point in doing something of you cannot do it for a lifetime?
    Well...like I said, if it's not for you, then don't do it.

    Try to be a little more openminded. Not everybody is going to live their lives to make you happy.

Otherwise you'd never start a relationship without certainty that she'd stay with you until you died. My body would be completely fucked if I made it to 50 or so, but that looks so unlikely I don't mind.
      So do things while you still can. Get to the gym and train until you spit blood. Drink until you can't see. Enjoy life, its all its there for.

      I've got perhaps 30 years of professional life ahead of me. But it will conclude as time progresses and means fail. Do you imply that I shouldn't embark on a career because eventually it will end? You cannot live without risk, for it is not living when you do nothing to show life.

      I don't think you've only missed the point to muay thai, I think you've missed the point to life. Sad I suppose, but at least I can say I'm glad I'm not you.

      (the above point of view is from a uni physics student, so understandably varies from the standard slightly)
      Yes-live for the moment. I had.
      But there comes a point in ones life where something will give. Or something has to be approached differently.

      Drinking...........done that (Hell I was born and raised in New Orleans-as teens we would walk or drive pass cops with cans of beer-they were on a drug enforcement kick back then-left drinkers alone)
      Spitting blood at the gym.....done that
      Spitting and spilling blood in street....done that
      Broken bone.............done that
      Body aches........have

      There are other things in life that can be better appreciated than drinking, bleeding, and aching.

      Carpe Diem......but also be vigilant

      Now here is the kicker.....
      My posts, statements, and questioning are not entirely my personal opinion. some may be
      Sometimes I play devils advocate-some not
      When I post something, and a response comes back rational and makes sense, I say to myself-"blank" member has it going on. "Blank" member is not just a young punk or misguided internet misfit.

        Of course. But training in Muay Thai does not require any of the above, except aching. But that would be the good kind of aching...the kind after a good workout...which you could simply get from hitting any gym.

        So now what's wrong with training Muay Thai?

          Why is it that when someone desires to discuss something looking for the cons AS WELL AS the pros, responses are defensive or offensive, pending on the view, and that a person looking for such cons to seem like they had something against it or thought something wrong with it?

            Because you're on a Muay Thai forum questioning Muay Thai. These people love this stuff. It doesn't always matter that you are being nuetral, if someone came up to you and started talking pros and cons of your wife, I'm guessing you might get a bit deffencive and start lobbying the pros.

            So out of curiosty, do you train in any martial art anymore?

                You're a tough one, little ricky. Since we know you don't train in Muay Thai, what do you/have you trained?

                      So far, all of my posts have been sincere and good discussions, except those replying to you. You are right, I am not going to lie, you are a troll.

                        So, not a big fan of Muay Thai? When was the last time you sparred seriously with a Thai fighter?

                          It isnt that I am or am not a "big fan" of MT. MT is good. Im not a big fan of these fad followers not doing their homework when signing up in a Cardio-Kickboxing class at the "Y", whose instructor claims to have been taught, or teaches MT.

                          I am not a big fan, how many artists jump up waving their hands in the air on how their art is better, and start this vs. that discussions, leaving out many other virtues of martial arts.

                          I am not a big fan, of being haraased on a forum, when I try to do my best, not to harass or insult others.

                            You seem to be a fan of being a whiny little bitch about it though.

                            Your previous comments certainly seemed to have a negative tone toward MT. Now you seem to be taking issue with instructors who don't teach what they claim to teach.

                            Which of these two is your point here?

                              You have a serious attiude problem, IMHO.

                              Well, if you will READ, and understand, all of my points are not to degrade the "whole" art.



                              (Note people can say negative or the cons of TKD/TMA/CMA/TC/etc., but woe, if someone comes forth with cons of MMA/BJJ/MT....its a sin)
