    yeah that is true.... I mean after you train in muay thai, the instructor encourage you to fight, to be in the ring.... to build up your confidence... after a fight, you can feel the different in you...

    There are of course many ways to train your heart,Thai people and therefore Muay Thai in Thailand is steeped in Teravada Budhismn,the Thai boxers understand this and fight from a heart of compasion,this is something we in the west could learn a great deal from imho.

    That is awesome docthai, I would agree that the toughest opponent is myself, and if I can conquer that, the outer results will be favorable no matter the outcome, win or lose.

    Muay Thai is a test ... that is the best way to look at it. ;-)



    The is a true motivation behind Muay Thai, many are in it to show off, to win, to prove something but very few know it is to build one's Heart- to train your Heart to relax and to see how deep/ tough your own Heart is. From this perspective, your trainer, your fellow sparring partners and your fight opponent is just a Tool to train your own Heart.

    I saw the two videos. I am very angry at your testers. You should have sued them. Either that, or you should hire a hit man.

    Especially that second round, that guy kept kicking you agressively when you were tired and he was not tired because he wasn't moving very much.

    He took advantage of his higher skill and the situation to enjoy his sadism.

    I saw him move in and prevent your attacks with his weight and big bones to kick and deliberately injure you.

    He out weighed you at least 50 pounds. His bones were twice as big as yours.

    I say he is a son-of-a-B#*#!!@
    Sifu Terry Gibson R.I.P. A superb instructor and gentleman, loved and respected by all who knew him.

    This is Master Chai's Instructor Test, not figure skating. One of the mantras of the test is to overwhelm the candidate physically so it becomes a matter of heart and soul. Everyone who steps up to do this test knows that, its not supposed to be "fair", its supposed to be hell.

    I have seen other people test with holders who were just as aggressive if not more so than the late Mr Gibson, they are just doing their job. And pass or fail, everyone walks off the mat as friends, and brothers.

    If that isn't your thing, or you don't understand it, then OK. But don't throw offensive insults around about a man you know nothing about, and one who I'm sure Mr Mousel respected greatly.

    Since the last post in that thread was almost one year ago, I figured no one would ever see my post, but I feel strongly about it, so I wanted to speak up.

    I reject the old sadist logic of beating somebody up, injuring them to test their heart. It is not necessary to injure someone to test their heart. A strong and worthy heart is seen in the regular and continual and sacrificial training which improves skill.

    And real heart can be seen in those rare moments of real combat, in an emergency situation where you must risk injury to protect yourself and others from harm.


    Martial Arts training is to teach us how to prevent injury! And anyone of larger weight, bone size and skill who beats on somebody is just perverse.

    An injury decreases your skill in martial arts by preventing you from training. So you actually lose skill and especially endurance while you are recooperating. And while recooperating, you are prevented from improving your skill and moving up in rank too.

We both startled giggling like second-graders, until Chris said "We better stop or he'll kill us both."
    I was there as well but missed the ball-shot Way to cover it up

    thanks for sharing

    Tim,
    One of my students saw your test online and was impressed with, and told me about it to view via e-mail link and I did not know it was you he was speaking of, but however, I viewed and quickly realized it was you and I just wanted to thank you for being so humble to share your test with us all.
    It was a good test in terms of heart and what an instructor has to go through in Adjarn Chai's cirriculum !
    This says a lot about you in my book and folks should learn from your humbleness and assertiveness.
    Hope you and yours are doing well.
    Thanks again,

    I saw Ajarn Chai test two people in New Jersey and the test was just as brutal as this one. I think it means something to pass a test of this nature. You feel like you really earned your stripes. My JJJ Black Belt exam was about 6 hours long and I was near dead to the point of an outer body experience but besides Army Life I would not trade that experience for anything. It's like once in a lifetime; then you carry your badge of Honor for the rest of your life.

    It took a lot of Heart and Courage to retake that test 6 months later!!

    Ryan, Sorry man, I just assumed that since the thread was about thai instructership, that your fight experience was in thai kickboxing.
    That being the ring experience would have aided you in giving you credability as a thai instructor. I guess I just misunderstood.
    It's all good. Fighting is fighting, plain and simple.

    In regards to all your Dog Brothers questions, . . . YES

    Part of the idea of DBMA is that we don't keep track.

    The MAGIC WORDS: "No judges, no referees, no trophies. One rule only: Be friends at the end of the day. This means our goal is that no one spends the night in the hospital. Our goal is that everyone leaves with the IQ with which they came. No suing no one for no reason for nothing no how no way!
    Real Contact Stickfighting is Dangerous and only you are responsible for you. Protect yourself at all times. All copyright belongs to Dog Brothers Inc. CA law applies."

    I would definitely check out some of the new DVD'S DBMA has put out, extremly good stuff. Check em out, see if you can pick out which ones I am in.
