Why Is Muay Thai Important For MMA Fighters?
There are many disciplines a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter can focus on to make themselves a better overall fighter. Some offer things that others do not, and there are benefits to each. It would be impossible to master every fighting style, so great thought should go into which discipline you should focus on. We believe Muay Thai is one of those disciplines.
People seeking legitimate and effective Muay Thai training should be wary of watered down programs offered by some facilities. If it isn’t cost effective for a gym to hire a trainer dedicated to the art, than it obviously isn’t serious enough for them. While you may still get a good workout in, you won’t be benefiting from the full force that is Muay Thai.

Coach Tokarz has been involved in Martial Arts for nearly 30 years, training, researching, officiating, instructing and coaching.
