Muay Thai Kick Boxing and Boxing

Daniel Carr trains the Muay Thai round kick. Muay Thai fighters reign supreme as the best standup fighters in the world. Fighters from Asia, America, and Europe have all tried to win in Thailand, most of them knocked out very quickly, the smarter ones leaving with a profound respect for the Thai's and their art.

Now, Muay Thai is the number one choice with professional full contact fighters for standup skills, Brazilian Jiu Jistu the first choice for groundfighting. It differs from the newer, commercial Kick Boxing styles taught in it's use of shin kicks, knees, elbows, full power pad striking, and grappling.

Theravadan Buddhist Meditation compliments Muay Thai to produce optimal results in both studies. Buddhist Meditation and Philosophy work well with all types of martial arts, not just Muay Thai.

Traditional Muay Thai has strong ties to Buddhist Meditation and Philosophy, practices which enrich it far beyond its martial prowess. We offer this approach to interested students so that they can see the crossover between the Chinese Martial Arts and Muay Thai with respect to the relationship between body mechanics in striking, bone strengthening, and Chi/central nervous system electricity.

Both the Chinese Martial Arts and Muay Thai have sophisticated systems for generating "Chi" or central nervous system electricity in the body and both use this power for martial application. Although the methodologies are somewhat different, training both systems has a synergistic effect on one's practice.
