Muay Thai fans are some of the most passionate people in the world when it comes to their favorite combat sport. We love Muay Thai and we are proud of our love for it.
If you are or someone close to you is a hardcore Muay Thai enthusiast, then there are some common signs that you would recognize instantly. Some of these traits may even border on being outright obsessive and wacky to outsiders of Muay Thai.
Here are the top 5 signs that you are a hardcore Muay Thai enthusiast:
Too Much Muay Thai Apparel
You like to wear your love for Muay Thai on your sleeves -quite literally- so you also own many Muay Thai t-shirts. Even when you are not training, you would wear a Muay Thai tee anywhere and any occasion.
To you, Muay Thai shorts are more than just workout apparel. They are an expression of who you are and your style. You own more than a few pairs of Muay Thai shorts but there is always room in your wardrobe for more.
Dreams of Thailand
You are always talking about traveling and training Muay Thai in Thailand. If you have trained in the “Motherland” before, you are always looking forward to getting back.
If you have never been to Thailand, it is a top priority on your bucket list. You are always looking for airfare deals to Thailand and researching on where to train and visit. It’s your dream to visit Rajadamnern stadium and meet your favorite Muay Thai fighter in person.
Muay Thai Social Media
If you are on social media, you follow many Muay Thai fighters and brand accounts. You like to scroll through your feed to see how fighters like Saenchai or Liam Harrison and other people are training. Or you are looking at the latest gear and apparel by fight brands like Yokkao and drooling over them.
You are either always training, talking about training or thinking about training. Sometimes you also watch other people’s training videos. You may even set goals and plans on training.
On days when you can’t train due to injuries or school or work, you don’t feel like yourself. Training days are your happiest and you leave the gym feeling your best every single time. No training, no life.
Shadow Boxing Addict
You are always shadow boxing and it doesn’t matter where you are. You shadow box in the showers, when you are waiting for the elevator, while you are walking to your car, and even when you are reading this article.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how passionate of a Muay Thai fan would you consider yourself?
