The Black Belt Life

Life is full of challenges. But it’s the challenges that make us stronger.

I’ve been taking Muy Thai Kick Boxing classes since last May. Stepping onto the mat at the beginning of the first class was a challenge. Every class is a challenge.

What kick boxing  and the final goal of black belt teaches is that the best way to deal with challenges is to face them head on.  Reaching black belt is not easy. It requires, when stepping on the mat, to give everything towards to the goal of black belt, even when it seems impossible.  It is the same with off the mat challenges. Whatever our goals are and the challenges that come with reaching that goal, we have to give it everything we’ve got, even when we feel that we cannot.

Keep reaching for that black belt, whatever it may be. We will all get there eventually.

How Muy Thai Kickboxing Has Changed My Life

There are a lot of gimmicks and magical pills that claim to help with weight loss.

The truth is that there is no gimmick and there no magical pill.  It comes down to hard work and commitment.

Last May, after spending my time fruitlessly at a local gym, I decided to try out Muy Thai Kick Boxing.

It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I will say that this is not the easiest work out, but it is totally worth it. It’s not the twenty minutes to a half hour treadmill or weights at the gym and then go home and have a big bowl of pasta. The classroom environment requires the students to do our best, even if we are not up doing our best.

I have gone down several sizes in clothing, I am more confident and g-d forbid I am ever attacked, I am able to defend myself.

I can’t speak for everyone that they will enjoy this kind of work out. But I do and I completely recommend Muy Thai Kick Boxing, if only just to try it out.
