Well, thanks to the suggestion of podcast fan Antonio, Paul and I go “Muay Thai Myth Busters” edition where we chat about and debunk a number of the common myths that many people believe to be true, such as:

Believe it or not, this is NOT the way to condition your shins.

  1. Sex before competition impedes testosterone, aggression, and primal acuity in performance
  2. Elevation masks improve your cardio and make it so that you are training at elevation.
  3. New training methods that take your game to the next level
  4. Headgear prevents brain damage
  5. Shin conditioning with pipes, bottles, and kicking trees to “deaden” the nerves.
  6. Fighters love violence and are mean people.
  7. Muay Thai is a traditional martial art rooted in passion and respect where the wai kru music plays everyday during training and you have to bow to every object around you
  8. Size doesn’t matter – Sorry guys, and girls. . . it does
  9. You must be a champion fighter to have any sort of legitimacy as a trainer
