The sport is one of the best ways to learn self defense techniques and improve general fitness. If you are newbie you must follow the below mentioned tips to get best results:

One of the most common mistakes that the amateurs who start training in any sport make is that they get overwhelmed and try to push themselves too hard and expect quick results. Muay Thai is a kind of sport in which the basic moves matter a lot and practising the simple moves to attain perfection is pertinent. Pushing too hard from the start will only lead to unwanted injuries and therefore it is important to take it easy.

• Training can be painful initially

Remember that good things never come easy. When you begin training you may experience great pain as you stretch your entire body and strengthen the core muscles. During the course of the training you may even experience some minor injuries, especially if you are not used to doing exercise.

If you believe that the training session will include only the usual things like jogging a mile, practise punches on the punching bag, moving up and down the stairs, then you must think twice. Although pain, bruises and injuries are common it is important to be determined as your body will soon get used to the sessions within a couple of weeks and the pain will subside too.

• Enjoy what you do

This is one of the most important tips to remember while starting training in any martial arts sport. If you feel that the training is too harsh or dislike attending the sessions then you may not get anywhere close to learning the skills or even improve your body. On the other hand if you keep yourself motivated and enjoy doing the exercises and going through the drills you would attain unimaginable results and become a pro Muay Thai fighter.

• Blindly follow what your instructor says

As a novice it is your prime duty to obey and respect your trainer. The trainer is a master in the sport and it is therefore important that you strictly follow the trainer's instructions and do whatever he/she tells you to do. The trainers know your body better than you and they will have a specific routine for you to suit your body.
