2) Great way to destress
If you are like most people, you probably have a very busy schedule and things can get stressful from time to time. Martial arts classes are a great way to lower your stress levels. The drills you perform will make you break a sweat and that sends a signal to your brain to release a hormone called dopamine. It creates a pleasurable sensation in your brain, putting you in a better mood.
Since Muay Thai is a striking-based martial art, you also get to punch, kick, elbow and knee things during classes. This helps to release pent up anger and frustration. By the time each class is over, you’ll feel relaxed and happy.
