Pack Protection

You won’t always get kicked in the crotch but the day you forget protection you can almost be certain you will be. It is like what Murphy’s Law says, “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.”  My friend Adam survived this accident, thankfully.  Continue reading “Pack Protection”

Accidents happen and if using two of the eight strikes in Muay Thai scares you or a gym, then maybe you shouldn’t practicing  Muay Thai to begin with.
