Ive been regaining the desire to go back to muay thai training lately. Especially now that its becoming winter here since i have hyperhydrosis and sweat like crazy at the drop of a hat. Wish i had the money for it. I guess its just another reason to add to the list to get another job. Any of you peeps do any fighting training or working out? I didnt do it for that long so i still am a beginner. But it was great when i was doing it. Think it was about a year and a half ago since i last went.
Why don’t you go? Is it that expensive?
I wrestled in high school
Its not insanely expensive but i cant even afford to eat regularly at the moment without borrowing money for food every fortnight. With rent and bills and whatnot, being on centrelink payments.
Ok, I understand. That sucks man. Hopefully you’ll get some money soon.
When I was poor I was on fasting diet and I only ate three meals a day. Try to get some protein. Eggs are cheap. Try to buy some cheap steaks in bulk if you can. I bought a lot of cheap meat that I put in the freezer.
I would train Muay Thai too but I get anxiety when sparring.
You should set up a GoFundMe schizophrenic requires Muay Thai classes
It would benefit your mental health
@FreeLunch good idea but i cant help but giggle at that title of the gofundme. Some people would be like “im not helping a schizophrenic be more dangerous” lol.
Heck yeah, man. I do Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai, Filipino Kali, and a few others. My uncle is a tenth degree black belt in many of these, and he teaches a class in my town. I’m still just a yellow belt, but thats because I’m off and on with the class. I plan on going again when my friend can. We’ll be training partners. Luckily for family members, its free to be in the class.
Your lucky man you should tak advantage of that
@John_Raven nice! Thats a decent amount of arts! Lucky you are family then haha.
Yeah, I mean its only like 10 bucks a class for everyone else, but its still nice to have it for free. He actually learned under one of Bruce Lee’s original students for Jeet Kune Do and a few others.
I am looking into a new hobby. I’ve looked into all sorts of things - boxing, dancing, walking, climbing.
Also martial arts. Tried aikido. But I was supposed to kneel/prostrate before a photo of a teacher. And will not. I do not want to join, but refuse to do their rituals, that is awkward. I saw a sword-fighting course too, with a lot of attention to traditional values and discipline and old traditions of my country.
Sword fighting? How cool. What country is that if you dont mind me asking? Just to get a picture in my head of the kinds of swords and values and stuff.
Muay Thai is the best idea so far, and it would actually work in a real fight if one should happen to arise. A lot of the other martial arts are flashy and cool looking, but MMA has kind of made them obsolete. Plus, kicking those heavy bags gives you a great cardio workout.
Yes it seemed real cool. I’m Dutch.
Not sure yet. I always like boys-things. But I want to get to know more female friends. Not sure how many women are in the nerdy medieval sword-fighting club. For some reason I like different things.
Nice. My ancestors on my mothers side came from latvia in the baltic region. So kind of close to the dutch people in a way haha. Not sure if european people think other european nationalities are similar to them though. But in australia where i live theyre all basically just all lumped into the ‘white’ category. But i feel that there is a lot of diverse culture throughout europe at different ends.
Im sure there are at least some chicks that do it. Unless its one of those toxic environments where the guys feel threatened by possibly losing to a lass.
Ah nice! I think most Europeans feel there is a very diverse culture in different countries here. Most here wouldn’t lump them together, but rather feel they have a distinct national identity. Even for example Dutch/Belgian/German people, which are the closest to each other, have a somewhat different culture and social rules. The difference with for example Southern or Eastern Europe is even more pronounced. @jonathan2, what do you think?
I hope not. That will quickly chase me away.
