Meme War - Muay Thai Memes We Can All Enjoy

Recommended Posts

So a friend who's the head coach at Level Up Boxing in Maryland was recently challenged about how muay Thai memes in general fall behind bjj memes in humor as well as amount. Theres a few of us who make them but the amount is definitely less than the bjj community. Call this a call to arms if you will. Lets show them we have a good sense of humor too. Heres a couple Ive done, with one being shared by multiple muay Thai fan accounts. Add your instagram handle and if it makes me or a bunch of others laugh, Ill gladly repost and tag you in it. Btw my ig is poidog1 and most of my memes have the @pdmt on them.

Don't know how to edit the pics to put the funny text underneath...  this done on a phone app or from the computer?

Well. Day 1 of your face when your trainer shows you how to clinch and you got no idea what you doing, and you're about to be rag-dolled again.

Actually, come to think of it, anybody else notice how so many BJJ people have technical or computer day jobs? Bet that's why they have more memes. 

Plus there's more of them than ppl who go to Thai gyms. Dunno about America, but it feels like there are Gracie Bara gyms all over the place nowadays.

I think its a numbers thing, there seems to be BJJ gyms all over the place so its super accessible. Also when I talk to casual fight fans about Muay Thai I usually get the response "ya its so brutal all the elbows and leg kicks and blood wow" so not surprised some shy away from it. Another common response:

Pet Peeve, maybe call it UFC inflation. Everything that appears in the UFC is defacto "World Class". Ummm, nope. The very thin frame of reference has created a pretty distorted vision of even what "Muay Thai" is, let alone what elite level Muay Thai would look like. Ugh. No, the "American" version, or the Western version, isn't really close to where the art can go, and has gone.

    • My gym in Japan teaches this 'straight up' kind of kick and I struggle with it through flexibility of body (and mind I guess).  They also encourage a 'snap' of the knee at the end in addition to the hip rotation.  Is that how the Thais are creating the final acceleration?   Thanks for the compilations and comparisons!
    • Hi, I am organizing Muay Thai fights in Kenya to build the sport here and give fighters more opportunities. Would I need to be affiliated with an international Muay Thai body to sanction all the fights? Which would be the best Muay Thai organisation to register with? I would appreciate any advice on this. Thank you  
    • Wow, what an amazing write-up- thanks. That should prove really useful. Tbh, both Lanna and Santai both sound like they have great aspects to them. I find I can usually get something useful from pretty much any gym, trainer or sparring partner, so I don't know whether it's best to stay at one gym for a longer time, or a week at a couple of good ones... How's training in Isaan? Would love to hear about that.

    • It is recommended that you should rest 1 month approximately, after having an eye surgery. I know that you are very very keen about your training. That's the best spirit in you. But at this time I recommend you to rest at least 1 month and if you fear that you may not forget Boxing, I recommend you 2 read books and blogs about Boxing. That'll help you keep in touch with Boxing.
    • Sparring was each day, it's part of the training, also each day you go the bagwork and the pads, so i don't know where you got that idea from.  You never go  without hiting the pads or having spar in the Thailand, unless you're in a really bad comercial gym, but the spar there is way different than in other countries, you develop technique there and go sparr without power, by either legs, hands or clinch, depending on the day . As for technique, they always correct you and try to teach it the correct way, they made a good amount of adjustments in my kicking techniques, sweeps and clinch while i was there, i didn't go into such small details because it would take a whole book to write about how much small things they see and try to work on that. Also i don't think you fully read what i wrote in the blogs, because i don't really remember now all the things i wrote, it was a long time ago, but i went on and re-read the first day i wrote, and it already said i did a lot of pads and clinch , knees and elbows , so i don't know where you got the idea that i didn't do pad work. 
    • Hey mate sorry for bumping old thread, im thinking bout going to Manop for 3 months in nov-dec-jan. Everything you described in your posts are what i'm looking for, but there was some things bothering me.   1) From what I read you barely got to spar? Sparring is a huge deal and important for me.. Why didn't you get to spar in the beginning? 2) You seem to spent ALOT of time hitting the bag, why didnt you get more pad-time in the beginning of your training? I really don't know your level and it was hard to tell from the fight 3) (Probably most important) How are they on instructions? Do they correct your technique? how much do they emphesise on that? Do they teach you proper form, sweeps, techniques, tricks, etc? cause from your posts it seemed like you were on your own pretty much the entire stay     Cheers!
    • I'll recommend Elite Sports, Yokkao and Fairtex.
