How to Score a Muay Thai Fight by Tony Meyers (MTPMagazine)
For a really interesting, intelligent, and correct article on understanding how a Muay Thai fight is scored by judges and referee check out this months issue of Muay Thai Phuket Magazine at http://mtpmagazine.com.
The feature article by certified Muay Thai referee Tony Meyers gives a great description on how a Muay Thai / Thai boxing fight is judged. Meyers covers all the points from knees and kicks worth more than punches, to aggression, effectiveness, throws, and the importance of not showing fear or being hurt, and of course the importance of the final three round of the Muay Thai fight.
Also in this month’s issue of MTP Magazine is an article on Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp’s Claire Haigh who recently won a 2nd round submission victory in an MMA fight on Gold Coast, Australia over 8-time Muay Thai Champion Angie Parr.
This issue also has the advert of the legend Royce Gracie making his only stop in Thailand @ Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp giving a seminar for 1500 baht on Tuesday, November 11, 2009 @ 10:00 a.m. in the MMA center.
