We all know Muay Thai is a highly effective martial art both in kickboxing in MMA, but it is also a very highly effective martial art in self-defense too I’d reckon and this includes against much larger opponents.
In this video from bodybuilding-centered YouTube channel from Germany, hardgainer crew, we see an example of the skill and technique of Muay Thai not only overcoming but completely dominating some much larger opponents as a team of Thai boxers take on a team of massive bodybuilders.
You would think that perhaps the size and strength of the bodybuilders in this video could potentially give the Thai boxers some problems, but that’s not the case at all.
The skill and technique disparity is simply way too much and the bodybuilders only really land a couple of glancing blows, none of which seem to phase the Muay Thai guys. The defensive skills of the Thai fighters are just as impressive as their offensive skills and they really put on a striking clinic which you can see in the below video.
As previously mentioned, Muay Thai is one of the most effective martial arts not only for MMA but for self-defense too I’d reckon. This is because much like BJJ and MMA and other more modern martial arts, you learn how to defeat a fully resisting opponent who is trying to defeat you as well, using the proper technique.
Had this been a team of more traditional stylists like Kung Fu, Taekwondo or even Karate, for instance, the massive size and strength of these bodybuilders might give them a hard time and very well could have gotten the better of them.
That’s not how this one goes down, however, so check out the above video to see what happens when a team of Thai boxers takes on a team of massive bodybuilders.
