Lately I’ve been adding a little Muay Thai as part of my work out routine, having a blast with it, and a friend shared this muay thai Youtube with me about trainers from Thailand who came to train UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre (GSP).
I had just watched a documentary about GSP, so I was really amused by the fact that these trainers had no idea who GSP was when they were asked to train him and actually declined at first, claiming it was “too far away and too cold”. I also cracked up that Canadian immigration knew they were there to train GSP in muay thai and let them through no questions asked.
Although the average person on the street may not necessarily know what muay thai is, muay thai is definitely now becoming more and more mainstream, especially among martial arts and MMA circles. It’s nice to see another Asian martial art spread across the North American landscape.
