I understand that training in Thailand is an experience and about paying respects to the traditions and origin of the sport but would 3 months in Thailand of hard training really make a difference in someone's skills?

Absolutely! Think about it this way -

In the states (or wherever you are from) you usually train once a day for around 2-3 hours. In Thailand, you train twice a day usually double that time (4-6 hours). So 3 months of training 6x a day back at home will equate to a maximum of 72 hours, where in Thailand it would be closer to at least double that!

Besides the quantity of training, you’ll most likely get better quality training as well. Not to mention you won’t have to worry about holding pads and if you choose a solid gym, you’ll have a pad holder working with you every session. 

And on top of that, when you’re in Thailand all you have to worry about is training. Back at home, you’ve got life, work, family, relationships, and a ton of other things to worry about.

So needless to say, 3 months in Thailand will definitely improve your skills.

Not many fighters take advantage of capitalizing off the entry and exit of the clinch. This video is one of the many by Lawrence Kenshin Striking Breakdowns, so make sure to like his page!

Fighting is a ton of fun and a very insightful personal experience. That being said, fighting isn’t for everyone. If you fall under any of these categories, don’t worry about fighting!
