I wanted to do Muay Thai. but I am afraid of breaking my leg.
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlkUlA96g2Y[/media] I always wanted to know Muay Thai in order to kick like this guy.
I stopped after watching this.
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VR-b3cEx0M[/media] Goddamn, that hurts.
don't fight numerous matches with a stress fracture in your shin and it won't happen. This isn't something that happens because these guys practice muay thai.
As I said in the other thread, you are supposed to add a commentary anytime you put a clip. Stop it before you get banned.
BTW, there is another clip like that somewhere in the forums. My uneducated guess is that this man had a pre-existing condition, perhaps a fracture that didn't heal well.
You can break your leg by kicking alone, but the chances are slim. I put my money in that a pre-existing condition made this dude propense to a fracture.

You are also supposed to fill your MA style in your profile. :5bomb:

Kids has the correct.

This will be you if you keep posting vidclips without commentaries :)

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
You really have to consider how many hundreds (maybe even thousands) of thaiboxing matches have been posted on the internet and out of those, how many has this occured? So far I've seen two videos of this happening total. It's not really something anyone has to worry about happening since it pretty much never happens.
If something as unlikely as this is scaring you away from Muay Thai then you probably dont have the guts to step into the ring anyway.
Its like saying that you would like to play golf but your afraid to because some poor idiot got struck by lightening on the course.
What? There is commentary under each video.

How is that nearly the same thing? Lightning striking someone is a freak occurance outside your control.

If your scared of getting hurt, perhaps fighting sports just arent for you.
Actually I'm into self defense, in which case, hell yeah I'm afraid of getting hurt, which is why I'm into self defense in the first place. :|
