Melissa Ray talks about being a female muay thai fighter in Thailand.
A lot of people don’t see combat sport as suitable for females. This couldn’t see this as further from the truth. Often we have found their technique to be superior to their male counterparts. Many of our sparring partners have been females that push us to a new level.
In this episode of Muaythai Journal, that was released just before Women’s Day former Muaythai Journal speaks to Melissa Ray from Muaythai on the brain on life as female Muaythai Fighter in Thailand. Melissa is a 4 time world champion and possibly more impressive has a PhD in Neuroscience (the study of the brain). Lets see what she has to say.
Melissa trains out of Eminent Air gym in Bangkok and trains alongside some of the best Nak Muay that are around, many of whom have already been featured in Muaythai Journal. She runs a very insightful blog with interesting articles using her knowledge from her studies such as: “The psychology of a rematch”. I highly recommend you check it out.
