We’re living in some crazy times right now. What sucks the most in my opinion is having your passions stolen from you. There are so many things that you can't do right now, particularly if you're an athlete.
Fortunately for us nak muays, this does not have to be the case. Training right now is a very difficult thing to do. However, you can still improve your skills and be an even better nak muay than ever!

You can work on improving your flexibility so that you can move more smoothly when doing Muay Thai. You can work on bodyweight exercises to improve your pound-for-pound strength. You can watch tape of your favorite fighters so you can improve your understanding of Muay Thai. There are a lot of things you can do right now to keep growing as a nak muay and as a person.
The key right now is to make sure that you do those things that you know you need to do and that you keep doing those things! Stay consistent and you will be a better nak muay than ever when the world gets back to normal.
