Although the Martial Law should have ended earlier, it was unnecessarily extended to November 1944.

I picked Muay Thai because I’ve always wanted to learn kickboxing and it seemed like a more in depth form of kickboxing then just plain old kickboxing. Also because it is such an old form of kickboxing and one of the fastest growing form of mixed martial arts.
