People throughout Australia train in Muay Thai for different reasons including keeping fit and healthy, or training upto to professional level and attempting to become a professional fighter. These two reasons are the main reasons for training in Muay Thai throughout Australia, and together they are something quite different altogether, as such, you should ensure that you have identified your own personal outcome for training and then with the help of the WBC or by visiting gyms in the local area, find the gym that is offering a training program best suited to your goal.
