New Middle Aged Muay Thai Website

I’ve just put together a new website called Middle Aged Muay Thai. It is still a bit empty but I hope to add interesting content over the coming weeks and months – that’s the plan anyway. I’m still new to this fighting art but this should mean that I’ll have lots of new things to discover and share. I’m fortunate enough to live in Thailand so I couldn’t be better situated to learn about Muay Thai.

My Plan to Fight Muay Thai

It is my plan to train hard over the next few months so that I’ll be ready to step into a ring this year. The idea of an actual fight scares the living daylights out of me, but it is something that I really want to do. I want to set difficult challenges for myself; I wasted too much of my life taking the easy options. I’m hoping that my mixed feelings of fear and excitement are a sign that this is a meaningful goal. I’m going to be training full time for a couple of months before the fight, and the fear of being beaten to a pulp should be great motivation for me.

Anyway you can follow my progress on this new website Middle Aged Muay Thai. I know that a lot of people aren’t so interested in martial arts, but I would like to think that my adventure will inspire others to challenge themselves.

Business will carry on here at as usual

  1. Paul I checked out your website and it is a bit bare but the joy of a new site is building it into what you want. A few months from now and I’m sure it’ll look the part. Anyhow, it’s the writing that counts.

    As you’re planning to fight in the ring I’ve come up with a few names you might want to stitch onto your fight gown.

    The Sober Cobra
    Dead Dunk (That’s the Thai pronunciation of drunk)
    ABH Garrigan
    Paul ‘The Brawl’ Garrigan
    Paul ‘Soi Dog’ Garrigan

    Hope you like them.

  2. Paul, I’m excited about this new venture of yours. When you lost weight the mindful way, I followed along.

    Ok, I didn’t start until after the holidays but it was your push that eventually got me to pay attention to my health (I’ve never eaten so many greens in my life!)

    And I’m not saying that I’ll take up Muay Thai absolutely but I am looking into it. Getting mindfulness into my lifestyle comes first though.

    1. Hi Catherine, I’ve been planning this for a couple of years now so it is great to see it coming together at last. I’m excited but worried about my ability to pull it off; I’ll give it my best shot. Mindfulness is going to be important for my journey into Muay Thai; although I doubt that the Buddha intended people to use this technique as a means to get better at hitting other people 🙂

  3. Paul, this is something I’m going to keep an eye on. I’ve been looking into getting back into a work out routine and I used to do a lot of work with a heavy bag and have been wondering if I might be adaptable to some sort of muay Thai training that won’t kill me.

    1. Thanks Tim, it is a great workout. If you do private lessons then you can go at your own pace. I think most of the gyms are quite laid back and will let you do your own thing if you want – just keep sending them the cheques 🙂
