THE REAL IMPACT OF COMBAT FITNESS
From an outsider's perspective, you'd probably think those who practice combat sports are crazy — all of the punching, kicking, grabbing and screaming at each other.
If you don't know much about combat sports, it can look scary, painful, and violent. Unfortunately, this skewed perception often prevents people from getting involved, and those who already practice have a hard time expressing why they love it so much.
It can be intimidating at first, but that adrenaline rush feels empowering. The routine of showing up every week to better yourself has an overwhelmingly positive impact on your life and those around you. Seeing physical, and even psychological improvements after a few short weeks can be a massive boost to your self-confidence. These are some of the reasons why we love combat sports.
At Hayabusa, innovation is part of our DNA, and our mission is to inspire athletes to use combat sports to become better, healthier, and stronger. We wanted to break that skewed perception of combat sports, so we began crafting a story that takes you through the journey of someone just getting started. Those of us who have taken that leap understand the benefits, and despite the bruises and scratches, we know it’s worth it.
By making this movie, we are celebrating all of those that took the leap, while, hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
In order to pull off this idea, we worked closely with a talented bunch of individuals who are not only masters of their craft, but who also love Muay Thai. Led by Ian Stoker-Long of Compel Pictures, we set forth with the skilled cast, crew, & athletes from F5 Muay Thai in L.A. to tell an amazing story that, we hope will inspire the world.
Watch, share, and together, let’s tell help the world understand the real impact combat fitness has on our lives.
