Muay Thai Fighter Survey

By Mike LNg

Survey Says 'Ouch'

Stephen Strotmeyer, head instructor at Pittsburgh Muay Thai is conducting a research study about injuries from participation in sanctioned Muay Thai matches. The results are apparently going to be used towards a doctoral dissertation with Dr.Thomas Songer.The survey is 100% anonymous so it does not require anyone to disclose their name.

Stephen Strotmeyer has also been involved in efforts with the Association of Boxing Commissions to unify rules in United States Muay Thai.

The data will be presumably published at later date by the University of Pittsburgh and will have a compilation of information in regards to injuries incurred during fights.

This looks very interesting and overall a good thing to do to capture this sort of information. Interested in participating?  Click here to begin.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact Stephen Strotmeyer, 121 University Place, University Center for Social & Urban Research, 412-624-3857 or email sjsst43@pitt.edu or Thomas Songer, PhDtjs+@pitt.edu . If you have any concerns about your rights in this study, please contact the Human Subjects Protection Advocate at 1-888-212-2668.

One Response to “Muay Thai Fighter Survey”

  1. Hello I’m also doing a survey on Muay Thai, I’m currently doing year 12, I have been asked to do a survey why do people train in Muay Thai Kickboxing. I have wondered why people have started training or practice in a lot of things, I chose the question “Why do people train in Muay Thai Kickboxing?”, so I have came here and asked you guys why did you start Muay Thai Kickboxing?. The survey that I made up is 100% confidential.

    if you are too busy to complete the survey can you answer just a couple of these questions,
    Who introduced you to Muay Thai kickboxing (Friend, instrutor, trying to find a fighting style that suited you?)?
    What made you keep going back (to train in Muay Thai)?
    What age do you think is a good age to start training in Muay Thai?

    Thank you for your time and effort for reading this and I hope you have a good day.
    Yours Sincerly
    Hayden.

    P.S. I am reading everyones surveys and yours definitely counts.
