    1) you constantly walk around in a fighting stance

    2) you shadow box around your house, accidentally hitting inanimate objects and innocent bystanders indiscriminately

    3) when someone says Thailand you think of muay thai first, not ladyboys

    4) you wonder if you could out spar random people you see

    5) you love showing off the bruises you collected last training session

    You close your car door with a parry.

    You guard your center when cutting tomatoes.

    you put hands up as in a defensive position when talking by cellphone

    you try to gain double underhooks when hugging your female friends

    you try to gain double thai collar tie when kissing a woman

    you try to leg trip when hugging a girl

    you low your level when walking through a tree as trying to do a takedown

    you try to kick (soft!) any surface that is like a banana heavy bag

    when you sit in open spaces with open legs you try immediatelly to close your legs in order to "close guard"

    when having your woman on top of you, you try to reverse and get in her guard to avoid mount position

    when a girl hug you from behind and over your shoulders you do ippon seoi nage!

    You have callus on the top of your feet.

    You finish pillows with strikes.

    When you size-up every dude you meet in order to guesstimate what weight class they'd fall into.

    When walking towards a low hanging ceiling fan cord you slip and counter
    You greet your friends with light chopping leg kicks
    You cuddle your wife/gf with hooks in
    Your foam roller gets more action from you than your woman does

    When you walk around with a limb due to too much shin damage.
    When someone punches you but you don't react due to already perceiving them as no threat.
    When you ask your friends to punch you in the forehead for fun.
    When friends get too rough you dead leg them with a knee.
    Feeling safe in dangerous areas because you're stupidly overconfident from training.
    Not realising you have injuries.
    Kicking everything open and closed, car door, front door, fridge.
    When you go to a club and shadowboxdance and spar with your mates on the dance floor.

    When the side of your sofa has huge dents in it from practicing low kick
    When the post for the banister is skewed like the leaning tower of piza from clinching it.
    When you constantly spin in little circles doing shadow boxing low kicks

    Oh and when you bribe your fiance with shoes so that she'll learn to clinch with you

    Hahaha. This. Except I don't have any female friends. So hookers.

    Also I noticed myself doing a tight single collar tie that one time I was having sex.

    You knuckle up for your driver license picture.

    You try to use Namman Muay on your girlfriend/wife during an erotic massage.

    1. Actually, I get friends to punch my stomach or push hard against me after I "root" Yi Quan style (also deploy that in mosh pits/rock gigs)

    2. I use a leg kick/oblique kick, especially if we're sat down, BAM quick one under the table

    3. Polar opposite me, i'm paranoid and on guard everywhere I go, even shopping I keep circling away from the walls and keeping my head on a swivel.

    The double underhook hug thing, defo :D

    Word to the wise, don't try to double collar tie a girl when she's kissing you, sends out a bad vibe.
