For me it was straight to punching and kicking on the first day. They paid a bit more attention to me since I was new, but other than that, there's little else.

I think most Muay Thai schools do three 3-min rounds or so of warm up. Jump rope, bouncing on a tire, shadow boxing...

Depends on the school. Like someone else said, some instructors/students are rough, others less so. Don't go training with the Diaz brothers.

We work pads a lot, so I haven't had more than a few bruises (from when people miss, which doesn't happen often) but I'm planning on moving up to the next level, where you spar with others in the ring. Yay!
