I trained in Muay Thai for about 3 or 4 years before moving to Phoenix... still trying to find a good gym here.

I love it. As for how it goes... just depends on the gym.
When I first started, I went with a friend who'd been training for years. Him and our Kru slowly walked me through the basics. When I graduated college and moved back to Detroit, our Kru introduced me to his protege who has a gym there. It was a completely different training style, and I was a wad of cookie dough for the first week.

Either way, like any activity, a good instructor will know how to push you... without breaking your esteem. Ask around to find a good gym. I know it sounds stupid, but go out for Thai food for lunch and ask the staff. It's typically a tight-knit community.

Google/Wikipedia are your friend. There's more info on the different martials arts then you'd ever want to know. Research a few, and see what gets your interest.
Also, most gyms will allow you to watch or sit in on a class for free. Gives you a chance to see if the sport (and the instructor) are to your liking, before paying any dues. Give that a shot.



What "stuff" do you need to learn to counter, and why do you need to attack?
I take pride in the fact that since I began training, I've never been in a fight outside the ring.
Don't learn to fight just to walk around and bully people.

thanks ill give it a shot.

well its not the fact that if i take any martial art, that i'll go walk around starting fights - i just need to learn how to back myself up if someone ever tries to bully me around or start something. i dont wanna seem like a pussy or anything...

Muay thai is good shit man. If you want to go this way though you need MMA training IMO. I've trained with some Muay thai people before.

You might want to educate yourself about the 'main differences' of each martial art before you join. Muay Thai is thai-kickboxing and is consisted completely of strikes: kicks/punches/elbows/etc. Whereas Jiu-Jitsu is very similar to wrestling and teaches mostly ground-fighting skills and how to submit someone in a fight rather than knock them out with strikes. I've never done Muay Thai (definitely thinking about taking some classes in the near future though), but I have been doing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for about three months now and I can definitely say that its been a great decision

I practiced competative Muay Thai for 5 yrs and it's not a countering martial art. It's pretty straight foward, but your shins will take a beating. As far as JKD goes, it's very difficult to find a good place. I've sparred with many people who claimed to have trained in JKD, but I've been disappointed because it was almost aways mostly kick boxing, and not always good kick boxing. I'm currently training in Wing Chun, it is very different from the movie Kung Fu bullshit and very different from my Muay Thai. This is a semi-countering martial art, it's philosophy is very interesting and is worth checking out if you can find a good place. Martial arts is a very personal decision and personal path.

fuck, there's no post where i can put +1's more than this!!!!!

it's very unfortunate but JKD has become a commercial tag that people train MMA under. I know of a place in OC where Nico lives that's okay, but it will still look very much like filipino arts/BJJ/Muay Thai. which i think is fine, it's a good combo to develop skill for JKD.

and +10000000 on WC man. it kicks ass man. Mantis is a bit close to WC especially the way we train for sensitivity, etc.

it is also very very very unfortunate that socal Kraav Maga places are very commercial (McDojo's).

I would recommend Mantis, but the problem for traditional chinese martial arts is it will take a few months or a whole year before you start seeing value in what you have trained. There's a lot of concentration on basics, and building different muscles of your body, plus building up your sensitivity/making your body relaxed, etc.
you will basically learn drills, and fight sequences with other people in your class, but you wont go full power before you pass 6 months then

the reason why i dont recommend Muay Thai alone is coz ur pretty much screwed when it comes to locks, grappling, take downs, etc. believe it or not, the easiest people to take down is Muay Thai fighters wen they lift a knee or a leg.
