Style: Muay Thai
The thing is, I do MT three times a weak, and though it's a good workout, there's way too many people and not enough emphasis on performing techniques orrectly. Everything from stance to elbows and so on and so forth
I'm looking for any good source material, preferably taking on the whole spectre of MT, stance, punches etc, so I can improve my technique. This being a book, youtube-lessons etc doesn't really matter.
Considering the amount of bullshit out there that looks alright in the eyes of the noob, I felt it safer to go through bullshido

Sounds more like a case for switching gyms, honestly. It seems like you're not really getting the attention you need at this place.
You really can't learn something like muay thai if it's not in person. That goes for pretty much any style, really. You need somebody there to tell you when you're screwing something up, even when you think you're fine. I taped myself sparring a few weeks ago, and I drop my hands sometimes when I kick, but I would have sworn to you that my hand stays right where it should.
Basically, the internet can't really help you.

1. Pay for private lessons.
2. Keep practicing.
3. Stop being a whiny bitch.

Thanks for the reply
The problem is, in my country there's not really a great deal of clubs to choose from, unless you're doing TMA... Also the guy who runs the place has definitly proven himself in the ring, but he's a way better fighter than a teacher...
It seems he's not used to hanging around (relatively) complete beginners
The student/trainer ratio is approx 20/1. and concidering the money I pay I should def. expect more attention, but for the time being I wanna try to hang on a little bit longer, and find some good source that help me understand the techniques and combos a little better..
If I after a few more months feel I'm not going anywhere I'll just join a boxing-club and get deadly hands
1. Can't afford private lessons
2. I will
3. I enjoy being a whiny bitch

I mean, offer some trade with somebody in your area.

Write down a few specific question you have, go up to the instructor and and ask them. Be polite (you're taking some of his time), be affirmative (you want answers, clarification).
See where that gets you.

Thanks to all for the replies.
I'd still appreciate a link or whatever though, if there's a certain fellow selling products or having free lessons. I'm laying down the blood, sweat and tears at the gym, so it's basicly adding some mirror-time at home..
Unless of course you for some reason think it's counter-productive. In that case I'll just go without.
Regardless, thanks for taking the time to help me out!
