    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Any guidelines for training time to first ammy fight?

    Just started muay Thai. Have a TKD competition background but its been 10 years. Need at least 3-4 months to drop lbs and build cardio. Wondering if it is a realistic goal to want to be 1-0 before I move away for clinical internship in about a year. Thanks for the advice!

    Yeah. You will be able to do a fight in three months. Just train hard.

    I think we have some sort of 'barbarian fight club' ammy event in July. I'll keep my eye on that prize. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Is this a sanctioned fight or something you sign up for yourself? If it's the former, maybe your coach, or promoter, or whoever is setting up the fight can get you an opponent around your skill level and you can walk away with your 1-0 a little bit easier :) I think you should challenge yourself though.

    I'm not sure what the event is like but I'll post some info about it when I have the details. My biggest concern now is getting down from heavyweight to something more comfortable.

    Is it full padding for amateur fights where you live?

    I definitely wouldn't rush entering a fight at your weight in Australia, heavyweight fights can be really brutal with 10 ounce gloves and no headgear/shin pads.

    My recollection is that its 10oz gloves and shin pads. If there's no headgear I probably wont be into it. I'm not really looking to be the next ultimate fighter. Just want to improve and have a goal to work toward.

    Never seen headgear in thai here. Best you will get is no elbows. Which still may be some elbows if you can get away with it.
