    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Which Muay Thai school would you recommend from these two...

    http://www.muaythaiacademy.net/main.htm
    And...
    http://www.rexmuaythai.com

    They both seem good and it looks like the first place has better equipment and real experienced instructors, but the thing about going whenever you want with no scheduled classes in the 2nd place sounds real good. Which would you recommend?

    And for people who go to Muay Thai already... do you think 1 hour 3 times a week is enough? Do you train in classes? That is the only thing I see that makes me want to go to the second place, I think people can train much better on their own without a group and specific times, but I haven't ever gone so I wouldn't know.

    Go to the closest one, you'll be more motivated to go.

    The one I go to offers 1 hour a day from Mon-Fri and Saturday is open gym day. I usually try to come early to do some extra training or stay another half hour after class. Find out if your gyms allow that.

    There isn't a huge difference of driving from where I am to either of them, so that isn't such a big deal. Whichever I go to I know I will go no matter how far it is and how much traffic there is or whatever.

    I didn't call to ask but the first gym is probably like you described. The thing is, the second gym is always open and you can go whenever. I would easily have gone 2-3 hours about 3 or 4 times a week, but the first gym looks like it has really good instructors (so does the 2nd one but it just has one) so that's really the only thing that bothers me. I know I'd do better in a place where my progress depended on how fast I went instead of going to scheduled classes and stuff but the first place seems better for everything besides that.

    Hmmm. I'd say go with the first one then. :)

    Do the instructors seem like good fighters or like they just know their stuff? Or both? How are the students at each school? How does their sparring look? What kind of equipment do they have that you personally lack?(of course the least important of the questions, but possibly the clincher)

    If you wanna fight Muay Thai, you should be training 6 days a week. I haven't looked at the sites yet though. I can only say check them both out, and go with what you think you wanna do. With Muay Thai, it's your body you putting out there.

    Well I don't know about the first gym but the second instructor sounds real good and it said he has a 130 win 20 loss record or so.
    I went to the second place and it seemed like a good place. I went right when it opened and there was one guy training with the bags and he looked experienced and I think I'm just gona not bother to visit the first one.
