    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What do you guys think about Muay Thai?

    I just wanted to know is muay thai an affective style to take. Like is it very destructive for like street fighting. I took alot of tkd when i was young. i live here in st. louis so alot of schools tend to take your money....then when i turned 15 i took capoeira for about two years..but the thing about that is capoeira is not a good style for street fighting because u might not have time to gina or u might not have the space... i think it would only work if are very experienced at it...but i found a school down here last week that teach muay thai for about 5$ a class. I went to check out today and it wasnt that bad at all..Its a very small school with only about 7 students so u get alot of attention from the teacher...the teacher fight in the iska or the iskf are sumthin like that...but i just wanted you guys opinion on if i should start or not....i dont know anymore styles here to take because im trying to stay away from tkd....thanx

    Muay Thai is probably the most recommended striking art due to it's extremely powerful strikes. Personally though, if I were you I would try to also find a place to learn grappling, or if possible find a school in your area that concentrates more on MMA or NHB rather than just striking so that you can see the whole picture of a fight, not just a one dimensional image.

    Train hard.

    I love MT, if I could only pick 2 arts, MT & a ground fighting...BJJ/JJ/subwrestling, is what I would train in..
    I like knees & elbows, like the strong low kicks. It's very effective...for NHB or on the street...

    Oh btw, I always mention BJJ JJ & subwrestling..because, I have trained with wrestlers, BJJ guys & JJ guys...so, I'm not real loyal to one in particular...Have done more BJJ though.

    I would have to agree with Sam once again. I have been doing BJJ for five years now, but I am just now begining to learn a little bit on the MT side. So far what I have learned has proven to be really efficiant. The striking accpect of the art is without a doubt fantastic. I am definitaly going to pick more MT up here shortly.

    I agree as well. Brazilian Jujutsu or wrestling mixed with Muay Thai is a great combonation.

    I would say to do this. You sound young so - at your school, get on the wrestling team. That is free in high school. All you need to pay for is shoes, a cup and head gear. At the same time take Muay Thai for $5 a lesson. Later on when you can afford it take BJJ.

    my kung fu eeeeeees better than yours!

    Seems you've found something good. Maybe you could write something about the place and submit it?

    Muay Thai is probably the best striking art along with jkd. altough I do agree that you should take bjj or wrestling.
