    Muay Thai in Albany NY

    I'm looking to replace "aikido" in my style field with a good striking art. Phone book and google not much help. I know some of you are quite good at finding schools anywhere. Does it exist around here?

    The Thai Boxing Association of the USA lists three schools in New York: Progressive Martial Arts in Fresh Meadows, Coban's Muay Thai in New York City, and Nubreed Martial Arts in Whitestone. I know nothing about New York geography, so I don't know if any of those are anywhere near Albany.

    I'm glad to see you leaving that school of yours ukemi. They might also have a Kyokushin school where you live. Muay Thai is really expensive. Where I live it's $125 a month.

    Thanks. Although none of them are close enough for me to train at. I might have to do boxing, but I want that mean round kick, damnit.

    I've picked up what I need from there. I'd like to be doing more sparring now outside of what we do in BJJ. That's my only real gripe with the aikido school, no sparring.

    People who name their name after their style or a certain aspect of it regret it later.

    Nope. Albany is a good 3 hours from NYC. I go down to the city occasionally if Renzo is teaching a class at his academy, but it's too far to drive for consistant training.

    That aspect of aikido has probably been the most valuable thing I have picked up from it. It comes in handy a lot when I have to spar with guys who are good wrestlers or judoka. In fact, if I never trained aikido, I would have probably been injured by now in BJJ since our group almost always starts from stand-up and some of those guys can slam you pretty good. We've had to call the ambulance twice so far from injuries resulting from a hard takedown.
