    Which of these two of these standing arts would you use to compliment your grappling skills and why? I have to choose one of these for my own training and I'm having a hard time deciding. Thanks for any info.

    Boxing adds hands.

    MT adds hands, elbows, legs, feet, and knees.

    I'd go with MT.

    Boxing is pretty good, but Muay Thai is a better choice. Also, the physical conditioning for MT rocks. If you wanna be able to take a hit, try Muay Thai.

    try to do both: boxing better hands, MT: better everything else in terms of striking. See which you prefer. Really you should try to do both if possible. :)

    I don't get it, though. I thought boxing and Muay Thai trained the same techniques in a similiar fashion?

    Well, I've been training MT at RIMA for about a week. Guess what the first thing I learned was - boxing. So... BOTH!
