    Muay Thai... and capoeira?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, and I'm not sure where to post this, so I guess I'll post it here.
    I've been doing Muay Thai for several months, and I really like it, but I feel like it might be benificial to do another martial that complements it. I've been looking around, and it looks like capo might be what I'm looking for. It's by no means an effective stand alone fighting art, but it develops great flexibility, speed, and strength, which would deffinitely help in Muay Thai. Also, some of the Capo kicks do look like they could actually be very effective if they were to make contact, and might be useful in certain situations, if only to surprise or throw the otehr guy off (You don't generally expect a muay thai fighter to do a roundhouse or flying roundhouse kick). What do you guys think?

    In spite of what some other web-sites would have you believe, we here at Bullshido.net welcome you, Durand2511, with open arms and hope that you will share with us your unique experiences and ideas on the martial arts.... so that we may then make fun of those experiences and ideas.

    i think cap is an excellent idea. it's fun, it will improve just about anybody's conditioning, and the women are HOT.

    i wouldn't go looking to cap for anything to add to your muay thai game... but for celebrating a victory or impressing the ladies or just in case a dance fight breaks out, go for it.

    oh, and welcome to bullshido!

    I think you are confused . You dont throw round(house) kicks in your Muay Thai gym ?

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I mean like a full spinning roundhouse, where you momentarily turn your back to the opponent - unless we miss our kicks, in which case we carry through, no we don't.

    Thank you everyone for the welcome.

    This is kinda unrelated, but how long shoul I train before I start fighting? I've been told fighting too soon destroys technique.
