      The best thing about starting a new MA is changing the style field in your profile.

            Change must be tough I did the whole TMA to muay thai thing a few weeks ago. Wasn't as bad though because I took 2 weeks of kyokushin right before goin to muay thai, the daily beatings I got there helped me prepare for the conditioning and stuff.

              Yeah,after half the session I was like tumling around in a tired-as-fuck haze.
              And those lowkicks hurt :(

                Sounds much like my switch from the kung fu to the bjj.

                  Yeah I know what you mean man, Im still debating whether I should go back to my Goju Ryu, just doing conditioning, boxing, and kickboxing holds MUCH more appeal for me right now.
                  Would you rather your instructor call you a retard and tell you to move your pussy ass harder? He was just offering encouragement, after you've been there for a bit he'll probably (hopefully) start getting your technique better. If he doesnt... dum dum dum dummmm

                  If you do like him insulting you, you may want to look into BDSM as a past time activity, you sick, sick bastard

                  lol

                  ahh anyways, keep us updated, pictures would be great :D

                    ...just so long as they aren't as ghey as your usual pictures, McDojo Artist. That means no gratuitous male nudity, none!

                    Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .

                        Damn, I switched to MT after 5 years of Shotokan. We did hard workouts in Shotokan, so I didn't gas out much in MT, but it was humbling to see how little I knew how to fight after all those years in Karate.

                        On the other hand, I think the emphasis on hip rotation, focus, and stance in Shotokan helped reduce the MT learning curve alot. I think you'll also find that after a few months, you'll punch harder than most of your MT class thanks to the Shotokan training.

                          Heh, I made the switch to Muay Thai after 8 years of TKD. The only real difficult part of the transition was retraining my roundhouse kick (the TKD roundhouse and MT roundhouse are two completely different animals). I spent 2 solid weeks an hour a day doing nothing but roundhouse the heavy bag to drill out my old instincts.

                          And ja, it hurts like a bitch during the first parts of shin coniditoning and low kicks, but you get used to it ^_^

                              Just relax and drink a lot of orange juice.

                              Should only put you out two days tops as long as you take it easy.
