Lol... I'm starting Muay Thai on next friday. Instead of my Friday TJJ class. I used to do a bit of boxing, so I should take a bit to Muay Thai. I've got a right busy MA schedule this year. It's my resolution. Mon - TJJ, Tue - BJJ, Wed - BJJ, Fri - Muay Thai, Sat morning - BJJ... The idea is, is if I'm spending only a little on these, I can't spend it in the pub...

We'll see how long this lasts...

Ooops, didn't answer your question Robsco... I was just looking for some info and techniques etc on Muay Thai before my first lesson. I'm funny like that y'see...

It's quite good actually, as I've got a RGJJN club and a Muay Thai club with a champion instructor (or so i've been told) on my doorstep. Neat eh? I'd be a mug not to take it up.!

Si... I know they don't really have a syllabus. But I just wanted to know a bit about the different strikes etc, i.e., The Cross and stuff. I just wanted to know a bit about how the lessons work etc.

How long you been doing Muay Thai for anyway? How often do you go and how much have you improved since you began going? Do you spar yet? I should have my first lesson on Friday hopefully. It's a 3 hour class which sounds kinda tiring!

I've done it on and off for about 7 years at various clubs. Your boxing will help loads i came from an amateur boxing background. A typical lesson involves a line up pretty much usual ma, warm up loads of stretching alot of leg stretches for obvious reasons.

A combination is normally demod, shadow boxing style practice that for a bit (all part of warm up really) then you get a partner grab a pad and practice some more combos, clinches, knee strikes etc. If you done boxin nathan youll be alright its just the added knees elbows but thats easy enough...

At the end of the lesson you may do some low contact sparring i.e practicing defending low kicks high kicks etc and countering them.

The lesson normally finishes with a bit of CV work i.e On your left leg kick pad 5 times then 4 then 3 then 2 then 1 then back up to five as fast as you can then change leg. Similar to boxing with the pads.

Then its the warm down with yet more stretching.

3 hours seems long the longest ive had is two hours. Let me know how you get on but you should enjoy it i've been hooked for years on it!!!!!

:-D

Yeah... I'll let you know Si. I should be going on Friday. There's hardly any Thai Boxing clubs where I am. Then I me some guy down the local who does it. And it turns out that there's a club about 10 minutes walk from where I live. Sweet eh?

I keep having 'twinges' in the knee. But It's getting steadily better, i'm gonna put the Muay and BBJ back a month I think so I can get it 100% instead of wrecking it properly... been going back to TJJ though. Funnily enough (although it's not actually funny) one of the guys there was a BROWN belt and lost his entire right leg. I've never asked him how it happened.. but he's made it to a black belt, and he's just training me in cool stuff in TJJ... I'm not really bothered about the belts to be honest... he's showing me pressure points, wristlocks, chokes and just cool shit. That's all I think TJJ is good for. I reckon if you've a good TJJ knowledge, you'd be shit hot at BJJ. Anyways, that's my two cents, and if you can't tell by the rambling in this post. I've just come back from the pub. :-p

Take it easy!
