jayjay has a little shameless behaviour in the past
yesterday i went to my first muay thai class, since i am getting back into martial arts and i want to compete eventually in the future i never trained in a striking art but i was a little disapointed cause the class had 1 teacher and a fighter in mauy thai helping. The class consisted of about 13 people and the other students have been to the mauy thai class before the stance is very difficult and this was my first time even in a striking class it was like he had us doing drills of kicks,punches,knees,and elbows to the heavy bag and alot of push up's and running around the mat alot of exercise and cardio i am used to learning one thing at a time like in all the other arts i have taken they will go over a move and make you drill it until you are comfortable with the move and also can master it when i first got to the class the fighter that was helping out the teacher was helping me learn the stance for about 15 minutes then i got partnered up with a guy that has been in the class for a year he said he competes and is a black belt in akido, judo and a brown belt in bjj the thing that i did not understand was why partner me off if i don't even know the right stance yet i was confused the whole class and the guy they partnered me with was not so friendly and since he was doing it a year i thought he would help with the movements but he really just wanted to let me block his elbows when i signed up at the school it was 125$ for bjj and to use the gym it was only 25$ more to take another art it was between muay thai and boxing but since my muay thai class i don't know what i should do cause there is only 1 teacher and the fighter that helps him the teacher seems to know alot he used to be a mauy thai champion in my bjj classes there are 3 sometimes more teachers even though there is alot more people in bjj you learn one move at a time and you keep doing it until you can do the movement flawless but the mauy thai class i was everywhere i never hit a punching bag i mean i have no stand up at all and in the drills i did not know how to kick right or anything i can always switch to boxing or stick it out in the mauy thai class i want to learn everything i can the guy i was partnered up with told me that eventually i will start to get the hang of it i am very confused what would you guys do in my situation.thanks

thanks alot the way i explained how the mauy thai class was is that how the class is supposed to be just keep throwing elbows,knee's,kicks, and punches and eventually i will start to get the hang of it and find the right way to getting my stance right and throwing the knee's,elbows,kicks, and punches the right way i never have taken a striking art so i am sorry for all the questions is this the normal way for training in mauy thai

its that Muay thai and most striking arts require alot of movement during a bout that classes are done in a more dynamic way. If possible try talking to the instructor explian that you were feeling lost.. perhaps he can have of the more advanced students work with you . But the main thing is hang in there. THat is a decent size class 2 instructors basicly with 13 students is not so bad.. grappling usualy has a higher teacher student ratio since its harder to see things when on the ground for a teacher.. try not to get discouraged and hang in there..

thanks i am going to stick with the mauy thai it just is really confusing cause i do not even know the right stance or how to kick and punch the right way i thought that i would first be taught the right stance and once i got it i would move on from there i really want to learn the art the right way i am so used to being on the ground or stand up grappling that i am not used to a striking art but is this how mauy thai is usually taught the mauy thai instructers name is Christian "King cobra" Toleque he is the 2001 USA extreme challenge champion he also is the Shin do Kumate cruiserwieght title belt champion with a record of 23-0 and the boxing coach at the school is Howard Davis Jr. he is the olympic gold medalist 1976 games and recieved the val baker award for most outstanding boxer with a record of 36-6-1 14 KO's maybe you know about them so from what i told you about the class does it sound like what i explained about the mauy thai class is how it is usually taught? i want to have good hand and leg speed with a good stand up and be in good shape from what i told you if you were in my position do you think i will benefit? i want to thank you for taking the time to answer my questions so i really need a stand up because right now i have nothing

well alot of school you kinda just enter and just pick up as you go along.. the instructors cover the basics one day and more advanced skills another.. so give it some time.. if your still lost and confused.. ask the instructor to go over some stuff with you.. or ask one of the more advanced students if they can work with you.. in a good school this is encouraged and most people will be willing to help.

yes or even private lessons, my school offers private for $25 an hour, then your trainer works stricktly for you, you way what you want to learn.

of coarse is pricy but like 2-3 private lessons a month maybe
