To be honest, I would take Muay Thai over TKD any day of the week.

Really If you become a legitimate tkd fighter you will be pretty good however you have to find the right school alot of tkd schools arnt that good and won't serve you well in a fight.

MT schools are almost always legit and you learn more punches.

they are just good for different things tkd is good with kicks and forms and mussle memory

while MT will teach you better boxing skills and clinch work.

they both serve as great base styles just look at prices location and the experience you cant go wrong with either.

I have learned boxing along with tkd for about 3 years. We don't do much with fancy kicks etc. and whenever people from our school go to compete, we do very well especially in sparring b/c many more traditional tkd practitioners don't know much about using their hands. My school is definitely far more grounded in potential practical application of the art than any tkd school I've ever heard of.

if you could combine the two styles you'd have a very dangerous stand up game. both are useful, but TKD is good for learning more long ranged attacks and counters where as Muay Thai would really help you for when in close

If MT was available to me here, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Yes, I know. I believe they don't chamber up their kicks etc.

yeah TKD don't really put their hips into it, they use the snap of their knee to try and produce power, they are more into speed then torque.

Idk about that my teacher is constantly reminding us to put our hip into kicks like roundhouse and any turning kick.
