Full contact, kick boxing and muay thai

Hi everybody,

I live in France and i've been trying to find a place in which i could learn muay thai. The only place available in the city i live in is a place in which you learn full contact then kickboxing and then muay thai. The muay thai stage only lasts one month or so , i mean you learn it for only one month. Unfortunately it is the only place available....... do you think that learning muay thai after going to the place i just quoted for one year will make it hard for me to learn muay thai afterwards ? Will not i have picked up bad habits ? In terms of stance , body position when hitting etc.......

Thanks for reading.

Let me preface this by saying that I am not a professional, but it seems to be that if you dont have a martial arts background, learning how to throw a kickboxing kick will only help you learn how to throw a muay thai kick. Many MMA fighters started with a more tradional art like TKD or Karate and used that as a base to learn technique.

Certainly, a month of kickboxing is better than a month of no technique training, as long as the coaches are competent. I'd only be worried about learning bad technique if it was at a crappy GYM or a kickboxing cardio class taught at the YMCA, or something like that.
