Muay Thai or MMA

Hi there, made an acocunt up just to figure somethings out
my town is full of some good fighters and trainers alot muay thai but mma has started to grow hear i started training a month ago in mma with a man called

David Digiovanni-http://www.frasercoastchronicle.com.au/story/2009/06/11/david-masters-martial-arts/

ive been going to mma for everynight of the week except sundays and can really say i feel alot healthier but dont feel like im progressing much.

all he wants to teach is stand up but he calls it mma now on the other hand there is a well respected muay thai coach where i live he has trained a world champion and alot of state champions his name is he is also training 1 or 2 mma fighters at the moment

Craig Glover- http://www.frasercoastchronicle.com....unch-with-job/

i personally think muay thai is better because you use hands,knees,clinch,elbows,feet and you can defend head kicks well but boxing is better for head movement and blocking shots and also you will have better punch technique, also dont let the progress thing get in your head, i know because it use to happen to me and it takes more than a month to feel comfortable with everything

I can offer an opinion since I train alot, but bear in mind that I got into the game a little too late to hop into the cage so to speak.

"I just wanted to no what one will be more useful for in the ring fighting"...

MMA and Muay Thai are different sports from a competition standpoint. If you go into a MMA match with just Muay Thai you will probably get owned. I say this because I train with kickboxers who school me until we do an MMA round then things get reversed because they have no, or very little, ground game.

Ultimately it depends on what type of competition you want to do. Again, this is my opinion based on my experiences and there are alot of people on this forum with more than me.

Hope this provides some insight..

Well MMA isn't actually an Art, its a competition using multiple Martial Arts together.

Muay Thai is perfectly fine to be used as a striking Art. It trains the practitioner to use many of the aspects of striking that are possible to be used in a sport environment.

In my opinion, learning Martial Arts such as Muay Thai, Judo, Brazilian Jiu-jitzu, Karate, etc. separately is a much better way to learn the fundamental techniques involved, because its the entire focus of that day of training. All you do every single day of Jiu-jitzu class is learn to roll, and develop better technique, a deeper gas tank, and overall skill. An MMA gym, also in my opinion, is a great way to put it all together in a controlled environment. For example, you know how to grab a clinch and slam knees home from Muay Thia, you know how to sweep from Judo, and know how to roll and control the opponent from BJJ, and in the MMA gym, you can learn how to use all of these aspects in conjuction.

But this is all my 2 cents, hope it helps!
