AWESOME Found a Muay Thai gym! Questions within

Hey guys,

As luck would have it a MT gym is opening RIGHT next to my weightlifting gym! I am new to MT but was wondering what sort of questions I can ask the instructor before joining the place? I wanted to make sure the instructor is qualified before joining up.

I am pumped about this, I have been looking for a gym to train at for ages. This place has wall to wall full length heavy bags, all kinds of gloves and kick pads.

Now I just need to find somewhere with a decent BJJ instructor!

Cheers,
Chris

ps- I come from a TKD, traditional kickboxing and a little bit of judo background.

Well, you can start by asking when the instructor started, and how much experience he has with the martial art, and teaching in general. I mean, he could be a 100 year world champion, but could be the crappiest teacher in the world.

Maybe ask him if you could have a week trial? Just to check it out, to see if the class is right for you. (If you don't want to hurt his feelings and his class sucks, just tell him you can't handle the excersizes and you just found a new job that takes all your time, or something, lol)

P.S. I take Muay Thai, BJJ, and boxing all at the same place.

I concur with the above post. I'd pay a drop-in fee and go a couple times before you sign up. My first MT gym had a great instructor...a great instructor who was always absent, in trouble with the law, or too lazy to come to class. I stayed there for 9 months because my friends all trained there, and finally switched gyms. The equipment was better, the instruction was more involved and I just had a better experience all around.

Lesson is, get your foot wet before you jump in.
