    Is Muay Thai good to learn?

    Is it good to learn for self defense and having the confidence to defend yourself?

    How long does it take to get decent?

    I think any form of self defense / martial art is good to learn.

    how long will it take you to get good? depends on how quickly you learn, how often you train, etc.

    I train Mauy Thai and it shouldn't take you longer than 3 months to have the ability to defend yourself against most of the average joes on the street. Any good Mauy Thai gym can teach you how to effectively strike, evade strikes, add combos and increase your level of fitness in that time.

    What people say here about 3 months, ofcourse you know the basics BUT it will take longer for your bones to harden (shins etc) --> This is what can make the difference in a street fight.

    I say like ~1 yr to get the technique down and get used to doing the small things without thinking about it. Then the rest is just how much you spar.

    I can believe it. There are a LOT of scrubs fighting in those amateur underground cages (not to take away from their dedication/hard work)
    Thats life, son!

    You'll learn pretty quickly in six months if you actually do live sparrig, the same goes for any martial arts. You will find that the learning curve is pretty quick when the consequence every time you make a mistake is being punched in the face, even if you wear head gear.

    It should take less than six months, if it takes any longer than that you should probably consider sprinting for self defense

    Been doing Muay Thai for 5 years now...

    I would say 6 months or so and you should be able to defend yourself. It isn't as good as krav maga for self defense, but the thing is, your average joe on the street doesn't know chit about fighting so you'd still be able to destroy them. Knees, elbows, punches and even quick low kicks are nice for self defense. You would be shocked how many people don't know how to property punch or defend.

    Most people instinctively defend low kicks with a hand to try and catch it (huge mistake), or try to slip a punch. That doesn't work too well (well, slipping a punch does if you can do it, but very few people are that good at it) in reality. And most people don't know how to property punch or even throw an elbow.
