    Muay Thai classes?

    current martial arts experience: 0

    what should I expect.

    also, debate the best martial art for self defense. Is there some other class I should take instead? don't say krav maga.

    Google your local Muay Thai school. Call them and do a trial class.

    They should teach you the proper stance and how to properly throw punches, knees, elbows, kicks and clinches. You should be hitting pads also.

    I think a good beginner mt class would have some type of warm up. Whether it be some slight conditioning or not doesn’t matter. Some shadow boxing and padwork/bag work. Maybe some burn out drills or something fun.


    Self defense is always situational, but I would say boxing or wrestling. Obviously mma is the best form of self defense but no one counts that as a martial art so whatever

    For me, the best martial art for self defense is BJJ. This is because BJJ is simple, practical and enjoyable to learn (obviously differs per person). Also, it doesn't matter what size you are, if you reach a good level in BJJ you can easily take on a bigger opponent with less experience in BJJ or another martial art.

    Happy to hear others' thoughts on this.
