Hi guys, I've decided that my schedule this semester leaves my Thursday nights really open and that the school Muay Thai club has a schedule that perfectly plugs that hole. It's really tempting; I've been doing (and continue to do) Japanese jujutsu for a year, but I've wanted to do a more striking oriented martial art as well and I thought MT sounded like a good candidate from what I've seen. My school's club seems to be pretty open about who they take, especially given that they know I'd only be able to make one of the two weekly practices and are OK with it, so my concern might seem strange but I wanted to ask on here. I have one question that concerns me before I join. I'm at the school on a full ride academic scholarship, which is probably worth more to me in the long run than MT. Because of this, I need my head to be working 100%. I understand that head injuries are a risk in any martial art and that each club is different, but since MT is a boxing type art and I've never been to a boxing practice of any sort, I wanted to ask on here: based on your experience with it, what's the chance of getting a "serious" head injury (think concussion) for a newb? Do they usually take it easy with head strikes, or do they go all out once you learn the ropes? I realize that I sound over cautious, even to myself, but I gotta protect what's saving me big money every year. Thanks in advance for replies.
