    Towards the end w/ the black guy :noes:

    I've been meaning to pick up muay thai, my manager at work is sick at it. He will just murder you straight up.
    I take jui-jitsu right now, which is not bad, but imo muay thai is just brutal

    sorry if repost

    take down your manager, pass his non-existent gaurd and soften him up with some GnP then go for the armbar

    Most hardcore? Sure. Best overall? I don't think so. My training partner, before we trained together, was a three time national Muay Thai champion. We sparred once. He was good. It hurt. He said he could beat me MMA rules. I laughed. He was serious. I had only trained BJJ for about 6 months at the time. I ate a good puch and knee to the ribs, but got a hold of his leg, took him down, instantly got mount and that was that.

    As far as conditioning, do interval sprints while jogging and circuit training.

    Circuit training: When lifting, don't rest alot. Move from exercise to exercise. Super-sets and giant sets. It conditions your muscles slightly more for endurance plus it keeps your heart rate up. It also really keeps your intensity up.

    oh okay, yeah i take boxing physical training classes and we basically do that with workouts switching using medicine balls, jumps ropes, weights, etc.

    but i should do that with weight training.

    We saw an example of that with ken flo and kit cope. Cope, apparently, is fairly accomplished muay thai too.

    Yeah, I saw that guy fight with fucking ropes on MTV. I even thought Ken FLo was gonna get smashed. Once again, grappling comes through.

    Regardless, Cope's record:
    IPMTO Light Heavyweight Muay Thai World Champion (23-1-9KO)

    Now, I really don't even know the significance of IMPTO, but on the surface, he seems to be fairly accomplished. Florian dominated him with an armbar and came back to choke him out.

    It's not the best. There is no best.


    For me it's the most fun to watch, practice, and I believe it's the best striking[/] art, but overall there is no best in the realm of fighting. This is why MMA > my nutsack.

    nutsack > MMA.

    I would never give up my testes for MMA. Your testes produce most of your body's testosterone. If you give up the nads for MMA, you're going to suck at fighting because of the lack of testosterone. You can still try (i.e. women) but it will never be the same without your hairy ball sack.

    I just started muay thai almost 2 weeks ago. Undergoing the basics right now and conditioning in a very small class. I have yet to spar with my other class mates, but they all got mass on me but I've got the length. Will that give me an advantage given that I remember my basics?

    Of course. Reach can be a huge advantage if you know how to use it. Not so much with mass though. At least not in muay thai.

    Only Kenny is a bjj black belt and worked alot on his wrestling. I'm not trying to take anything away from the guy, but for a 3 time muay thai national champion to get taken down so easily by someone with only 6 months of bjj experience is really :eek3: . Even with no grappling experience really good thai boxers can toss even wrestlers around with trips and throws.

    I took brazilian jui jitsu for 6 months myself, the only reason i quit is because i didn't like the way they taught it at the school. Luckily, my boxing gym offered it up stairs, no gi's, belts, w/e.

    It's a very good martial art, especially groundwork. I think once a muay thai fighter get's on the ground and starts grappling with the bjj, he's finished. Considering they're both well experienced.


    Shooto, i take it you've done or still do muay thai, right?
