10- I ALREADY HAVE SOME MARTIAL ARTS EXPERIENCE…IS IT GOOD OR BAD TO LEARN MUAY THAI NOW?
Any martial arts experience and experience with sports is good! However it can also be difficult to change from your present way of thinking and way of moving…to your new Muay Thai style! You probably will have to “unlearn” and “start” again!
But that is a small price to pay if you want to learn Muay Thai! If you play soccer all your life then start to play rugby…your soccer experience will help you in some aspects of the game…but to play good rugby you’ll have to learn rugby…and train rugby style! The opposite also is true!
Again it all depends on your objectives and reasons to learn Muay Thai. If you just want to learn the basics give yourself at least 3 or 6 months! If you want to learn enough to compete at amateur level…you should give yourself at least 12 months! If you want to teach, it will take at least 3, 4, 5 years!
It is a simple yet complex art, and it takes practice time, dedication, and effort to be good at it! Like anything else!
