What's up guys. I'm a judoka looking to do some muay thai on the side. So I got some questions. I saw some video clips where some muay thai fighters got their leg snapped in half like a twig. I can't help but admit that that is some scary ass shit. Are broken legs or other horrifying injuries common in muay thai? Or rare, freak occurences? I heard striking is a bit easier to get good at compared to grappling. I'll give an arbitrary numbers.. say like two years. If I did muay thai for two years as a hobby could I become a "proficient" striker and a decent competitor? I'm 20 right now. I'm a bit anxious to get good quickly since I feel like 20 yrs old is kinda late age to start. Is it? Judo is a hobby that you can do into old age. Is muay thai too rough to have as a life-long hobby?
