Having trained in Muay thai, and recently boxing i have come to the conclusion that training in Boxing WILL NOT complement your Muay Thai. The time spent learning another art does not equal the benefit. I see alot of people propagating this on the forum, but i really think it is a myth. The punching and stance in Boxing is vastly different than that of Kickboxing/Muay thai. The punches may LOOK exactly the same, but the applications and defenses are SO different. So so so so so......different. Guys, if you wanna get better at punching for Muay Thai, PRACTICE MORE PUNCHES, there is no quick fix. It is as simple as that. I know not everyone does boxing because they want to get better at MT, to those people that just like the sport of boxing, more power to ya!! Boxing is such a "sweet science", that is the perfect name for the sport. Whoever made that up should get an award. If you are a MT/kickboxer with no interest in boxing, Just stick with what you know about punching offense/defense for YOUR sport. Trust me there is no magic bullet in joining a boxing gym. It is a misguided myth, the two sports are way too different. Any input? Disagree? EDIT: for the record, this has nothing to do with someone switching from boxing to muay thai or vice versa. This was mainly directed to people that crosstrain.
