    a normal class (not fighters) is usually:
    • warm-up: usually skipping or jogging (10 mins)
    • drills (e.g. kick only sparring or a minute teep/knees)
    • 2 or 3 techniques demonstrated by the coach
    • 2 or 3 rounds of freestyle pad work
    • abs/burn-out

    Why I don\t like Muay Thai, another set of reasons. Too tough guy-ish.<HisEye>

    30 minutes of rolling stone on your shins followed by 30 minutes of kicking a concrete pillar followed by 1 hour of dancing with a tennis racket on your head.

    I won't. <6> Muay Thai needs more depth re training.

    There's an interesting contrast with boxing footwork. Boxing is better developed.
