Would Muay Thai be detrimental for a boxer? I've boxed for about a half a year, and started Muay Thai several weeks ago. I love everything about boxing, but there was only so much I could do on my own, so I went looking for a gym. I couldn't find a boxing gym within reasonable distance of my home, but I did find a Muay Thai school. They've got a boxing class, but it's not great seeing as though it was made for the Muay Thai students to work solely on their hands. I figured I'd also take the MT classes for the conditioning, and try to learn the oher aspects of striking. Would learning Muay Thai be detrimental to my progress in boxing? The difference in stance and strategy was immediatly visible to me, and causes me to ask this. Thanks.
