Muay thai, because its more applicable to real life situations and it does more damage/effort spent
I personally think boxing is cooler but man, you gotta decide this for yourself, we can't help you with here.
Just kidding, go for jiu jitsu
Get in shape and then I'll help you choose.
Been doing muay thai for 14 years and there is nothing quite like it. But it really depends on what you're planning to do. If you wanna go pro i'd say boxing is still easier, it's also better to earn money. If you wanna get fit and stay in shape either one will be great for you. For those people who are saying muay thai is better for street fights, i'd say that only partly true, most street fights are usually fist fights, and you'll learn how to use your footwork to your advantage in both sports. You really can't go wrong here.
I'd suggest you to check our your local gyms and ask the people if the coaches are actually capable of teaching you valuable things, there is nothing worse than going to/paying for the gym and making no progress because of a terrible coach. good luck
Nt,Dupreeh.Nothing will save you here in Brazil.
Both are really good, and in my experience I personally prefer boxing. Both sports will get you really fit because they'll require you to work your entire body very hard. If you're looking to learn how to fight then boxing may be a good choice because it will teach you to slip punches and attack quickly, however, muay thai will also teach you to use kicks and elbows which is also a benefit.
Be warned though, constantly targeting the head in boxing means that long term brain injuries are much more likely in boxing, so you may want to consider that if you ever look to compete.
Overall, both are fantastic ways to stay fit, and both will be very effective in teaching you to fight. I personally prefer boxing, but I recommend that you just go with the one that looks like more fun to you.
boxers coming to our gym always get rekt lmao, all goofy kicks n shit
depends what you want to do? -,..,-
kick-boxing, karate or muay thai.
all others suck
why only learn boxing when u can learn kick-boxing ?
I'd say boxing, only because it's something I've wanted to pick up. Honestly though just try out something and switch to the other if you don't like it.
boxing. I've been doing it for a while and it's just awesome
if its just on a casual basis i recommend boxing over muay thai, most of their training schedules are fairly similar up until the sparring honestly, (clinching & the leg work are different in muay thai obviously)
It comes down to personal preference really, i trained muay thai cause its more versatile and loved leg kicks
both are great ways to learn how to hurt people really fucking badly, so it's probably best to base your choice off of convenience. the closest, cheapest, highest quality lessons are the ones you're most likely to attend consistently, and the only way to improve at anything is to consistently do it. good luck man.
muay thai is more versatile cause you learn how to kick and receive kicks beside punching
boxing is easier i guess but if he fights a kick user hes gonna cry in pain cause his legs are not conditioned and might get crippled.
im not joking, even if you go to the gym and do leg day u wont have a clue what it feels like to get kicked on your hips, thighs and knees
muay thai, others are gay
wherever u like most but Muay thai feels a better option for life
Surprised no one here mentioned judo. Btw any stand up artist will beat ground artist in a street fight most of the time. You fella's dont realize most of the ground martial arts take advantage of the fact that you are enclosed in an octagon/ring or whatever. Irl, the muay thai guy has more room, so he won't get wrestlefucked like khabib vs barboza against the fence. And the initial move for taking someone down is very risky irl, where your opponent could be carrying sharp objects. Do you really want to bullcharge for the single leg takedown when the guy might be holding a knife ? didnt think so.
Punching is useless unless your punches can literally destroy people, you want more grappling as if you're going to be fighting someone it could likely be in self defence and they might have a weapon so you want to grapple them and disarm them or get them to the ground and subdue them as quick as possible.
