Muai Thai Training Program

Does anyone know a good Muay Thai training program?

I hear you got to to do alot of cardio and endurance strength training.

I have a slam man which I can practise punches and kicks on aswell.

Im 21 and looking into starting it, I have no experience in any other martial arts.

I just feel this will be a way to get mentally strong.

    If your looking at getting into it, ditch the slam man as this will be no use what so ever and enrol in a decent club in your area so you learn from the start good technique and bad habits dont get chance to become instinctive.

    As for 'training' other than trying to train at the club as often as possible, try jogging to improve stamina and chin ups/weighted chin ups to greatly aid you when it come to grapple/clinch work.

    Dont go kicking trees.
    Dont go hitting your legs with pieces of pipe/sticks.
    Dont go rolloing glass coke bottles up and down your shins.

    Why?
    All the old school Thai Boxers still swear by it now... And a lot of them are instructors..

    agree with dwarfenegger 100%, those 3 methods you have told him not to do, have been used for years with awesome results of numbing shins!

    Who ??

    I cant imagine master sken, richard smith, master A , sandy holt alan keddle et al recommedning their students do it.
    Go in any top gym in this county and you wont see that crap going on, they dont do it in thailand so why do it over here? If you going to come back telling me yes they kick trees in thailand ? Well no not really they dont, yes you can kick 'banana' trees, but theyre not really a tree like a sycamore or an oak tree in the park, and they are softer then bone, hence why its possible to kick them.

    The only thing needed to conditon the shins is constant regular training, ie heavy bag work, pad work and sparring (and a large portion of mind over matter) . Hitting them with objects harder than bone itself is stupid, not necessary, and an invitation for injury - not what a new starter is ideally after.

    Kicking a heavy bag often has conditioned my shins greatly, initially it can be sore but you'll get over it.

    kicking a heavy bag is one thing.....

    find a club, see if you like it first before you try kicking down a bamboo tree.

    Dont listen to idiots who recommend things like kicking trees and stuff as you generally find they havnt been in a Dojo or arena in their life, get to your nearest Thai club and let the guys who know what they are talking about show you.

    I wasn't recommending doing that, I was asking why SOME Instructors (good old skool instructors) tell you to do this?

    i agree with just kicking the heavy bag and sparring will condition it enough, i cant see it as good advice to smash things on your tree.

    I cant wait for the day i see someone in the local park kicking an oak tree lol
