I don’t want to discourage you my friend… but learning muay thai techniques for you will be just waisting time… with your body weight and experience lifting heavy weights forget about MT… However, you can still be a decent fighter on the street if you really want to, you just have to find your own style that suits your huge muscular body… basically all you need just to be mean, practice defend your chin with elbows, and a quick explosive move forward in order to grab your opponent, then headbutt and by using your big mass and strength take him down on the ground and so on…
actually, some aikido lessons might also help you, I know some huge bouncers have been taught basic aikido stuff quite successfully. While sambo, BJJ, boxing, muay thai isn’t for you… but you can still win against them in the street fight with no rules, especially if they are at least 45 pounds lighter than you. You just have to have a fighters spirit in yourself and be mean when it needed… Powerlifting and bodybuilding aren’t that useless for a street fight as some people would think, you just have to be a fighter in yourself and have desire to crush your opponent. But in any circumstances don’t go to exchange punches or kicks - that will be unpleasant experience for you. Just ask your friend to punch you a little and kick you, so you can practice that elbow defense and slightly get used to kicks.
Hope my advice will will help you. [/quote]
What a HUMONGOUS crock of shit. Muay Thai techniques a waste for a big guy? where did you come up with this bullshit. Yeah Muay Thai has a few high kicks and stresses flexibility and speed but saying a big guy can’t learn this stuff is just plain dumb. There are people doing much harder martial arts and tricks at the op’s size.
Scott Adkins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5FP7Y4Jy98 (Not as big as op but at his size does very hard kicks with little effort)
Michael Jai White: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQJ0_ecNXCA (Has been bigger than the op and does a great deal of Tae Kwon Do kicks effortlessly)
Lateef Crowder: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDBnkf-hSjk (Not the same as the previous two guys he is more a stunt guy/tumbler)
I won’t even mention the countless heavy weight fighters in MMA that have all been trained in Muay Thai.
Please think and do research next time you spew out such garbage advice. Your way of thinking is why so many retards think bodybuilders are “unfunctional” whatever that even means.
I apologize for my wrong advice… seems neither this guy, nor other people liked it:)… I will leave him to find out himself… and when he wins an official muay thai fight, I will apologize one more time… anyone can kick bags or push air and call it muay thai… and nowadays this combat sport in west culture has also been turned into commercial aerobic exercise to make it more suitable for pussies and homosexuals… it’s not necessarily bad… jus saying… But I still believe that bodybuilders are unfunctional:)) Heavyweight fighter with bigger muscles isn’t necessarily a bodybuilder though.
