This may has been asked already, (sorry i am new) but i am thinking of starting one of these styles. I am leaning on the Muay Thai. My main concern is losing muscle. Opinions?
id do muy thai cuz its either kick ass or get your ass kicked. or greco roman wrestling. just pick one that sounds appealing to you, its a hobby so do one you like
Jiu Jitsi + wrestling.
From my experience in the world of Mixed Martial Arts; boxing and wrestling are the go to due to what each teaches you. I myself don't have much training in wrestling just BJJ and Judo. Striking martial arts depends on your build.
Muay thai has been suggested by most! I am suprised
It just depends on the gym you decide to train at and your reach. But if you find a martial art that strikes interest I say do it. Striking is just a preference.
I would rather see someone get submitted with a Nice arm bar or a rear naked choked, then be held down the whole fight and getting hit with sloppy punches..
I feel that wrestling is a great base to have, I also feel Bjj is a great add on. Striking is great but if you don't have a solid ground game you won't have much success.
Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained!!
^^^^agreed!! Need to know what your doing on the floor unless you have dynamite in your hands!!
Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu are great. I always thought striking would be more useful but the last 2 real fights I've been in my grappling skills have been extremely useful to the point where I don't even have to worry about being hit. once you take an untrained person to the ground you can have your way with them. Keep in mind both of these incidents were self defense, I don't go around starting fights for no reason.
