    • If you're doing it at the same place, with the same coaches there probably won't be tons of difference in how you learn to punch and kick. Depending on where you go the rhythm is quite different. Kickboxing is fought with a lot more urgency because the fights are two rounds shorter + scoring favours aggression. It'll help your Muay Thai for sure. As for how they're different? It really depends on what sort of kickboxing you're learning. If you're learning what typically gets called 'K1 rules' nowadays, you're learning the same tools from Muay Thai, but without elbows and clinch work is much more limited (K1 used to allow for more clinching but Buakaw and Overeem were too dominant with it). Teeps are a rarity, Giorgio Petrosyan is the most dominant combat sport athlete of all time, and a large part of his success comes from shoves and teeps + that guy has beaten quite literally every top name except for Masato and a draw against Buakaw.  You should learn some clinch work, because in kickboxing you need to know how to punch and clutch, because the pace is so fast. I'd say it was probably just that particular class.  If your focus is Muay Thai, I'd suggest to train kickboxing every so often but I wouldn't focus  on it. If you'd rather kickboxing competition you can really stay and train in either, just so long as you're okay with losing weapons if you're training Muay Thai and competing in kickboxing, but you certainly won't be lost so long as you're sparring regularly with people who have a kickboxing style.
    • How do the two differ? I do Thai but last night did kickboxing class since I was too late to make it to Thai. Seemed more punch orientated and we did no clinch work but this may have just been the structure of that individual class. Enjoyed it, and will go back, will it help improve my Thai also?
    • Hey! When it comes to structure training, over here we have some 15mins of warm-up. After that we either go to 5-6 rounds of pad work, 2 times. One holding pads, partner working out and change after the first set. At the end some 100 or 150 kicks each leg at the heavy bag or pads and some strength.  For Pad work just gather your ideas, you can go for any technique or combination you like. On technique days, we just go for partner training, without pads. If you don't remember any techniques to improve, just sort some out online. Every one performing each technique 2 or 3 times, then change, with rounds of ~3min. Hope that could help you a little.
