First off, by no means am I going to compete because I am 35 and just started getting into this stuff. My goal is to learn a self-defense technique, while getting into peak shape. At the same time, I want to learn how to do things properly. I took a Dutch Kickboxing class for about 1.5 months (going twice a week) and just started kickboxing. However, I want to start Muay Thai as well. If I do Muay Thai and North American kickboxing, would this help or hinder me? I've noticed the stances are slightly different. I know Muay Thai and BJJ go well together, but I don't think I can do BJJ. It's too hard for me. I might want to do boxing too, but the stances in boxing vs Muay Thai are so different that I'm afraid I might confuse myself. Any advice?
