Well, it happened like this: I went to the gym, saw a friendly looking guy there, he seemed quite the regular person and i asked him about wether im in the good place or not. He told me to wait for the coach and talk to him. Soon after, another quite intimidating guy ( he was quite taller than me, and from what i saw he's the best guy around there, followed closely the the first guy i talked to in terms of skill) , camed out of the gym and welcomeed me inside and he also told me to wait for the coach. He finally arrived, it was quite a brief discussion then he gaved me some gloves and off i went, doing ( or at least trying as hard as i could) to stick to the drills and execute as correctly as i could. With a small trace of dissapointment on my soul i gotta admit that i am a total mess. I understood the theory and watched details closely, but when i tried to replicate..... only god knows how far i was actually from the real thing. Beign the only southpaw there makes me feel quite awkward and i thend to throw cross instea dof jabs, per say, due to how punches are name din my language wich make sit quite easy to mix em up especially under adrenaline's influence. Fun fact! in the gym there was also a lady in her late 50's wich trained head to head with the others and i got paired with her for the drills. and i gotta say she surprisingly holds up really well. The first drill was focused around punching and footworck, wich I must say its quite grounded from what i noticed. The drill went like this: we were standin face to face, near a padded square on the wall, so the pad was in my left. block a hook, throw a hook onto the pad on the wall and a straight with the other hand.wich the parther has to block. then we altered this drill to a dodge instead of block then we did soem kind of in-and out movement like, half a step front foot,back one stood still, 7 alternativepunches, retreat back foward, 5 hits, back and forth 3 hits , go to side n back on the line another drill we did was superman punch into side move, pushign motion with the front hand then kick-knee whatever we felt like would hit better we slowly circled and threw one-twos on the bag ( counterclockwise for me, clockwise for the others) then... we went for another drill wich was the epithome of my cluelessness. By that time i had gassed out , my allready sloppy unnexisting tecnique went even worse, and we had togrip the bag and charge alternative knees into it, supposedly straigth, with the leg commign from waaay back, and it took me goood seconds to even get my leg into the place where it would actually had to be. alternatign between hegs at the speed other were doing it, had me kinda hugging the bag and basigly side-keeing it: the coach promptly attentioned me that what i did was wrong, wich i were totally aware and then he commented that muay thai exits for tousands of years and what i did was not muay thai. it was pretty awkward for me because i did not ment to insult the art nor clamied that i knew what im doing... it's just that i was bad... really bad but no matter how hard i tried to get it right, the tierdness and maybe a small bit of frustration had me unable to focus anymore all in all im glad the coach points out the mistakes,. And so, my first "trial" muay thai class ended. the coach told me the next session is wednesday ( tomorrow) and he told me i can come then to oficcialy sign in and told me general info liek the contribution fee and regular training schedule. Despite my mixed feelings i don't feel i wanna give up that easy, i will stick to it for a while and hopefully my sttubornness will thrive. If you red up to this point i appreciate that you allocated your time to read my story, and i would really love to hear your toughts/reviews/criticism regarding the gym, my performance, the coach's attitude, drills etc.
