I have been going to a muai thai gym for about 3 months now and am really enjoying it. However one thing that is a bit of a pain is i seem to be the only southpaw in the gym.
All the punches / kicks / combos etc are all demonstrated in the orthodox stance. Its not that hard to convert it to southpaw but sometimes i think maybe i should just train like all the other guys to make it easier on everyone (training partners).
Also becasue i am a southpaw alot of the moves the coaches are showing dont work on me so well because my stance is not like that demonstrated.
Some of my training partners, particularly other beginners, get frustrated because i am not in the stance the coach has just demonstrated. I hope i dont get a rep in the gym as being awkward to train with, no one will want to train with me.
Does anyone have any advice, similar problem, words of encouragement?
