save money and live in Thailand for a year or two. That's what I am planning to do and it seems a lot of westerners are.

here you go some youtubes mainly on clinch.
Notice how they drill and train. You probably want to do them same as they do.

For fun or sport?

But yeah, the biggest promotions are all kickboxing and don't allow elbows. Lion Fight is the only one I know of that is muay thai

To my MT bros, do your gyms use prajiets for grading/ranking? Mine just started to use them and I'm not sure how I feel. Being awarded things based on hard work is nice, but I know colored ranking has never been traditional Muay Thai.

>Muay thai dojo
Please don't refer to a Muay Thai gym as a dojo.
The OP should probably try training Muay Thai before making the commitment of going to Thailand. As you for, make sure you do you have your priories in order and do your research, you don't want to end up at some tourist trap like Tiger.

OP, you shouldn't try to learn Muay Thai by yourself by watching videos or reading tutorials or whatever. All you're going to end up doing is teaching yourself bad habits that will set you back if you ever actually start learning Muay Thai. Online tutorials can be a useful supplement for somebody who is already established in their training (e.g somebody who has already fought) but for new trainees there's no replacement for a qualified coach.

I've only ever trained in Thailand where they don't give out gradings/rankings at the gym. How does your gym's grading system work?

I've always been wondering, is pretending to be hurt allowed? I've seen some GIFS/WEMBs of people pretending they're hurt, only to advance on the un-suspecting opponent when he gets closer. Is this allowed?

god no

Similar to BJJ, a combination of time spent in the gym and skills learned and applied. There will be monthly or bi-monthly testings, and of course you test for the next rank up. At the lower levels you're basically proving you know the basics (jabs, low kicks, etc.) and have low-level cardio and can do a simple combo. As you progress you have to display your skills in sparring, the cardio sections of the test become more intense, you have to demonstrate that you can hold pads properly, and the combos become much more advanced and numerous.

I know that feel..

But it's better to build up your skills at the gym for the moment, you never know what it's good for.

I want to add something:
Most beginners fail with elbows because they think they have to put a lot of power in it, which results in a very stiff and slow movement.

Actually ellbows are a very "soft" technique, you just roll your shoulder while performing a round, flowing movement with your ellbow.

Ellbows are also called "The knifes of Muay Thai" because you can easily make someone bleed. And that's basicaly the feeling, the slash of a knife. The power comes naturally.
