Hello. I am interested in either learning Pencak Silat or Muay Thai. I am especially interested in Pencak Silat because of the culture behind it and I think it may focus more on technique rather than strength and conditioning (I may be wrong) I have been searching for an answer to this question all over the internet, but couldn't find it anywhere. Which art will make you be able to fight with confidence the quickest. I heard Muay Thai takes about 6 months before you will be fighting with confidence in your skills. However there are some arts that take a long time before you can actually apply it in real life. Some many years. Which is quicker muay thai or silat and how long will you generally have to train in silat before you are a good fighter that can handle yourself in the streets with confidence. Honestly, if it takes too long maybe I will learn silat after I have mastered Muay Thai and Judo. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
