comment Which is the best way for learning Wing Chun?
You can't study an art if there's no school nearby. For your situation I would recommend boxing. Boxing is good stuff.

comment How to avoid recoiling when someone pushes you?
-1 This oversimplified "science" is really unhelpful. What damage is a push going to do? Why not improve on the mass part of the momentum equation? How harmful do you imagine moving towards a push is going to be--wouldn't that just mean taking a firm stance and taking the collision? Isn't that kind of common in martial art?

comment Western Boxing Styles and their Features
The Philly shell is a real thing, and I'm sure that different lineages have different practices, and I love this question, but I don't know anything about the different boxing "styles". I think that because boxing doesn't name or conceptualize their subvariations the same way that (for instance) karate does, it's less of a recognized thing.

comment How do I increase endurance levels to cope with Muay Thai demands?
@coeus I've found yoga quite helpful for judo and kickboxing. Longer yoga classes, particularly when you're new to the practice, can take a toll on your recovery demands (which would otherwise be devoted to MT), but if you're inflexible then you need to do something. One option is to develop a short daily morning yoga practice, since flexibility responds best to frequency.

@JuannStrauss World champion in muay Thai? I'd be interested to see any of the research.

-1 I'd advise against cycling, since as a repetitive partial-range-of-motion exercise it tends to decrease flexibility, particularly in the hamstrings, which is a bad idea for MT. It's also quite strange to say that running only works the shins and calves. But neither running nor bicycling is a proper strength or conditioning exercise for MT. Neither is sport-specific, nor are they effective for general S&C. What's called for is either sport-specific conditioning or a general strength training program.

@coeus 4+ isn't necessary, it's just the point at which you see rapid progress. The point is to maximize your in-class muay thai workouts. Can you do something at home? Yes, but I'd focus on a progressive strength and mobility program first, and only then supplement with a MT home-drilling workout.
