I have trained jujitsu for a while now, but i just cant stop thinking about starting muay thai. I live in Bergen/Norway, and there are no muay thai clubs here. Muay thai is something i really want to train, and still continue training jujitsu. What should i do?

First off, why do you want to train in MT? IS it cause you saw ong bak and thought 'oh, thats cool, I'll give it a go'?
Or is there some particular reason for it?

Anyway, on your question, either find an MT class that doesnt clash with your ju-jitsu class or choose between the two. Easy (or not)

I think that Thailand is an interesting country, and i would like to learn more about it. Thats one of the reasons i would like to learn there martial art. And by the way, i have not seen Ong bak or whatever you call it. Thanks anyway...

The martial art of MT has many similarities with other striking arts. If you are more interested in the fighting side of things than the cultural aspects, then I would consider finding a kickboxing/ karate/ TKD club, there's bound to be one of them. There are ofcourse differences between MT and other styles, but you will understand MT far better once you have learned a striking art to a good level.

You may want to search for MMA gyms in Norway. Many of then use MT as the striking portion of their training. Some JKD schools do as well.
