    But Im a gaylord troll, and the mods are just biding their time before they hit me into next year with the ban hammer
    Lol!

    That's the problem with semi contact Points score more to the head. You can get a spin kick heel right on the nose, fully padded up!
    Muay Thai strikes more to the leg or abdoms. Knees and elbows come in later rounds and probably as a counter attack..

    muay thai doesnt strike more to the leg, body kicks are the usual bread and butter of a proper thai camp
    knees and elbows dont have any restriction, knees often happen from the start, elbows just depend on the fighters...
    knees arent just counters either - figthers like Diesel Noi, Noppart Keatkhamtom, Sakadao are aggressive walk forward knee fighters.... they steam in, clinching and kneeing as their main tactic...

    sorry but you dont sound like you really have much of an understanding of muay thai.....

    kickboxing (im using the generic term to define the long pants, moon boots and kicks above the waist only) is a bit pointless for mma, most pro kickboxing consists of a boxing contest with the odd flicky kick or side kick etc etc or underpowered body kick- might as well just do normal boxing. better off doing a bit of boxing and some proper hard karate (i.e knockdown like Kyokushinkai) if there arent any thai / k1 clubs... than above the waist padded flicky kicking

    a k1 style (ie low kicks, knees etc) or muay thai much better IMO (as then you learn proper clinching not japanese anti-thai rules !) - but you need to find a club thats good at one or the other. far too many instructers who really dont have much of a clue on k1 or muay thai.

    To be fair, I've trained at a couple of places and haven't been knee'd or elbow'd in the face while sparring. That's just bad juju. Infact, the worst I ever get in thai sparring is a dead as fuck leg.

    I fear you underestimate my clumsyness!!

    In all fairness Thai is probably more suited to me as I can hardly kick anyone in the head anyway, still i have no intentions of actually fighting anyway mostly just sparing and keeping the belly away, mind you never say never.

    I've taken 10x more elbows and knees in bjj. My face seems to attract them. Always take it on my brow so for the next week my top eyelid is black and it looks like I'm wearing eye-shadow.
