    • Savate
    I think each style has its benefits. With American kickboxing, I like the karate-style kicks. As far as Muay Thai is concerned, I like the option of adding knees and elbows -- and they got some amazing roundhouse kicks too. Savate is cool because you're trained to use shoes.

    I've never figured out why Muay Thai allows knees and elbows but forbids shoes. Oh well, I guess that's just one of those things.
    I'm in the same boat mate. Having done some savate in the past when doing JKD I'm hoping to start MT and use that for my kicking range. The idea of not using the foot in MT I imagine is down to the fact its done barefoot traditionally and so kicking full force with the foot would damage the many bones there, where as a conditioned shin is a safer bet (for the person throwing it). I suppose it all boils down to what you are training for. Good luck in the training though I'd be intrested to hear how you get on mate whatever you choose.

    Gotcha. Chi works exactly like electricity. The rubber soles of shoes inhibit the transfer.
