Muay Thai question
I've seen part of a ma reunion last on tv and the first match showed was between an Italian guy called something like Stradella and a Swiss guy of Rumenian origins.

How many organizations are there in Muay Thai? I never listen to tv commentators since usually they are just journalists that have little knowledge of the sport they are dealing with, but this supposed "world champion" was really, REALLY bad.
And something in the rules looked odd. Catching the opponent's foot after a kick was ruled foul. What's the deal? I thought it was legittimate.
