    Maybe it's just my shitty striking background, but should he be pointing his toes as he lands the kick? His foot almost looks like it's at 90 deg. to his leg, no extension at all, is that normal for Muay Thai? I don't recall seeing the foot in that position in MT fights i've seen televised but it's been a while since I actually watched a whole fight.

    I'm pretty sure that you're supposed to stand firm when holding the shield, moving like the guy (his student?) in the clip is a bad habit.

    That cage is phenomenal may I just say.

    The way I understand it, the stiff legged kicks are a new addition to point fighting and are due to no other culprit than laziness. It's easier to toss straight legged kicks in bunches which gives a higher chance of getting points. It happens more in TKD events than anything. I've never seen any school or gym that purposefully teaches to throw kicks like that, but I've seen many competitors do it even though they don't kick like that in class.

    Im starting to suspect that the stiff leg kicks are taken straight from Ong Bak. Tony Jaa uses that combo.

    Does it matter if it works? Who's to know what his teacher told him it was?

    He's teaching it as more effective that regular MT. Yes it matters, considering how little is known about anscestoral MT, Im wondering who taught him these styles, or how the **** he knows Lerdrit, which is only taught to the Royal Thai Army.

    I love that trilogy, cheesy and inaccurate as it may be. Love it.
