    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Im gonna say Muay Thai. You have stated that you are a shodan at karate so if you are considering another style i think it would be best to move on. I know there is a ton to learn even after reaching the coveted black belt but if you arent dead set on learning more then it would be good to move to another art. You also said that your kicks were strong and your punches a little weak but if you do Muay Thai im sure you can get some punching practive in as well. It has been said that punches are more or less set ups for kicks but if your kicks are stronger then you should be using them as much as possible anyway. Since you will most likely get better conditioning from kickboxing then from boxing you should go with it and do punching on your own. All you need is a heavy bag and some pointers from the guide to punching on this site. If you can get some punching instruction from an actual person but in the long run id say that the conditioning you get from kickboxing would be worth more if you can straighten out ounching problems on your own.

    In karate it's normally taught the first two knuckles.

    Is this somehow relevent to the thread, or did you just throw it in?

    Voted for Muay Thai as I do that and it'd be daft to pick anything else :)

    For:
    o Uncompromising conditioning - will take you to your limit
    o Absence of kata etc, all time is spent on solid fighting training
    o Only contact competitions. No distractions.
    o Technically, hands can be as good as boxing. Kicks are very powerful. Use of knees and elbows.Use of all ranges including the clinch, which ties in very well with judo.
    o When you casually drop the term "Thai boxing" it scares the **** out of everyone else. That's half the self defense right there!
    o No "secret" stuff, no "ki", no "deadly" techniques. You'll never have to ask your instructor how to use a technique on the street, only to get the answer "this not for the street. on the street, eyegouge"
    o Everyone's fighting is proven on the ring. Nobody talks **** in MT.
    o No belts, no belt testing. You're either a junior, a senior, or a fighter.

    I rate boxing as well for the uncompromising use of hands. However it doesn't give you as many options (ie ranges, strikes).

    hope this helps!

    Also I hit with as many knuckles as I can manage. All 10, if I can :)

    Basically I throw a solid wall of punch at your face. Whichever knuckle hits first wins! The rest will not be far behind
