    At this point, I will choose the dutch style over TKD. This thread cleared up some misconceptions I had about Dutch Muay Thai.

    and if you want a vid of some dutch MT in action-


    Dekkers was one of the first guys to go over to thailand and beat them at their own game (partly because he was one of the few people who could get into the super light weight classes that people in thailand actually care about, wheni went to a stadium there i think the heaviest fight on the cards was 120 pounds, most were 100 pounds or under)

    look up 'Joe Rogan TaeKwonDo' on youtube he shows GSP a few TKD kicks and on some other vids says there are some useful KO kicks in TKD you can use in MMA simply because the other guy won't recognize what you are setting up

    Very fucking impressive. This makes me even more exited for my first MT / Kickbox training this sunday. Even his frontkicks are awesome... Jeeez. Thnx for this vid!

    The school I linked a few posts above does have instructors who have Muay Thai fighting experience, but they have losing records and they call it dutch Muay Thai. The head instructor, Freddie, learned the style they teach from champion kickboxer and two time UFC champion Maurice Smith, but has no fighting experience of his own.
    A website can only tell you so much. The fighter's records doesn't necessarily mean the instruction at the school is bad. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. The only way to really know if you'll get anything out of it is to contact them and schedule a trial class or two. I did that with a local Kyokushin dojo here in Oregon and I couldn't be happier. Good luck!
