This page is why you are so obviously wrong: http://www.singto.co.uk/Fighters/Fighters%20Page.htm
Just because Muay Thai is known to be brutal doesn't mean that they knock each others heads off every night! Did you ask about sparring days? That is what a lot of places do. Also it's pretty common to have a "fighters" program that is relatively separate from the main population.

"Kru" and "Ajarn" should not be warning flags. Those are the actual Thai titles given to instructors. Their are two main ways to look at what those titles actually mean.
METHOD 1 (as told to me by Thai people):
Kru = instructor (informal)
Ajarn = instructor (formal)
The difference in the formal and informal titles is simple. Its like being at college. Your individual instructors that you work with on a daily basis are your "kru's", and the dean/s of the campus are "ajarn/s".
METHOD 2 (as told to me by non-Thai's who have traveled in Thailand extensively)
Kru = junior instructor
Ajarn = senior instructor
In truth, this is still pretty similar to method 1. In this version, the title "Ajarn" has a little more to do with age & experience.
In my gym, I am the Kru (junior instructor) and Master Danny is the Ajarn (senior instructor).
Since we both work directly and closely with all of our students, the title "Kru" is appropriate for both of us. However, our other senior instructor, Master K, lives and coaches in another state. When our students have the opportunity to meet and train with Master K, the correct title would be "Ajarn" because the teacher-student bond has not really been formed between them.

Whoa, I didn't realise Khun Kao Charuad posted on bullshido! :)
Though it's an extremely belated thanks, many years ago you wrote a few articles on muay thai that eventually had me end up in a MMA gym with muay thai in the syllabus. Good articles they were! :D

Reason to train Muay Thai....
Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that kickboxing is commonly known as fighting while grappling simply isn't. - Osiris
