    How much grappling is there in Muay Thai. What kind of throws are allowed and what are the similarities to the grappling in San Shou? This is besides knees and elbows in the clinch

    TRADITIONAL Muay Thai (not the commonly seen sport MT) has joint locks and throws. You don't find much of it outside of Thailand. There are a few pple who still teach these technique but for the most part you will find SPORT MT.

    Clinching itself is grappling, to a degree.

    It varies school to school. Ive trained under 2 instructors, 1 taught mostly sport style, the one Im at now is about 1/2 and 1/2, we do some joint locks throws, whatever. My current instuctor is from Laos and he's fought a lot outside the ring, so some of the techniques are not intended for sport.

    Muay thai throws... One that I learned was like a freestyle wrestling throw that comes from the clinch. Almost like a head-and-arm throw but different.

    Even in sport muay thai, there's grappling, like Nih said, clinching. From the clinch, you can knee that guy and he'll be on the ground. I've seen people do this so hard in MMA sport tourneys that after the knee, they didn't need to grapple, that's how brutal the attack is.

    Hey MartialArtist:

    http://www.bullshido.us/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1437&FORUM_ID=2&CAT_ID= 8&Topic_Title=MA+on+the+street%3F%2E%2E%2E%2E% 2E%2E&Forum_Title=General+Discussion&which page=5

    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    in the usual MT there are still takedowns allowed, almost double leg takedowns/upperbody - I;ve seen it been done a few times.

    Some also use hip throws, which are don't think are allowed but I;ve seen them been used in lesser (than K1 etc) events.
    "Training = pain." - I said that.
