    And if the leg in the air you can take it.

    I have seen hip throws in Thai boxing, I also am sure that I saw catching a kick and kicking out the standing leg as well.

    If nothing else we have seen that if you exclude a primary range (i.e stand up throws) from your training, you will get beaten at that range when and if your opponent can work there.

    Now the complex bit is that first, san shou is not a style, its a hard to group. The other complex bit is that I don't understand throws in thai boxing. I have seen thai bouts that looked just like san shou.

    Thai Boxing is regulated differently according to the organization. If you are in Thailand then you will see more throws. Europe is similar to Thailand. The U.S. is not really accustomed to refereeing Muay Thai bouts.

    A bout in Thailand will look like San Shou. With elbows, knees, and all around better striking of course, minus the hip throws and tackles.

    the former was illegal in the last muay thai event I fought in, but people still did it, the latter I count as a leg sweep

    yeah it depends where you are and who you are trained by. Watching Shane Chapmans latest fight over here against some canadian dude- Chapman is trained by guys from thailand. he spent most of the fight in the clinch kneeing the **** out of him then threw his ass to the ground so hard that the guy disloacted his shoulder. you dont really see that in america nor the k-1 which is the extent of "muay thai" that most people see. in thailand theyll let you get away with pretty much anything.

    JUST AN FYI FOR ALL OF YOU, TAJIQUANMAN WAS A DUPLICATE ACCOUNT FOR KIKKOMAN.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    Well, I assume kikkoman is willing to back up the challenges he made.
