    OK let me rephrase that.

    It's ironic that in a NHB match between two MA's (TKD and KK) that do not appear to empasize strikes to the head should be resolved by a strike to the head.

    I think it is time for a KK highlight real where the fighters are wearing gloves.

    Acting according to the ruleset put forth is not all that ironic.

    I don't get the refing in that, I spent most of the time watching that trying to figure out what the ref was up to, he's all over the place.

    Cool clip BTW, some mean elbows.

    I don't know if this is the place, if not please excuse me. I've always been curious about the origin of the characteristic gedan mawashigeri from the kyokushinkai karatekas and the MT fighters. Who copied whom?, or are they entirely different and I'm just unable to see it?. Also, didn't that kick have a distinguishing name?.

    They don't speak japanese in Thailand. Anyway, that's the round kick right? The kyokushin and muay thai round kicks are similar, but the technique is different. Also, muay thai is older than Kyokushin SO THERE.

    I know that muay thai is much older than kyokushin, but since techniques evolve in time and because I wasn't sure how different the techniques were I wanted to ask. Can you be a little more specific, how different??, they look pretty much alike to my untrained eye, they look very different from the regular karate kick though. Excuse me if this sounds Japanese-centered, I do not have much contact with other countries martial arts.

    Muay thai kicks require more follow through and hip rotation than kyokushin kicks. Kyokushin kicks tend to lead more with the leg, whereas muay thai kicks lead more with the hip. If you miss a muay thai round kick you pretty much have to twirl around, and if you're doing a kyokushin round kick you're not as committed, so you don't.
