    Maybe not as a universal law, but the odds are pretty good to make it a rule of thumb.

    You develop punching by going to a qualified trainer. any other answer would be a guess.

    Minutae --- TKD blows. The UCF fight last night - apparently stephen bonnar is a TKD blackbelt. He couldn't/didn't land or defend kicks. Draw your own conclusions. anyway, Kid was correct - if you want the kicking you want the MT. As you may be aware, kicking is not an element of boxing.

    To specifically answer your questions...
    For better hand skills, keeping in mind I already do Taekwondo, would it be wiser to add kickboxing or boxing?

    I'm just worrried if I take pure boxing, I won't learn how to use hands and feet at the same time?
    1) Boxing has better hand skills. That's what we do. That's all we do.

    2) You would learn boxing footwork and movement. very effective, very specialized. You ever see a boxing match? That's what you get. That's all you get.

    plyometric push-ups
    standing rows
    military cleans
    handstand and walking (personal favorite, good for functional strength)

    Using a falling step instead a waist twist or hip twist.

    My vote is also for boxing, if you want to learn to punch hard.

    MT is good, but in my experience, a lot of the focus of MT is on kicking. Your punching will probably improve, but not to the extent that it would if you box.

    If you start boxing, you'll do an unbelieveable amount of punching, and then punch some more.

    Yeh, do both. Boxing gyms can be pretty inexpensive so it shouldn't be too much to afford if you can afford a kickboxing school.

    Boxing. Focus on one thing at a time, and get proficient at it. Not that I don't like Muay Thai, but you'll end up splitting time between kicks, kick defense, clench work, knees, etc.

    Try going to a boxing gym for 3-6 months regularly. (Keep going if you like it.) Your punches will look immensely better, and you'll have a solid skillset that you can always fall back on. Then, pursue Muay Thai, Kyokushin, or whatever other styles float your boat.

    beyond punches, boxing has immensely improved my balance, footwork and ring movement
