    let me rephrase, Manu Ntoh TEACHES straight rights to the body for muay thai, so they must not be so bad. He teaches slipping a cross and throwing a cross to the body (he's been having me practice this quite a bit)

    obviously not. I didn't really read the thread other than people saying "body crosses are bad!!"

    It's late and I'm slightly irritable from the awful description I just read of my fight this past weekend.

    Well, if I had two dead bunnies, I'd give you one.

    If you leave your head wide open then it doesnt matter if you are punching the body or not. If you dont fix bad form you will always be open for getting kicked in the face.

    Everyone in this thread is a smelly pirate hooker.

    Body shots in MT come from your knees. Only fruit loops and ex-boxers throw body shots with thier hands in MT. If you insist on using your hands throw short shots and keep your posture upright or you are gonna be kneed in the head.

    Do you slam dunk the same way Michael Jordan does?

    Also, I bet that guy has no boxing experience huh?

    ::EDIT::
    Damn People making me clarify my trolls/exagerations.

    1) I know Manu and I know he has a pro-boxing record.

    2) Bodyshots with the knees are better for real MT rules whether you like it or not.

    3) As far as I know Hooks to the body are not a part of the traditional thai repetoire. They are adapted from boxing. That being said gloves are adapted from Boxing too so the depth of Influence is obviously pretty huge.

    There, you made me not respond like the lurking troll I want to be, happy!?

    Sure. I'm gonna totally rub it in your face when I KO someone with a straight right to the body in a muay thai match some day, however.

    I'm gonna totally laugh in your face when someone elbows your jaw off while you are tickling their belly. Oh wait, you won't ever fight in the context of which I am speaking.

    Real MT rules include elbows and Knees to the head. With those in play crosses to the body suddenly seem rather silly don't they?

    I nitpick about this because I don't think people differentiate MT from international rules kickboxing enough.
