"Choke: The fact that it is constently tested under full contact conditions and is therefore evolving and constantly adopting new techniques and fighting strategies that are shown ***in practice*** to be effective."
I've heard of other styles adding MT techniques and conditioning to their regiment. Though I don't really see foreign techniques and strategies being intergrated into Muay Thai. Maybe a little more emphisis on throws due to their rivalry with Sanda but Muay Thai seems to stick to their winning formula of heavy conditioning, powerful kicks, knees and elbows from the clinch and solid handwork. They pretty much have all the stand up ranges down.
Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's rising

To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking:
Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!

LOL, just because his instructor says some **** about meditation we have all these wise asses saying you should 'stay the hell away'. What the **** would it hurt to meditate and avoid injuring ur sparring partners?

MT punches can be/are fast.... but generally when you want to hurt somebody your pucnh will be a little slower - be as fats as you want - there's a chance it won't cause any damage.

One doesn't rule out the other .. I connected on quite a few fast punches, they did damage. It'just that if you have a 16oz glove on your fist and you're not used to it, it takes away a lot of your punching technique and speed.
I agree though, that my strongest punch is slower, but hits like a hammer :)
