    Awesome - you can't hope for a better display of martial artistry than stun and run.
    Why oh why will Muay Thai not return my calls?? I have to get myself some of that

The borans are very different than the SPORT muay thai that most of you are glorifying; boran styles are far more aggressive in the sense that it wasn't made with rules in mind. Boran is to the 'edgy' new muay thai as street fighting is to boxing. Boxing is very effective in a street fight, but you aren't trained to avoid steel pipes, knifes, and elbows to the head. I'm not very partial to any martial art, because I get the good out of all that I can...all knowledge is good knowledge. The FACTS are the new muay thai that everyone here is defending has been cut down to a ring style fighting. In fact, for those of you that have said that you've read up on boran styles should obviously know that the moves became more and more illegal in money fights because players were getting dead. :-\ It's there, and anyone that's researched it will tell you the differences in the styles. I think it's pretty sad that modern day muay thai is really hopping around a ring throwing jabs and a few knees that wear both people out until someone gets so tired they slip to the ground. :(.

    I've known only a couple of people that proclaim to do the ART, so I'm not claiming to be an expert, however, if you don't know what the hell you're talking about since you obviously don't know the boran styles... then I suggest you stfu.

    I'm probably not going to post on this biased board full of boasters, so flame away since that's what most of you do best. I've noticed that most of you have video links for your 'fights'... I suggest you watch them yourself. Running around a ring doing the same thing that's always been done isn't an art, and you guys (and girls) don't really have the aggressiveness for a hard style. I actually didn't get pissed off watching the videos until I noticed idiotic misses due to a worn down fighter...do you think this has to do with the PADS, WASTED ENERGY, and the SMALL SQUARE RING? I'm probably a bit biased since my philosophy towards fighting is taking a person down as quickly as possible without any tippy toeing or dancing involved.

    Hmmn, you had me till the latest paragraphs.

    There isn't a huge difference between combat sports and combat in the streets (both empty hand, respectfully). And technically, anyone who is versed in combat sports would be MORE effective on the street due to the loss of regulations restricting him/her.

    Fact of the matter is combat athletes are infinitely more effective than those who don't partake within similar competitive training because they actually contain a fighting spirit to begin with. Not to mention, a strong basis foundation to expand on, i.e. ground fighting where I can gouge out your eyes or fish-hook your mouth better than you can (because I've trained to obtain better positioning than you have). Well that, plus endurance, a refined physique and strong physical conditioning to endure the rigors of fighting to begin with. It's only modern times and societal standards that instill regulations in order to prevent death and permanent damage to the athlete(s).

    I hope this isn't going to go the way of "Sports fighting is not martial arts" bullshit though. But I'm reading an old post, so maybe I'm late. Or maybe I'm too tired. Anyhow, I'm gonna finish up my Dips and get ready for some sparring for next weekend.
