    Sorry, the search button doesn't seem to be working for my right now...I was wondering if any of you could give me a brief rundown on similarities and differences between san shou and muay thai? Khun Khao recommended a good SS school and I think I'm gonna check it out when I head back to school. Thanks everyone.

    Both allow punches anywhere and kicks anywhere, and some level of clinching. But the similarities end there.

    Typically, Muay Thai allows elbows and knees, and clinching to support said elbows and knees.

    Typically, San Shou disallows elbows and knees but does allow various throws and takedowns.


    I'm not experienced in SanShou so i'm just repeating what I've found myself. But both are good martial arts.

    More specifically...

    In Sanshou you get to clinch only for several seconds. You either throw or the ref breaks you up. Typically 3-5 seconds depending on the tournament. Sanshou tournaments often have no ropes around the ring. If you get pushed out it's 3 point. TKO rules can apply for getting pushed out of the ring. Many Sanshou tounaments allow kicks to the leg but do not award points for them. MT also allows a certain about of throws but does not reward for them as heavily as sanshou.

    Cung Lee's tournament did last weekend in San Jose. Headshots were only dissalowed for begginers. The only time they stopped the action in any category was after a throw to determine if it was worth 1,2 or 3 points.

    takedown where you both go down but you are on top and in control = 1 point (like a single leg)
    he goes down but you remain standing = 2 points (most sweeps, a knockdown or any reaping throw from judo)
    his feet go in the air as he goes down for a clean throw = 3 points (like a hip toss or where you just pick the guy up and throw him on his ass)

    San Shou is tight and its easily the best Full contact ma to be involved with if you don't plan to be a proffesional fighter. Its also good if you do want to go pro.
