    Yep, pretty much. And that's all I have to say about that.

    As to aliveness, we cannot fully train safely the ultimate in hand to hand fighting. But Sanda offers much more effectiveness under limited rules (for safe training) than Qinna does, if you were to only train one or the other.
    I agree with you about aliveness and suggest not training one or the other, but everything as pertains to combat. Also, I will focus more on Sanda than Qinna because that will come into effect more frequently. Excluding it, though, would be a mistake. Especially when it comes to day-to-day self defense. But that, again, has more to do with psychology than anything else.

    Doesn't Sanda / Sanshou have more throwing than Muay Thai?

    Educate me if I am wrong.

    Sanda allows all throws, muay thai only allows upper body throws and sweeps (nothing over the hip, no reaching down to grab the legs, no hooking the leg around)

    Not necessary to educate you. You are correct. And Sanda fights take place on a Leitai (Raised platform). If you fall off, to my knowledge, you lose.

    ??? Qinna is just physics, mate. I feed on protein, amongst other things. Some would consider me to be a carnivore. Omnivore is a more correct term, though, as I also eat grains, fruits, and vegetables..

    Also, as far as I'm aware you get points toward a decision for throws in Sanda, whereas in MT it doesn't really count either way.

    Counts in the same way as a good punch or kick does -- in the judges eyes. But not as much.

    You mean that it is point sparring? In Sanda and MT how does one win? Is it point-based, knockdown + 10 seconds, or falling off the platform (Sanda)?

    Seeing as how I'm 192cm tall and 66-70kg I think that wouldn't work in my favour..
