    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Strikes that defeat Muay Thai!

    Ok, what are some techniques that are?

    A. Legal to use in the ring
    B. Not a part of normal Muay Thai curriculum
    C. Would work against a decent Thai boxer

    Axe kick ~ I'll start with the Axe kick. The Axe kick has been used effectively in the ring by K-1 champion Andy Hug and vet Mirco "Cro Cop" Filipovic.

    Front Snap Kick ~ Semmy Schilt uses a front snap kick pretty effectively in K-1.

    Brazilian Kick ~ Francisco Filho & Glaube Feitosa

    I'm really looking for some "outside of the box" type **** that would work in the ring, catch people off guard, and make for a nasty highlight reel. I think the Capoiera "evade high kick counter to hand stand high kick" could work with the proper timing. We saw the Afri-jutsu guy use that same concept with the "low spinning sweep the leg" move. I think the TKD "hopping fake kick left to hop kick right" move might work.

    What else we got? I will try to find some clips to go with my less than perfect move descriptions.

    Spinning back-kick to the knee ala Andy Hug
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    Nice, I've actually tried that one. I think it's worth adding to the list.

    SBK to the knee? That sounds dirty.

    Anyway, this is a kick I haven't seen in muay thai:
    http://www.savateaustralia.com/skills/low_blow/htm

    Also, the foot stomp to the instep during the clinch.

    A while back, there was a thread about this kind of kick where you hack the back of the heel into the outside thigh. Its not one I really use.

    The roundhouse kick with the toe or ball of foot can be used against someone only used to hitting with the shin. When I throw my leg kicks with the shin and they start getting checked, I sometimes switch to the toe because it gets around their shield and hits with a small point. This is probably not a good idea without shoes http://www.savateaustralia.com/skills/fouette/htm

    Side kicks? I'm guessing there's some reason you don't see them in muay thai (the square stance prevents it, I guess). Back in the day I loved blasting people with the Bruce Lee stepping behind side kick, but now I just find it too easy to see coming.

    I'd probably throw my change in with the spin back kick and side thrust kick. If you watch some Muay Thai vs San Da fights (I've noticed that youtube mainly carries the ones where the San Da fighter wins), you should see some good uses of those kicks.

    Lead straight punch as an interception? the savate chasse kick after he leg kicks you? Hook punches when you have the positional advantage.

    lead hand uppercut. It's probably not going to knock anybody out, but it might land.
