    FC Kickboxing (For MT Guys)

    Hello.

    I am having my first Muay Thai fight next saturday (K-1 rules basically). But I also want to compete in Full Contact Kickboxing as well. (just like Rob Kaman, Ernesto Hoost, Stan Longinidis)

    But some fellow MT guys say that its retarded that I would want to compete in such a watered down ruleset. What do other Muay Thai practioners think about compete in FC Rules.

    In spite of what some other web-sites would have you believe, we here at Bullshido.net welcome you, KFighter, with open arms and hope that you will share with us your unique experiences and ideas on the martial arts.... so that we may then make fun of those experiences and ideas.

    i must say the idea of FC rules has never appealed to me, but thats because im a clinch fighter. i cant kick high and have crap punches so FC would equal ownage for me.

    My coach was a former world muay thai champ, but held some amatuer titles in fc rules. (besides that he was a golden gloves champ) so all areas are covered. Punching, kicking (high/low), clinch work, and knees.

    I want to compete in both MT and FC.

    Do it if you want to but I'm with Alex I HATE FC rules. Counting is not part of fighting.

    If you want to fight under that ruleset go for it. If the fellow MT guys don't like the rules, they are free to sit it out. Do what you want to do.

    If you are trying to get your outside techniques better, I would say kickboxing can probably help with that. I would stick with the MT though....

    Do both, but expect to be handicapped in the one that differs most from your fight style.

    I hate FC/Kontact Karate/American Kickboxing ruleset. And as was said above, counting is ghey. Anytime they have to count kicks to make sure the opponents are kicking, it's just a toughman competition. Boring, useless, and not my idea of something to waste my time on.

    Now, I can say that even though I hated being handicapped at all (I train with elbows, but I was forced to fight without them in Oriental, sometimes called International, ruleset), my amateur fights were fun. But I'd have had way more fun in K-1 matches, and might have gone 5-0 instead of 4-1, since my amateur loss was to another MT fighter who had more experience in the Oriental ruleset and really put the heat on me with knees. But it was judges decision, so I always like to think I mighta had a better chance with my elbows. Bleh, woulda, coulda, shoulda. Don't do FC, IMO. It's disappointing.
