    Kyokushin vs Muay Thai kicks

    Hey everyone in cyberspace-

    A quick question for those with experience. If one wanted to brush up on kicks how would training in kyokushin karate or Muay Thai compare?

    I traded kicks with a thai boxer last night, my legs kill. Do MT.

    Just realised how worthless the above was in relatiuon to the question.

    Muay thai will be kicking with the shin wheras Kyokushin will be kicking with the instep, does kyo have kata? I assume muay thai would be far more centred on sparring if kyo is at all like other froms of karate.

    either one should be fine. I'd pick the most convenient of the two (in terms of location, price, etc.)

    They do knee stikes in kyokushin as well correct? Really, they are in the same part of town and about the same price so other than wanting to know the technical diferences in technique....

    MT kicks tend to come straight, while Kyokushin kicks are usually chambered. Kyokushin has a few more kicks than MT (if I remember correctly, e.g.,axe kick) . Kyokushin does allow knee strikes (thighs, body, and head), however no clinching is allowed.

    Kyokushin kicks with the shin as well (most non-contact karate styles do kick with the instep). Kyokushin does have katas and kihon, however, there is a large emphasis is on conditioning, pad work, and sparring.

    Really it's going to come down to you deciding whether you think you look better in a gi or silky shorts. Competitions differ in that Kyokushin rules don't allow for clinching or punches to the head. Kicks to the head are allowed. The techniques are virtually identical. Watch as noted Kyokushin champ Ayato Kitajima demonstrates a kick.

    Is he doing a Kyokushin or a Muay Thai kick?



    The answer is "Yes"

    I was under the impression that Kyokushin implements both chambered/instep kicks and MT-style shin kicks.

    Here's a video with some kyokushin knockouts with knees (look for knee KOs after min. 3)

    Kid Miracleman:
    You're not really supposed to kick with the instep, especially for middle and low kicks the shin what you should kick with. For head kicks some of them are done with the instep (due mostly to lack of flexibility or someone moving their head away), although it is better if you can actually kick with your shin. However, even the shin kicks can also be chambered (and by chambered I mean the knee is raised before the actual hip rotation).
