Muay Thai is to striking what BJJ is to grappling in MMA. Muay Thai is perfect for MMA fighters because it teaches you [COLOR=red
Obviously you have little background in anything other than MT and running you mouth.
The OP has written a good article from his perspective.

I have the utmost respect for styles like Kyokishin. But someone coming into an all out standup fight with experience from that only will be at a great disadvantage because with the no punches to the head rule of KK he hasn´t been taught to use his hands like a Muay Thai fighter. Or his elbows and knees from the clinch for that matter.

Care to explain to me what you feel is wrong with that post?

1. Good article.
2. Glad to see the forum stomp on ignorant style bashing.
3. I've never seen a karateka fight with hands chambered by their hips. AFIK that's only for solo drills.
