    My impression of KK fighters and Shotokan fighters (back in the 80's when it was decent) are much more linearised in footwork than MT.
    Surely you mean Anderson Silva...

    Anderson silva's style reflects a mixture western boxing and muay thai, with a little TKD flare. He doesn't stand like a thai boxer, he doesn't square up like a thai boxer. Surely you can see the difference.

    Don't forget Bas Rutten, he started as Muay Thai kickboxer then practiced Kyokushin, which he always credits as the base of his striking skills, although he doesn't hurt to mention his Muay Thai experiance has helped him.



    Now excuse me while I shout out in Rutten fanboy manner:

    LIVER SHOT FOR EPIC WIN!

    Is your impression based on experience?

    I am not talking about cutting angles so much as hit and retreat.

    When I do Muay Thai, there's evasiveness and movement, but they always stress you want to be the one pressing forward.

    it's not a judgement just an observation.

    For example the way MT checks kicks is different than Karate. My Karate has always been to be get out of the way of the kick with speedy footwork.

    Sometimes this is a good thing to do sometimes it's bad.
