I tried it for 2 weeks when i was in france and bored, didn't really get it in that time of course. Not kicking with the shin was too hard for my muscle memory to deal with. One thing i did like though was that they didn't do the 'thai march', in mt we get taught a non-mobile method of fighting just because the judges score it higher.
Can't comment on there being a bigger emphasis on kick counters or whatever, i was training with the new guys. Felt like a normal kickboxing gym but filled with french guys and a good number of hot french girls. So yeah, it gets a thumbs up.

What you say about hand striking is true in assaut,because most you get is two points for strike combination, and normally just one for punch. Head kick gets you four, so itīs no suprise. Our team returned from France, and told things begin to look more like semi-contact matches, where you hop forward firing kicks.
