    In the San Shou rules fight between Buakaw and Sun Tao, Buakaw throws some nice sidekicks. This is the only fighter I can name who fits the bill.

    fight starts around 4:47

    This is an extremely vague question. It should be pretty apparent that Buakaw was throwing side kicks because he was screwing around with the sanshou fighter.

    Kaoklai throws a push kick that's kind of like a cross between a push kick and a side kick. Seanchai throws a lot of funky kicks that you don't generally see Thai boxers throw so it's possible he was throwing side kicks.

    Of course there are a zillion different thai fighters with different styles, so it could be anyone. If you were ever so slightly more descriptive maybe someone could possibly answer your question.

    He is definitely playing around, but he's obviously not making it up as he goes along. The side kick is a legit technique in MT, but it's only taught in certain schools, and rarely used. I'm sure you knew that already, but I wanted to be clear about what I meant.

    The side kick isn't exactly a complicated technique. I can throw side kicks too, doesn't mean I was taught them or train them.

    Fair enough, but it IS a MT technique, albeit an obscure one.

    I can't remember the proper Thai name of the technique, but I'll post it if I do.

    From Wikipedia (I KNOW!)

    "...It is worth noting that a side kick is performed differently in Muay Thai than the traditional side kick of other martial arts. In Muay Thai, a side kick is executed by first raising the knee of the leg that is going to kick in order to convince the opponent that the executor is going to perform a teep or front kick. The hips are then shifted to the side to the more traditional side kick position for the kick itself. The "fake-out" almost always precedes the kick in Muay Thai technique."

    Not really sure why you're pointing this out as I've never disputed it. In light of this, I recommend you check out the stickies. I posted a video series that covers most techniques you'd ever see a Thai boxer using.
