I've seen all sort of point systems, like where leg kicks are worth one, body kicks are worth two, and a kick to the head or one that is spinning or jumping is worth 3.
At the tournaments I hold, once you are 13 you simply fight a one minute round and each of the three judges awards a point to person they thought won based on clean, effective striking, effective agression, and ring control.

Some people really need to learn how a muay thai roundhouse kick works and stop insisting that everything starts and ends in a chambered position, or their students and themselves will be limiting the power of their kicks tremendously.
