    Lu Tze, no worries, my fault for posting a derail comment, and fwiw, I thought your original post was really funny.

    MMAMickey and Ronin, thank you very much for the information, very interesting.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    A lot of sanctioning bodies in Europe and America don't allow elbows for a lot of none professional bouts, maybe that's what he meant?

    Edit: No worries here mate, sometimes it's good to be made to look an ass, makes you think more and post less.

    He said his style didn't use them because of the fact that a lot of tournaments didn't allow them.

    back to Pens question of dutch vs thai styles.

    Compare the previous video of Ramon with Buakaw, notice his boxing skills.

    Ramon Dekkers has good hands and is Dutch, however, his style is actually much closer to Thai style than Dutch style muaythai. His stance is very square, his footwork is gradual and stalking and he throws fast hard head and body kicks. This kind of makes sense since he spent many years competing in Thailand and probably did a lot of training with Thai coaches.

    Tyrone Spong and Andy Souwer are two good examples of Dutch muaythai. I don't know of any MMA fighters that use the Thai style muaythai.

    Dude. Everyone knows it's just china. All asians are chinese. They all look the same, eat the same food and come from the same giant chunk of land.

    I don't know if Andy Souwer is a good example since he comes from shoot boxing. I'd imagine Peter Aerts and Remy Bonjasky to be prime examples of Dutch style Muay Thai
