    hmm well ok no I was wrong (gasp.) But I've seen thai boxer's do the kick both ways (maybe they were the kyokushin turned MT ppl.)

    They're the same. Well that site I posted said they were apart from the way they move their hands basically...That's how I remember it.

    Not to forget MT kicks utilize a lot on twisting the waist~~~

    The Muay Thai kick is like the swinging of a baseball bat and that once it makes contact, the practioner is able to fire the kick in a rapid succession that is not deliverable with the Kyokushin Karate kick.

    I gather that this has something to do with the hip leading the kick as compared to KK's kick where the knee leads the kick .

    I think Kyokushin is more of a traditional karate kick, uses the instep.

    Theres a great vid of kyokushin in the downloads section. the high kyokushin kick is very deceptive. It comes up and drops down.
    Not the way that I was taught. Get it way up and bring it straight across, preferably over the top of a lazy block. :-)

    Kyokushin fighters also use their shins alot in kicking.

    Around a third of the way down is a good description for the high kicks of different styles.
