Thai kicks are devastating when done correctly. As we all know, Muay Thai kicks are done differently than other martial arts. The power is generated from the hips and the swinging of the arm and not from the bending of the knee like most Karate styles. Also the kicks are done with the shins and not the instep of the leg. I enjoy Muay Thai (Art of The Eight Limbs) and I consider it the best form of empty handed fighting there is.

Muay Thai is getting more popular these days because of MMA events shown on television. However the fans don't get to see true Muay Thai just a watered down version to fit into MMA tactics.

Most of my striking fundamentals are from Muay Thai and began with it. The round kicks are what sets Muay Thai apart from most martial arts. Out of all the kicks taught in Muay Thai, the round kick was the easiest for me to learn. Perhaps, there is a kickboxing style from Cambodia similar to Muay Thai called Pradal Suray. Only difference is that it is more technical and it prefers striking the head with the toes than the shin as well as the use of a double uppercut and jumping downward elbow strike.

Muay Thai is not only popular because of MMA, but also because of K-1. And Muay Thai is also very big in Holland and produced a lot of dominant Dutch kickboxers such as Ernesto Hoost, Peter Aerts, Alistair Overeem, etc.
