What an ignorant comment, that is false and just not intelligent. Kickboxing is a direct "cousin" of Muay Thai and depending on what organization we are talking about Kickboxing does allow elbows and knees futhermore why can't someone learn kickboxing and learn knee and elbow strikes??? Just beacuse someone trains in Muay Thai does not mean they will be a better striker than a "kickboxer" just look at Lidell and Cro Cop...enough said

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
