That's because the majority of the dojos that teach it, are aimed for young kids or adults looking to get into shape and not there to really get into the art. Look for a place that teaches Kyokushin Karate and tell me if you think it's still watered down.

I know that's what I want. It is full-contact karate that allows knees and elbows but the only striking to the head are kicks (sometimes fists and elbows/knees are allowed to the head if you have your blackbelt).

I know what Kyokushin Karate is. I was saying "That's what you want." meaning that's what everybody should do meaning I think Kyokushin Karate good. Just as good as Muay Thai even.

I figured you knew what it was since you were saying what you said, I was explaining since most people haven't really heard about it, so I cut out the need for people going "What's Kyokushin Karate?".

Thank you! Someone gets what I've been trying to point out all along.

What everyone seems to forget about most TMAs is that many of their roots lie in a point of history where people still fought hand-to-hand to survive. Modern TMAs are very far removed in the way that they were originally taught, because (let's be honest) you aren't going to be worried about invaders coming into your village and having to fight them off with swords or spears. The firearm revolutionized warfare. I'm going to have to do some research, but I plan on starting to post up some comparisons of Modern TMA's to their inceptional roots. It would prove interesting.

thromback: Just use what works for you. It would be a waste and a shame to throw away 3 years of training. I know you'll be able to find something that will work in MT from TKD, and vice-versa.

No doubt, I still use the kicks. I've been still hitting with the foot when I want to. Many of the kicks I can still do just I've been striking with my shins, thanks for all of the help.

i've always consider the difference in MT and TKD as this:

TKD teaches a person to be evasive with their kicks, controlling distance and not allowing an opponent inside their comfort zone.

MT teaches to break, wear down, and destroy their opponents. With superior conditioning, it usually comes out on top in the mma world.
