Hi there DragonCombo
Which others are high on the list?
I did Shotokan for many years and the power we produced was much much more that in Thai Boxing, its just Shotokan to many is not practicle with its apparent long stance, I started Karate 35 years ago, but I myself enjoy Thai and its effectiveness.
As for striking, if Thai's were much bigger I think the world of mma would have changed, don't forget originally Muay Thai was to the death and from the battle feild, MMA & UFC is just a sport, how many other martial arts 'are' 'actually' to the death, so in principal and history I hope Muay Thai is higher than most.
How many martial arts over the past 200 years fought to the death? That would make a nice story.
Thanks for your reply.
