I think it could be placed high in one of the most effective striking art.

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.

On the battlefield they would not have restricted themselves to Muay Thai techniques alone. Since Muay Thai bouts are relatively rarely to the death anymore, It's fighters are about as dangerous as the strikers in UFC, most of whom train Muay Thai anyways...

muay thai is good but everything comes down to what you are training for. you could be the best striker in the world but a submission wrestler will most likely beat you if you do not train for everything all around. i dont think you can classify one fighting style as the greatest. and if we were then you have to look at the beggining of ufc. when Brazilian Jiu Jitsu won all the time. best striking technique would be learning all of them. i would say that would be the smartest plan of action.
