It's almost disrespectful to both disciplines to say that either one is better. At the end of the day fellas, it's not the wrench, it's the hand turning it.
This. Abolutely perfect.

I read through this thread before, a couple times before in fact. But I can't recall right this second all of the points presented, but I'll try to recall what I can.

I'm sorry OP, I don't know of the specific encounter you're referring to. I wish I did, I'd be very curious to know more about it. The fact is though, it's not uncommon for that to happen, fighters going to other countries to fight different style artists. The problem arises in the home turf advantage.

Next I'll mention that I'm of the mindset that it's that artist, not the art.

There's so much Muay Thai-lovin' goin' on in this thread though, I think I'll have to put down a little bit in favor of kung fu.

Bao Li Gao is a Chinese Sanshou fighter who has beaten Thai fighters in Bangkok. He also has a MMA record of 4-0 in Art of War, with his arts since he started MMA including Sanshou, Shuai Jiao, and BJJ.

Cung Le most people probably know. Solid MMA record in a US org', undefeated in Sanshou - he's out there reppin' kung fu. 'Nough said.

I'm not trying to say kung fu trumps Thai boxing, I'm just hoping I can point out that this argument isn't as one sided as many of the Muay Thai boys are trying to make it out to be.

Its definatly not one sided, some of those shoaling monks look lethal haha. But the fighter comes into it too, I'm sure if cung le grew up doing muay thai he would whoop some keester too... But a good point dude, very good point!

Hi guys. First please excuse my English usage if I type something wrong in grammar.
Please let me introduce myself.
I'm Thai and I have been living here for 28years.
I have studied Thai martial art systems for several years.
(Thai weapon and Ancient Muay Thai)

Many chinese Kung fu fighters have come to Thailand to fight with Muay Thai fighter for 100 years ago. ( In the time of 5th Jakri Dynasty)

There are many records of these "encounters".

Chinese fighters fought bravely with Thai boxers. But they lose.

But you know what? Some said that one of Muay Thai boxer
died from "internal injury" after winning the chinese fighter
by knock out a few days later.

So I don't think we can say one art is superior than another.

Both Muay Thai and some style of Kung fu are developed to use in War.

And for your information. Ancient Muay Thai is so much different from what you see on TV. Many Techniques
are not allowed in comepetion.

And I believe Kung fu too. You can't perform many "deadly" move to your opponent today.
