comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
@Vass Slipping is turning and moving laterally out of the way of a punch, the bob+weave is ducking under and coming back up: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_styles_and_technique#Defense

comment How to deal with unfair judges
I solved a similar problem by quitting karate and competing in tournaments where such corrupt judging is harder. In my case it was judo and BJJ, but boxing and kickboxing, where you actually hit, knock out, and knock down the opponent, would work too. I don't see how asking the judge is going to make anything better.

comment Overcoming fear/anxiousness and dealing with pain
"instead of having us beginners widly flailing our arms and legs in a frenzy/panic, not knowing what to do" —- isn't this exactly what your question suggests their approach has in fact caused? 'Learning' footwork and kicking technique for a year without sparring (or only sparring with an extremely limited set of techniques, like chain punches/bong sau/lap sau) is like 'learning' to swim by moving your arms standing next to the pool.

comment Is it advisable to try to catch a low kick to the thigh in Muay Thai?
Throwing a punch from the opposite side of a kick catch is a bread-and-butter san shou technique. It can cause an easy knockdown if it's done quickly enough that the kicker doesn't have time to re-establish balance. It's even in the forms! :D This video shows a rather classic kick catch->punch-> trip sequence.

Jack Slack's recent article about kick catches doesn't address low kicks but might be good related reading.
