That's easy: I've never heard of any muay Thai training groundwork in any substantial fashion.

comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
@SahanDeSilva "Grapple" could mean any one of at least a twenty very different attacks. Is the jiujitsiero going for a low single leg, or a jumping guard pull after establishing a collar-and-elbow clinch, or an Imanari roll into a heel hook, or an over-under clinch followed by uchimata? None of those are remotely similar, and the defenses vary greatly no matter what art you train. You need to be more specific than "grapple".

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
@Sardathrion It read to me that he was talking about disabling the leg in tournament (thus, the belt categories). In any case, having a numb leg for the duration of a fight is nowhere near a broken bone, dislocated joint, or being killed. You're being ridiculous. Don't downvote just because you don't like hard sparring.

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
I'm rather surprised that this question is getting downvotes. "When is a good time to land [specific technique]" is a great question. And the point of kicks is to inflict damage to the opponent. I'm confused as to how these are even at issue.

comment Do pins in judo have to be standard pins?
Aha! That makes a lot of sense. Don't stress the exactness of a pin, just hold that squirming jerk down. :)

@SteveWeigand I've never heard of any method except the kind you describe.

comment Are there any effective Kung Fu fighters in MMA?
@ElMynx Kennedy & Guo describe the Chinese Army coming to a similar conclusion in Chinese Martial Arts Training Manuals. Boxing doesn't have all the answers, but the basics of boxing and wrestling have proven themselves useful to all stylists.
