Please educate me about Japanese Muay Thai fighters

Or Japanese kickfighters in general that frequently fight under a ruleset that resembles FTR (elbows and stuff).

I'm curious about the Japanese scene and orgs for some time now, what rules they fight under and how high is their success rate in under MT rules.

I'm no expert, but from what I understand the Japanese kickboxing and muay thai scenes consist largely of the same fighters. The WBC muay thai and WMPF are fairly active in japan, sanctioning mostly national titles.
