Enlighten Me

I'm very new to training in martial arts...I've been kickboxing for about a year now. My question is what are the differences between competitive kickboxing and competitive Muay Thai?

I've watched both (but not a lot), but having never competed, I'm very curious.

Anyone here competed in both?

Well it's your lucky day! Prepare your brain to be extremely enlightened, brown belt!

Did you know that there are such things as Google and Wikipedia?

There are a few different types. There's muay thai, which is knees, kicks, elbows, and punches, and a few trips and throws too. Then you have K1 rules, where you can throw everything but you can't clinch. I'm kind of a tall drink of water so I'm better at dutch style kickboxing, which is essentially throwing punch combos and finishing with a leg kick as the opponent withdraws. The straight muay thai style is well suited for smaller guys who like to fight closer.

Thanks no fat chicks. This is the ask the fighters forum so I'm asking for people who've fought in both or chosen one over the other.
