I am no more a "part of this community" than a anarchist who lives under dictatorship.
Nothing, if you like kickboxing better for what it is, despite clearly being an inferior sport, then that's ok. I just can't understand why people on here would spend so much of their time posting about muay thai and claim to love it, when they find so much fault in it and wish it was more like kickboxing. If you're a kickboxing fan, then go on being a kickboxing fan.
Stop bitching about how there isn't any English commentary in muay thai and the fighters have unpronounceable names and the fights aren't to your taste and how there generally isn't enough artifice. And these people always defend the fact that they give kickboxing way more attention by making bogus excuses about how difficult muay thai is to follow and how bad a job the promoters do, when they would clearly rather just watch kickboxing. If you don't believe me:
And last, but certainly not least, don't try to claim that what kickboxing promoters and athletes do is incredible, from a sporting perspective, when it isn't and disrespect muay thai fighters by not giving them the same treatment. Appreciate kickboxing for what it is, pure artifice, and don't try to pretend that it's something that it isn't. If you are going to give kickboxing dap, then compliment their ring girls or something.
For the record, I think a great fight in Muay Thai is better than a great fight in Kickboxing. Much of my points have been to why Kickboxing is more popular, not that I necessarily like one over the other. Both have possitives and negatives.
I reside in the grey area all by lonesome. I have just enough knowledge to be on the fringe of true muaythai hipsterism but not near enough to gain access to the inner sanctum
Ok i was drunk as shit when i wrote "have i "but lol i am not claiming that it's incredible, heck i barely watch japanese kickboxing. Maybe you should read each sentence again instead of saying i claim this or that
What I want to know is who is JT and what is his war?
but what's wrong stanning for takeru?he's great
he fights questionable competition and then gets lauded as the best in the world. You have guys like satanmuanglek who do exactly what he does only against top completion that are actual skilled and tested fighters but no one bothers to talk about him
Takeru is pure fun quit being babies. Such salty haters.
Nobody is stopping yall from hyping Satanmuanglek on Twitter...
Who the hell is Takeru fighting to be "great?"
If Satharnmuanglek were Japanese, K-1 would give him his own division and these same people would be creaming over him. But since he's Thai and actually fights opponents who are good, not many will bother to give him credit. Not even the "combat" fans.
Is Takeru's best win better than Satharnmuanglek's #25 win? Honestly
Life is always hard for Thai muay thai fighters. You have to go crush some cans abroad to be
recognised as great.
Samkor would have been a total unknown but because he went on a retirement tour in Japan,
toying against a Japanese legend on a way, he got a cult following to this day.
I'll have you know that, Takeru was awarded 2015's kickboxing and kickfighting fighter of the year, by no less an authority than, Steven "The Warman" Wright. If that isn't a mark of greatness, then I don't know what is.
That was about the beginning point where I started posting about how this Takeru business doesn't make sense. It's strange how quality of opposition doesn't matter at all in kickboxing when determining who is good, great, or the best.
Just a side question. As a matter of improving my right kick.
Who are the hardest right kickers in muay thai below 150lbs? Prefer fighters with available footage of padwork and bagwork.
Currently i follow singdam and superlek.
Might as well make it a clean sweep for Kiatmoo9 and throw in Rungnarai.
