    So it's in Netherlands more common muay thai or kickboxing training? Someone call it muay thai someone kickboxing so how is it? I think it's more kickboxing oriented because they mainly compete under kickboxing rules. And what gyms are can be considered muay thai and what kickboxing? I know for Mike's gym they said they train for K1/Glory rules.

    It's kickboxing and most of the fights are under K-1 rules.

    However up until 2005/6/7 all of the fights were under modified muay thai rules. Clinching, sweeping, throwing, kneeing, etc. but without elbows.

    And do Netherlands have true muay thai gyms? I mean like in Thailand or when you go for muay thai it's always combinations oriented with low kicks?

    Yes there is 1 pure MT gym in Utrecht and 1 in Rotterdam that i am sure of.

    Don't ask me about the quality though, never been there, nor do i know anybody that trains there
