  1. What you are trying to imply is that Muay Thai is the best stndaup art.Now: Muay Thai is one of the most aggressive arts period, and it has good training, but the direct crushing power is not always a person’s goal: That’s why there’s so many attributes to describe fighting. If your opponent has better crushing power than you, you have to change your staretgy: It doesn’t mean they are more skilled than you on all fighting attributes, and if you think carefully, you might find a way past that.If you can break a baseball bat with your shin: Cool, break a leg while you’re at it if you want, but if someone can’t, you can’t insinuate that they are less of a fighter because of it. There’s thousands of strategies, and thousands of points on the body that can be attacked, and while hardness is usually a good method, a lot of people do well with circular striking, softer but still linear, and even the philosophy of striking hard on soft places, and soft on hard areas for example. Fighting in a ring is complex: Survival in the streets is even more complex.I’ve learned just a small bit of Muay Thai, but I don’t go either way in saying that it is the best or it is the worst. I know it’s a grand stndaup style (It’s seriously really good I wish I could train in it again to add to my stndaup experience) for self-defense and competition, but again: The training has a lot to do with how good it is.As for other disciplines: Not necessarily arts, but there’s many styles that adopt training that is at the same level, or that may exceed it. Seidokan and Kyokushin Karate, for example, both have Muay Thai elements within them (And they are great styles as well). On the other hand, Capoeira training isn’t directly based around fighting ( Martial Acrobatic Dance ), but it is arguably the most physical martial art.Traditonal Karate and Kung Fu classes sometimes adopt iron body (And/or Iron Palm Training), which on the basis of kicking may not be as good as desensitizing the nerves by kicking a tree (Or even a punching bag [I contend that the training of those arts that is intense usually deals with strong leg conditioning, but a more poweful hand conditioning: You don’t usually kick a makiwara board, but you CAN for example]), but with enough training, and the right person, they can stand up well. It heavily deals with the practitioner, but Muay Thai starts strong, and finishes strong. You may not find in that in some schools of other styles (Which may or may not be a bad thing, when you consider how different we all are) due to many things. You don’t see children and the elderly taking Muay Thai too often, but do you see that in San Shou Kung Fu (By the way: Another style that has the potential)? What about Karate? Muay Thai is a great stndaup art, and it has some of the best training, but no style is ultimate. And speaking of kicking:Jeet Kune Do kicking is based around the combination of the Baseball bat wave style of Muay Thai, and the more Japanese/Chinese/Korean style kicking. The combination of both elements exist on a level, so that you have the precision to hit a small area like a hammer. A baseball bat to the ribs: Great attack. A precise strike to the ribs: Also a great attack. You have to think about those things, and the intent of a person, before you make judgment calls. I’m personally more of a subduction man myself, but x person might want a knockout (Or even death ), y might want to do enough to escape a situation, and z may want to throw and/or apply a submission/joint lock/joint manipulation. There’s way too many variables to simply say one style beats the rest. We’re just flooded with some schools that don’t have the best training these days: That’s not style dependent.Don’t forget Muay Boran either! :p
