    • I love dutch kickboxing and muay thai. I think these days a lot techniques are mixed together. Both have unique techniques which are useful. Maybe kickboxing cant be called muay thai cuz it doesnt have the elbows/knees and clinch. But I'd say if you enjoy training at your gym then keep training and watch a lot of thai vids too to keep your clinch skills high. Also lots of elbow and knee sparring. 
    • Dutch style is a kickboxing style that took its origin from Japanese Kickboxing with Kyokushin karate influence. Kickboxing isn't really Muay Thai. Doesn't mean it is garbage, or whatnot. It's just a different thing.
    • Long time martial arts practioner/teacher (karate/jujutsu/mma/kickboxing)   Health club cancelled my program about 4 years ago so I said "I quit teaching" and enrolled at my friends gym.   He calls what he does Dutch muay thai and I assumed that meant the style of muay thai done by the Dutch.   I had occasion to train at a gym recently who had to say "Dutch" muay thai is a sloppy perversion of Thai muay thai and cannot be considered "real" muay thai.   You all are practitioners of what I understand to be muay thai from Thailand so I've got to ask what are your views on Dutch muay thai:   Garbage done by the Dutch OR I don't care what it's called, if they hit me good for them if I stop them and hit them better for me.   I have a thick skin so I won't be insulted by anyone calling it garbage.   I like my friend's gym, his coaching style, the people training with me and I'm learning stuff.   He could call it Combat Ballet for all I care.

    • Thank you 🙂 I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters 😄😂💖 I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband 😉😄). I think I'll put the amulet on the rim right before the tail comes together. Or I'll wear it with a necklace and find another for the Mongkol.  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time 🤞🏻
    • I train at Pacific Ring Sports on Telegraph and 40th. What about you?
    • Amulets can go anywhere on the rim of the Mongkol, the only place I don't see them is on the tail. The hair can be put inside fabric and tied on to the Mongkol, or put in a fabric that gets integrated into the wrapping.  My mom's skirt was cut into long strips and twosted very tightly, then wrapped around the tube that's the shape of the Mongkol and glued into place.
    • This is so cool.  Where do you train? I leave on the Bay Area.  
    • Hello,  I made my own Mongkol as the gym I train at doesn't have a gym Mongkol to dress fighters with. I also bought an amulet that, long story short, feels like it was meant to be, but its bigger than I expected and covers my whole forehead ( not so much vanity concern, but more size ratio awkwardness) if placed in the front center of the Mongkol.   Is it allowed to place the amulet at the back or side of the Mongkol? Also I have some of my sons hair to put on my Mongkol,  but don't know where it's supposed to be placed as well if anyone knows.  Lastly, I saw Silvies YouTube on how she had her mom's skirt made into her monkol and it had a little axe amulet. I have a fabric I wore back when traveling, and now as a mom and muay thai fighter, I want to make it into a Mongkol for my son (whether he continues with the sport again the future or not, at least he would have a monkol made from his mom's fabric). Is there any way to see a tutorial on how they actually made the fabric Mongkol (it looked twisted in a certain way but I don't know how).  I have an arrow amulet I want to add on either my or my son's Mongkols, but again the sizing of it in comparison to the actual Mongkol seem uneven.  Anyways , any answers would be greatly appreciated.
