    No they don't. You can't "revert" to something you can't do. you may think it bears resemlances to kickboxing, but it isn't kickboxing in any way. If I get into the ring and start throwing tornado and butterfly kicks, am I reverting to kung fu?

    Even though I've never had a piano lesson, I can still play "Chopsticks." Just because I've never had a lesson doesn't mean I'm not playing the piano, or even not playing "Chopsticks." My quality of play is a different matter alltogether.

    Besides, it's not as if "kickboxing" is some peculiar style or anything. If anything, it's the barest form of any striking art. So, if you've ever trained in striking with kicks, you've got some kickboxing skills.

    Kung Fu involves kicking, puncking, locking, and throwing. Kickboxing doesn't allow locking and throwing.

    BS. The mechanics of the thai roundhouse are quite intricate. In addition, there's defensive strategy, differing footwork, etc. MT has throws. so, looking it it your way, I can punch, kick, throw and say I'm doing bare bones longfist.

    and thai boxing does allows sweeps and throws. just not "big" throws, like over the hip throws. whether or not they are scored will depend on the organization.

    I don't consider Thai Boxing and kick boxing the same thing, but I could be wrong. Are MT rules that same as your standard Kickboxing match rules?

    As long as you were relaxed while doing it, and didn't hop around, I suppose you could. When it comes down to it, there are only so many different ways you can fight.

    I agree. The same thing applies though. kung fu that's not using it's principles doesn't equal kickboxing. No to the rules question.

    True. Good fighting transcends style.
