Hey that was a classic movie.

Bloodsport is still the best!

Yeah, it was a good movie, but not in its muay thai aspects. I do love Bloodsport though. Ive got that movie and watch it often.

Hard-core muay thai just isn't that photogenic on screen. Contrary to popular belief, most muay thai kicks are aimed below the waist in order to destroy, damage, aggravate, etc. the thighs and legs. The shin is used and the leg is swung like a battering ram repeatedly, and the idea is that if you take down the base or what holds the opponent up (i.e. the legs), then he or she will have nothing left (or whatever other assets they may have won't mean anything because their foundation is gone). Van Damme movies emphasize head-high kicking and splits, which gives people a false impression of the truth about brutal hard-core muay thai.

Of course, I am not a muay thai expert so I might be wrong in a few areas, hahaha.
