I come from a karate background but I am transitioning to Muay Thai. I am not quitting karate just yet.

I've noticed that Muay Thai's sparring is much more realistic (and has actual contact!), but if you're sparring confined to a karate ruleset (emphasis on speed, not full contact) Muay Thai's shorter distance moves and more committed strikes seem to be outpaced and too close distance/too slow?

is this your experience?
