No offense taken. I have been there 2 1/2 years and 95% of the time the kicks have been roundhouse kick and push kick only. The focus on side kicks was a rare thing, maybe we did it a year or two ago before? The hook/spinning kicks entirely new. Usually it is exactly the sort of thing you mention. I'm with you that these things don't seem to be usual Muay Thai, but I don't have a lot of experience in MT outside of this school. I had a Kali instructor that showed me some moves, 1 hr at a Dan Inosanto seminar, and seeing a little bit in the Netherlands. Ok, also I have watched a few instructional videos, youtubes, and that great font of where all my original Muay Thai knowledge came from - JCVDs Kickboxer!
