Elbows are the best since I am such a small person. Not so much for ringfighting/sparring as it can seriously screw somebody up, but for self-defense purposes Muay Thai is pretty realistic. Of course you don't always want to clinch/elbow/knee as they can just knife, gang up, or pull some wrestling move on you. The Thai Clinch = Only usable in MT bouts. Don't attempt it against a seasoned wrestler or grappler.I would say Muay Thai is hard to find because of how violent it is, those fighters are efen crazy. I love MMA but I am not into getting my face all busted up by knees to the face.
