To me, it sounds like people are just ignorant.
People like muay thai because the practitioners are extremely well conditioned in terms of both stamina and toughness. And anyone that is not equally conditioned will wilt under a sustained attack.
Personally - unless you're planning on fighting in a ring - then Savate would be just fine for you - especially once you factor in the fact that you can wear shoes or boots to add to the damage from the kicks. Most of the folks on this board only think about MMA under rules regulated situations - and not real world anything goes situations.
