Number one...Don't watch a Tony Jaa movie if you want answers regarding Muay Thai. While he uses some Muay Thai elements in his fighting, he also uses Tae Kwon Do, and a lot of acrobatics.

There are two different styles of Thai boxing, Muay Thai and Muay Boran. Muay Thai is the more commonly known version and more sport than Muay Boran. Muay Boran is strictly for self-defense so the moves consist not only of strikes, but breaks and throws like you'd find in Judo, Aikido, and Hap Ki Do, for example.

A majority of Muay Thai practicioners actually start learning Western style boxing and are then introduced to the kicking/kneeing aspects after their hands and, of course, their footwork have improved. Most fighters from Thailand actually prefer to rely on their legs more than their hands, but it's not an easy thing to do, especially with how many good boxers there are out there.

Depending on the school you go to the focus can differ heavily as the whether or not you end up stressing boxing, kicking, or knees. If you're in the States, elbows are illegal in competition so practicing them sometimes doesn't do much good. One thing I can say is that amateur fighters rely heavily on their hands and throwing leg kicks. Higher kicks and knees usually come after the fighter has gained the experience to throw them without putting themselves at risk.

Of all the martial arts I've practiced, Muay Thai is definitely the toughest on your legs (well, possibly equal to Kyokushin Karate) in that the conditioning is rough. Watch any fight in Thailand and you'll see fighters throw kicks with reckless abandon, disregarding whatever they make contact with (elbows, knees, etc.). If you've mainly practiced TMA (traditional martial arts) be prepared to change your mentality as the training is much different than what you'll find at most martial art schools.

Does anyone know any colleges that focus on martial arts?

watch the movie ong bak or infact any movie from tony jaa. muay thai originates in thailand and is also called the sacred 8 limbs. you should be able to find local clubs wherever you live as it is rapidly growing in popularity

Does any body know the difference between Olympic tae kwon do and point sparing?

Stratigies before fight if its possible for you to get a fight film of your opponent thats the only way for you to learn his strenght and weaknesses then pactice your defence against him . start with frontal and round house kicks then quick clinch then knees
on the sides then elbows on the temple always push your opponent a soon as your done executing what you want to do and push him hard then always put your hands up your chins side to avoid those deadly spinning back fist or elbows always move side to side dont stay in front of your opponent
