You’re still don’t get it. You can go to a Sanda school, and learn it, without ever having set foot in a Kung Fu school.
Or, as is more common outside China, you can go to a Kung Fu school, and practice Sanda as part of your regular sparring. I fall into the latter, as organised Sanda simply isn’t a thing in Australia. So yes, I train for Sanda rules.
LOOOLLLLLLL. Sanda explicitly does NOT kick Thai style, at least for the roundhouse, because because Thai roundhouses are easier to grab. Remember that unlike MT, all throws are legal, hence in Sanda the kicks are generally snappier to minimise the chance of them being grabbed.
Pure Sanda uses boxing for hands, but those who train traditional stuff end up using longer punches and deeper stances. You can often tell the difference between a pure Sanda fighter and someone who is coming in from KF.
Re traditional stuff being applied for Sanda, I’ll just let some of my elders explain.

But Wasted, this looks just like boxing and Muay Thai!!!
No. Fucking. Shit. When you go back to the basics, everything looks similar to everything else.
So…you’re saying I don’t use mitts, speedballs or heavy bags? BWAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA
Sanda doesn’t wear Thai shorts specifically, at least, it doesn’t call for them in their regulations. People just buy Thai shorts out of convenience. By your logic, all MMA fighters or kickboxers wear Muay Thai shorts, which would also be wrong.
LOL STFU. You asked for kung fu techniques, and I gave them to you. I never claimed anything was specific to Kung Fu. I only ever claimed the Chinese have been doing exactly the same shit as everyone else.
You’re pissed because you were expecting some high flying movie bullshit, but the reality is that KF looks just like a combat sport in practice.
Only if said Kung Fu fighter doesn’t train to fight.
