Why can't I find full muay thai rules list from anywhere? Does this mean that everything that isn't disallowed in the rules is legal?

I can lift my opponent from the waist?
I can try to throw my opponent off the ring?
I can do savate style side kicks to the leg?
I can stomp on my opponents legs?

My coach who has lots of experience said that doing these things is something you will get warned by the referee. Why the fuck can't they put these in the rules then?

>I can lift my opponent from the waist?
No, no grappling in MT
>I can try to throw my opponent off the ring?
With a kick if it's strong enough, yes.
>I can do savate style side kicks to the leg?
All kicks are ok.
>I can stomp on my opponents legs?
You can try...and fail.

You can sort of grapple. When in clinch you twist to one side while tripping them with one of your feet.
It's kind of annoying when buakaw prolongs fights by throwing his opponent twenty times instead of just punching them in the face and getting it over with.

Because the rules change from federation to federation and from promotion to promotion. There are no unified, world Muay Thai rules just as there are no unified world Kickboxing rules. Some rulesets allow sweeps, some rulesets work pretty much like Sanda without leg grabs unless it comes from catching a kick, and some rulesets are K-1 with elbows.

assuming you're referring to K-1 fights, that's mostly because clinching is limited to a few seconds and can't be prolonged by exchanging knees
at least it's what i understand

That depends on the federation, OP. Muay Thai is just the fighting style, it has no rules.
The UFC is a federation with its own rules, you can fight using Muay Thai but you can also pik opponents from the waist.

Stop talking shit. Muay Thai may not focus on the things that OP asked about, but there are no "muay thai" rules.
All there is are the rules which each individual federation/organization/association agreed on.
