It's not really about recommending specialised WODs. The basic principle, and the sheer beauty, of CrossFit is that the workouts are designed to improve all aspects of fitness, that there are no workouts that will improve Muy Thai specifically.

Martial artists adopt CrossFit becuase they need to be stronger and faster and more flexible and more co-ordinated and have more endurance and .....
CrossFit delivers that by constantly changing the type of exercise you're doing, as randomly as possible, just like a fight, where you never know what's coming.

The best way to adopt that philosophy is to do the WODs as they come up on the main page. If your location in the world permits, do them on the day, but over at CrossFitBrandX Jeff Martin (both links wfs) usually recommends following a few days or even a week behind so that you have time to ask questions about the WOD format and plan how to work your way around limitations in the equipment or resources available to you.

It's quite a different way to train than you're going to find in most gyms and it can take a while to get the urge to train for specialisation out of your system.

Double and triple backed. I know that MT and BJJ entail vastly different movements, but I think the principle that Craig described hits the nail on the head. Martial Arts (especially styles that rely heavily on sparring, such as BJJ and MT) and fights have a tendency to put you in awkward positions and require you to be strong at angles and in movements that aren't necessarily covered in training. Crossfit works well for me because it covers the fitness and strength gaps that training misses.
