    its K1, so i think the fighters have some quality behind them, instead of the usual showing with one fighter of the 2 being a poor representative. usual excuse you hear anyway from style proponents on why their rep is getting his tush kicked.

    no doubt. As long as you ignore the fact that the tkd guy trained specifically to fight K1 style and knew how to punch and outweighed the other dude by 100lbs and towered over him by atleast 2 feet.

    well, if you clicked the link to part 2, you'd see kaoklai won by decision.

    i mean tkd is a decent martial art as long as you dont learn it in the US. like many people have experienced there are to many mcdojos floating around

    So did the TKD guy though, I think he was baiting the kick. He tried to make him pay everytime he lifted his leg.

    I work with a guy who teaches it, and wow. I think he's given me the worst impression of a TKD blackbelt, because according to him no one could beat him. He never shows up to the Sunday practice where we spar though. I've never seen it practiced outside of North America so maybe there is a brighter side to my ignorance of that sport. Although I do like some of their kicks.

    the only tma that has really caught on and hasnt been mcdojotized in the us is judo. Freaking judo is hardcore. TKD and karate are getting their asses whooped over here reputation wise because random guys are just making karate systems.

    heres some good tkd videos. This one is my fav imo because the one kick that these guys have is the spinning hook kick. That is the one hitter quiter of tkd
