Log in to Reply colonel May 10, 2013 so when would one need to kick something that high? Log in to Reply petepetro May 10, 2013 im about to take a dump…if I roll out the TP can you kick through it for me Log in to Reply jkdchris May 10, 2013 Street fight techniques against the ‘Harlem Globetrotters’! Check out joe rogan teaching GSP his fave TKD kick ! Log in to Reply MMABESTPICKS May 10, 2013 You all don’t get it. It’s the discipline, the athleticism, the skills, the confidence, the mind-body awareness. It’s called Martial Arts. Log in to Reply jdogg May 10, 2013 I guess somebody forgot to tell Machida TKD is not effective. Log in to Reply shocktime May 10, 2013 Cmon guys the bottom line is can you do it? 98% of use he probably not. That’s some impressive stuff. Tae Kwon Do may not be best for fighting, but that dudes explosive athleticism can not be denied. Log in to Reply GreatKing May 10, 2013 He has great agility and accuracy. I like this demonstration very much. Thanks for the post Bruno! P.S. I took TKD for 15 years and got into a fight with a jujitsu black belt. Guess what? I won! I punched him in the throat and then kicked him in the nuts. TKD is awesome! Log in to Reply Shanks May 10, 2013 Everyone is always so quick to judge the effectiveness of these techniques in a fighting scenario rather then just looking at it from a purely athletic/martial arts enthusiast point of view. There are lots of techniques, in ALL martial arts, that are less effective then others. The ****in guy jumped off people to do a back flip kick breaking a board that was about 10 feet high. Appreciate it for what it is… that shit is impressive. Log in to Reply greengiant May 10, 2013 I know some techniques of any discipline can be used in MMA but not all. Log in to Reply FailSonnen May 10, 2013 TKD is easy to make fun of but people forget that Benson Henderson, and Anthony Pettis both come from TKD backgrounds. The showtime kick is prime TKD Log in to Reply FailSonnen May 10, 2013 Also Anderson Silva of course Log in to Reply Yoplait May 10, 2013 I took TKD for 65 years and fought Blanka from Street Fighter and guess what? I stomped his green ass and sent him home to Brazil crying. Kicked right through that electric shock bs. Log in to Reply ultimate fighter May 10, 2013 TKD for pussies real men just close their eyes and swing their arms at each other until some1 falls down thats real martial arts Log in to Reply icolater May 10, 2013 Tony Jaa would be impressed by this, amazing stuff. Log in to Reply jay May 10, 2013 “Boards don’t hit back” Log in to Reply Coutura May 10, 2013 It reminds me of street fighter one bonus level ..taek kuang dou is like cheer leaders jumping and screeming i think is gay the only thing good about it its flexing your legs Log in to Reply Jo May 10, 2013 I had a lot of fun with Tae Kwon Do. It’s a cool sport, fun to watch and do. Then one day I was sparring with one of the black belts. He kicked me in the face, an illegal move, driving my teeth through my lip. He and his buddies just laughed and walked around like they were badass while I bled all over my uniform. That’s when I realized these guys mistook a TKD match and sparring with real fighting. It’s cool to be proud to be good at something, but acting tough about it while some guy bleeds from a foul? So I just grabbed the idiot, held him down, bled on him and gave him raccoon eyes. Where you punch them in the eyes so they have 2 black eyes. I didn’t hit him hard, but it took a few hits. I was not allowed back. It was still fun though. Log in to Reply Jo May 10, 2013 Also while at a TKD tournament guys were breaking boards. Acting all strong or whatever. A power lifter friend of mine grew annoyed because the boards looked so flimsy. So in between board breaks on the stage he walked up and grabbed a board. He flexed it with his hands and it shattered into 3 or 4 pieces. He grabbed another and did the same thing. It was hilarious. The crowd was cheering him on. He was asked to leave. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick May 10, 2013 @ultimate fighter Yeah footwork is for fags. Log in to Reply Roe Jogan May 10, 2013 TKD is a good way to get your ass kicked in a real fight. But, to do what these guys can do takes considerable training and sure is pretty. The TKD fighter that wins in MMA is the exception not the rule. Log in to Reply Joel Alfred Larsson May 10, 2013 I love traditional martial arts, even though I do MMA now. Log in to Reply Tekken vidya gayme player May 10, 2013 I hate when people pick Hwoarang in Tekken. He’s a cheap son of a bitch to fight against! Log in to Reply mma made easy May 10, 2013 ^psh, I dunno, the Eddie’s capoera is worse. Log in to Reply djdjdj May 10, 2013 Gymnastics Log in to Reply d.b.s.homie515 May 10, 2013 ****in ninjas!!!! Log in to Reply mmafan11 May 10, 2013 Try that shyte against someone 6.5 295+lbs see what happens. Log in to Reply jeffb May 10, 2013 @jdogg: Machida is a Shotokan KARATE black belt. Far as I know he does not practice TKD. He also trains sumo and BJJ. Maybe I missed something? Log in to Reply jeffb May 11, 2013 my original post got pulled down? seriously? I attempted (in a very nice way, I might add) to school jdogg on the fact that Machida is a shotokan karate black belt and does not train TKD. I guess ignorance is supposed to reign supreme here??? Log in to Reply jeffb May 11, 2013 ha! oops! my comment suddenly reappeared after my 2nd post. my bad, Bruno, or whoever does the mod stuff. I’m done commenting for the night. BTW, bad ass kicks, but like many said, “boards don’t hit back”, and I can’t imagine having to kick someone 8-12 feet off the ground, but it does look cool as hell. Love me some Tony Jaa (no homo). Log in to Reply coutura May 11, 2013 why do they need to put their hands back like that when braking the board gay Log in to Reply Joe May 11, 2013 I think the last kick was the same one Pettis used on Henderson Log in to Reply kdaddy May 12, 2013 I hate how everyone commented on tkd and not the video, fyi everyone cung le is a tkd fighter. Seriously how many key board warriors do i need to hear about? Also if you took a ma and lost like kung fu or tkd maybe you werent very good, you ever think about that? didnt we say all these same things about karate when mma first came out then bam machida happens and now its ok to do karate but when a great tkd video is posted lets rag on it. The children that come on to this website and type what ever that comes to mind. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
