Log in to Reply AOPrinciple March 23, 2013 And they say MMA is dangerous and violent. These are kids throwing bare knuckle punches and axe kicks, lol! Log in to Reply ustabeluke March 23, 2013 So rabbit punches” (kick in the case) are legal in Karate? I didn’t think they were legal in any combat sport because of how dangerous they are. (??) >>A rabbit punch is a blow to the neck or to the base of the skull. It is considered especially dangerous because it can damage the cervical vertebrae and subsequently the spinal cord, which may lead to serious spinal cord injury or even death<< Log in to Reply Chicago March 23, 2013 HEY BRUNO!

Bruno: here you go.http://www.mmatko.com/tuf-fighter-adam-cella-chokes-jon-jones-into-tapping-during-grappling-challenge/ Log in to Reply Twana March 23, 2013 That is Kyokushin Karate of Sosai Mas Oyama…. Osu Log in to Reply shocktime March 23, 2013 WTF? Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick March 23, 2013 That was a sick KO.I’m waiting for the haters to say:”I would just soccer kick him,or I would just grab him etc.” @ustabeluke It is illegal but just like boxing and kickboxing,if you turn your head to the side and get hit behind the head,it’s your fault not the guy throwing the strike. Log in to Reply Stan March 23, 2013 I don’t know if you can call that a kick to the back of the head. The guy turned his head into it, so it would (should) have been a legal strike, even in MMA. Log in to Reply Sunfish Hero March 23, 2013 Isn’t that just a bicycle kick? Like, the kick soccer players use all the time? Either way, that was rad as hell. Log in to Reply INANEBIGNATE March 23, 2013 sweet KO at first I thought they were just doing body shots bc they were only hitting in the body and had no gloves or head gear on. Log in to Reply rightsaysfred March 23, 2013 No, in full-contact karate you can knee and kick to the head – just no punches. I used to use a variation of that kick in which the leading leg (his left leg, in this instance) is used to strike. If you miss, which I did most of the time, you look really stupid. Even when you land it, it rarely does shit.

Log in to Reply Adonis March 23, 2013 just like the Anderson Silva front kick, everyones going to be doing the rolling axe haymaker cartwheel kick. Log in to Reply FailSonnen March 23, 2013 Its funny how no one in the UFC is talented enough to land these. Even GSP. These kicks are par for the course in Kyokushin. I’ve seen them done so many times. Nothing new. Just the way he twists it at the end of the kick is a bit new.. And for those that say: “well the MMA fighter needs to worry about the ground n pound and grappling/wrestling if he misses” Yeah well don’t miss, a hole… Log in to Reply tobes March 23, 2013 at INANEBIGNATE – i think in this style of Karate you’re not supposed to hit to the head, at least evidently not with punches. The kick might have been intended for the shoulder. Or head kicks might be allowed, but not intended to KO. you can see immediately as the kicker stands up he puts his hand down in a sign of ‘unintended foul’ as he is looking at someone or something(presumably the judges table) I think in this case the kicker might win, but potentially he might also ‘lose’ because of a DQ This young guy clearly has athletic talent. The kick he attempts but narrowly misses at 6 seconds is also impressive. Wonderboy Thompson is another awesome example of Karate kickboxing efficacy, but Matt Brown exposed his ground game deficiency. Once Thompson develops a good sprawl he will be more relevant in the division. Log in to Reply jakelo March 23, 2013 walk away like a sir.

How did this happen?!? Log in to Reply c hill March 23, 2013 cool. and it worked. enuff said Log in to Reply Twana March 23, 2013 Looks like not many people here know about kyokushin karate rules. This is a kyokushin match and it is a perfect legal hit. In kyokushin you can use any kick to the head but can’t punch face and it is all full contact. Hit to kill… It is perfectly OK…full hit..full contact. There are other crazy kicks too..search YouTube. OSU. Log in to Reply hond2dciv March 23, 2013 If I ever get in a fight on full mats I will remember to do that kick… Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick March 24, 2013 @tobes No that’s how real full contact karate works.Body punches and kicks are legal everywhere(except the obvious illegal places).It’s just that pussified North America prefers to have chestguard,shin pads,gloves,and a motorcycle helmet.And you can’t hit the face with any power,and you can never punch the face.I got from withe to purple belt from ***** karate when I was 8 to 12.Total scam.You had to PAY to get a new belt and I had had like 8 belts in between.When I started boxing I thought I was a beast but 90% of what I learned was useless.Then I started kickboxing with a coach who’s base is karate,but is a really good boxer and muay thai fighter.He teaches real karate classes and really good kicking and timing punch techniques for kickboxing.I don’t do much of the karate classes because it’s pretty brutal on the fists.If all the karate classes were like that one in North America,there probably would be 90% less black belts and there would probably be 2-3 real 8 years old black belts. Log in to Reply JO March 24, 2013 Kyokushin Rules: 1 point for a full knock down, .5 for a quick knock down. No hands to the head/neck. No grabbing at all. So body shots and head kicks look like the order of the day. Sounds pretty brutal. Remind me not to poke fun at karate wimps anymore, at least not the Kyokushin tourney types.
