I can assure you that the self-defense and tkd sparring that we do would serve us well in a street fight. I'm also pretty sure that there's nobody around here who has Rickson Gracie skills.
Oh. I wasn't just talking about around here. I was speaking about generally, the entire world of TKD.

Glad to see that you're not nuts and I'm sorry if I offended you. Like I said, you're instructor is probably a great fighter and a great instructor, but I don't find Muay Thai particularly combat-valuable.
