No way. I agree it is very bad for a martial art(IMO) but many TKD fighters have strong kicking strength and that counts for something.

I agree that they kick very hard, but the way TKD fighters fight is unpractical in most situations. I've been there.

hell yeah there's a lot more to it. There's no point making umbrella statements like "it's horrendous" or "it's crap" b/c every school is different.

keep in mind, that emphasis on legs and kicking increases core strength and cardio which would definitely be an advantage in a street fight for example.

I agree with some but I'm going to respectfully disagree about "cardio in a street fight".

By no means am I saying having no wind is goiod, but street fights don't last long at all.

Most damage > Least time > with least risk to self

Cardio in a street fight is good. Running is always a viable option in self defense.

The fighter i spar with that generally causes me most problems is a guy that went to blackbelt in TKD and then moved over to Thai Boxing. He just has a way of firing his shots at you from any and every direction with absolute ease and definately takes a lot of getting used to if you've only ever sparred with thai boxers or kick boxers.

Cant rly say one martial is better than the other. However TKD does kinda have the old problem of it will impress your mum but not your opponent.
A gd TKD instructor can help a MT or MMA fighter with his kicks tho.
When sparring MT i like to occasionaly throw in a spinning back kick that a TKD instructor showed me in the gym.

Shouldnt try and say which is better can draw from the advantages of other arts to improve your area, and in mma should try and draw a little from everything.

The thing is it is hard to find a good instructor.
