yes if you look up some of my other posts regarding my school's methods, you will see that they aren't conventional.

Anyway, most TKD schools don't teach you to put hip behind the blow. Some do. But, again, the vast majority neglect hip torque.

sorry swpthleg. That is what I love about Muay Thai, everything is about power and torque, how to cause the most damage. but I have seen some TKD black belts and the speed they show is unbelievable even in their kicks, HOLY CRAP

It is very encouraging to see that there is some acknowledgement of tkd as a legitimate fighting art, usually most people have the attitude that if it's not BJJ, muay thai, kempo, jeet kune do, judo, san shou or whatever then it's wussy and weak.

muay thai is superior to tkd sorry tkd people but it's true. muay thai originated from thailands warriors, they used muay thai to fight battles hand to hand combat, when a warrior would lose his weapon they needed to know how to fight without them this is where the skill of muay thai developed. winning battles with their bare hands

I don't think it's wussy or weak. I just don't find it to be as effective or useful as MT.

Oh I don't know about that I fought a tkd fighter and was humbled by his front kick and spinning back kick, not to mention his axe kick. plus is snap kicks are very hard to defend against because if he has speed you don't know where there gonna end up. geoge st. pierre and jason macdonald use tkd in their fights.

Really, I've never been humbled by an axe kick or a spinning back kick. The first gives me a nice single-leg slam, the second a suplex.

The snap kicks don't do as much damage and are just as easy to catch as any sort of thai kick.

GSP is actually a karate guy (as is Loiseau, who you didn't mention, but very well could have). I'm not sure about MacDonald's background.

Then again, Danny Abbadi is a TKD guy, so what representation they do have in the sport in terms of purists is, well, bad.

It's all done in combos, when I fought the guy he move forward with a front kick I don't your background but I'm not tkd however kickboxing champs like chuck norris used both of those kicks. anyway to the story in lunged at me with a powerful front side, then followed through with the spinning wheel kick chuck norris style. if you don't the power that is generated by a front side I invite you to attend a tkd session to feel its power. plus speed is power sure the snap kick maybe as easy as any other kick, just depends on the speed of the one throwing it.
