i chose to take tkd b/c that's what the best regarded instructor in my town teaches.

keep in mind all of us don't live in a larger town or city where there's a bunch of martial arts to pick from.

we learn boxing along with tkd. b/c my teacher boxed all thru his time in the military. i think this separates us from many tkd schools

Jesus Christ, how the f*ck can ANYONE think that Muay Thai is even close to similar levels?? TKD is no where near MT in terms of striking, want proof? How many PRIDE/UFC/K-1 HERO MMA Fighters use TKD over MT as a stand up style? I bet there's a very very VERY small few and for those, how many are successful? NONE!

khell has a little shameless behaviour in the past
tkd is good for learning kicks.the old school kick boxers had much better kicks then todays kick boxers because they all came from a traditional karate style like tkd etc.so the kicks they learned from traditional style were a good tool ,but only if the tools were mixed in with more practical styles like kick boxing etc.its like having a good jab and right cross, they are great tools but if you cant keep someone from taking you to the ground those tools are useless.i feel the same about tkd. by it self i dont think its a real self defence, but as a tool you can add it to a more practical style and i think it can be a good tool to ad to youre tool box. the few times ive seen axe kicks in mma or k1 its been pretty good and messed some people up. but those guys were incorperating that into kick thai boxing etc.

i agree completely, turning or aerial kicks might look nice but they're not very effective.

the people at my school frequently train with one of the other instructors, in freestyle and catch wrestling. because they also feel that TKD is a useful foundation, but needs augmentation if there's to be effective striking and takedown defense. they compete regularly however, and I don't because the fees charged for adults to compete are ridiculous.

someone told me muay thai fighters don't chamber up their kicks, why is that?

This is so utterly ridiculous that it can only be a troll.
i can admit that muay thai is much more effective in mma or what not but dont disrespect tkd all together you piece of shit maybe you should look more at the sport of tkd before you start saying its for 11 year old girls

actually some spinning kicks can be used, look at goerge st pierre. spinning back kick. he pulls it off every time. also an amazing guy from the old days, sugar foot peter cunningham trained with beny the jet.he he was a thai boxer who originally came from a traditional kicking style like tkd . that guy used to kill thai boxers. but he was a thai boxer with amazing tkd form. so again tkd can have some good tools but needs to be incorperated into a better fighting style like thai etc.

ps, i have no interest in tkd. im not a fan of it for fighting. i used to do it along time ago, and have moved on believe me. but i just want to be fair and say that some of the kicks they teach can be used in thai and mma. but only when its used by someone who also knows thai boxing / mma etc.
another example was a guy who knocked out maurice smith in k1 along time ago. he was a very good dutch /thai boxer and used an axe kick. maurice never saw it coming.

I took Tae Kwon do a long time ago but dropped out after I got my blue belt and have been doing Muay Thai ever since. I agree as well tae kwon do has limited use in the octagon. The only fighter I've seen that use it frequently in GSP and thats the Spinning Back Kick but it not always very effective.
