yea TKD has one strong point it is GREAT for learning proper form when it comes to kicking and punching, ANd I find it fun making a strict TKD guy tap at, one of my trainers is a 3rd degree in Tang Soo Do and I have made him tap out once or twice

I just think the point of all of this is that this is Mixed martial arts and if you think one style is the best then you're going to get destroyed. Even as a striker, if you want to take tkd to learn proper form, take something else like Muay-thai along side that to figure out where it comes from and how it works.

I do this with my jiu-jitsu and I'm sure that this method works for striking too.

It's all about practical application. You have to figure out consistancies and what is just for show. It's the same in grappling in boxing. Minimalism has always been the key to my fights. I don't throw a punch unless I think it's going to do some damage, I don't shoot in unless I think I'm going to knock him down.

The key too all martial arts is the secrets that are behind it. The secrets are the little things that make each move important. Look beyond the physical form and into what it does in a fight. This is really important, especially in arts that only stress the form it is easy to over look what matters for MMArtists.

From what i gather you are mixing 2 different sports. They may be similar but Street fighting has few rules and can be anything goes where as MMA has rules as well as a mix of alot of MA.
You are never to old you are only as young as you feel. Also alot of good british cage fighters are within the age range of 35 - 49.

Wow, that's surprising that the British fighters can stay in the business so long, or do they just start older. That's pretty cool.

I am mixing 2 sports, but the point is that for both of them you need to have a large body of knowledge and martial arts experience. That's what matters.

from what I understand in cage and street fighting type of stuff where there are no rules alot of it is not how skilled you are but ho crafty, where that has its advantages it is overshadowed heavily by a fighter with lots of training

One of the reasons they stay in so long is that they have kept the fitness in check and have had years of training and conditioning. And to the second point cage fighting is technical and tactical as you have to study your opponent whereas street fighting is not so technical. And finishes really quickly, cage fighting does not.

What im saying is if a street fighter went against a MMAist on his terms he would win whereas if the situation was turned the MMAist would not have as greater chance. Its like mixing hockey ant football.

Keep forgetting different sports in different cities oops. British hockey is different to American. Ok American football to soccer makes a bit more sense. Or i think so.
