How would my JJ and MT stack up to his TKD??? I am planning to take him on in 5 months time. Any tips???

dude TKD is for little fairy boys, your JJ and MT will rock his shit. if he is really good, you could have throuble with his stand-up, but get him to the ground and he's done.

honestly i dont think there are any fighters in mma that use TKD as a dominant art. this is because TKD is useless in mma. it has some badass kicks, but when it come down to a 160 lb. guy rushing you to the mats, TKD has nothing.

I'm sry but this Sandman205 guy sounds like a joke, how could you do 2 years of boxing and be scared of someone who's only done 8 months of TKD??? I'm just thrown off, Not to be rude or an ass but you prob should not even get into this becasue you will get whooped, just by how you talked about it I can tell your not too good at all with your boxing. You have zero confidence man....what have you been training for??

8 months beating 2 years??? really, even if you've had quite a while off from boxing I still think you should be able to beat some guy that so fresh with 8 months, seeing that he's prob only a yellow belt lol.....

Anyway keep training, get involved with MT, and BJJ and you'll do good, I'm not here to discourage you I was just pointing something out.

TKD is kind of a joke. Your 2 years in boxing should give you a better advantage in the fight than his 8 months in TKD.

Hes going to be using a lot of kicks. Grab a single leg or personally I would wait until he kicks and then immediately come forward with a right hook or an overhand right. In my experience they keep their hands lower than they should in TKD. Look for the takedown, gnp or submit him if you feel more comfortable there. Should be an easy fight for you.

the best thing about sparring a TKD guy: they always let their hands drop. my fav.

But one thing to make sure before you spar, is that you're both straight on rules. You don't want to use a takedown on him and have him whine about how you were unfair.

And be prepared. He knows your fighting styles, too. Though, he might just focus on the boxing thing. Make sure to move in close and not let him be able to kick you. Then pummel him.

oh. one more thing. video. post it when you're done. cheers.

Hits the nail on the head, TKD teaches you hold your hands by your waist leaving yourself wide open to all sorts of strikes.
He'll also come at you in a straight line so jab with your lead hand then quickly step to the side and throw a hook before grabbing hold of him for a takedown.

Also it's just sparring to it's not like you're gonna be trying to hurt each other and if he's better than you spar him again and again and learn as much as you can.

Um TKD sucks, so just give im an ol boxing one-two and knock his ass out while he winds up his tenth-dan-kata pose ready for a flying kick that never lands. Better yet, take him down, it should be a cake walk since TKD has no concept of take down defense, and proceed to pound him into the mat.

You can beat him today, just close the distance so that you have the advantage.

Tkd

A good fighter will not dismiss the value of TKD. TKD can be a great addition to a fighters arsenal, and it's great for balance and striking techniques. Of course, TKD on it's own will fail in MMA, but mix it with some boxing and JJ and you are good to go. The point of MMA is to not limit yourself to one style.

I also think TKD gets a bad rap because it is has always been a commonly tought martial art, so you will always have ALOT of shitty fighters. But yeah, TKD can be a good addition to your skills if you take it seriously. I'm currently training in both TKD & BJJ.

But yeah, combine your boxing background with JJ and you should be able to take this guy out.
