Talking Newbie has a question (JJ vs TKD)

Hey guys what up? I have a friend who has been training TKD for about 8 months now. He keeps on nagging me for a sparring session and stuff and I keep on declining because he might kick my ass. I have been involved in boxing before for about 2 years and going to start training a Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai combination.

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

To be honest I think your 2 years of boxing would be enough to out-do his 8 months of TKD. TKD is very heavy with its kicks, and as long as that doesn't throw off your rhythm too much, he probably wont have a great answer for you punching skills.

After training Muay Thai for awhile, brushing up on your kicks, checks, etc. I think you'll easily out match him unless he's some striking phenom.

I don't want to start anything, and I respect all martial arts. But I'd put both boxing, and Muay Thai above TKD on my the list of most effective martial arts.

Also, I'm assuming you meant Japanese Jiu Jitsu and not Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. While JJJ incorporates quite a lot of standup, the majority of it is joint lock based. You probably won't be utilizing it that heavily in a sparring session, assuming you're just striking.

Cool

Here in good old South-Africa the majority of Jiu-Jitsu training is Brazilian. My Trainer is largely influenced by the Gracies, not wanting to sound ignorant but I dont really know the difference and the full lay out of JJ.

This whole TKD affair is so confusing regarding the turning around and spinning and sh*t. Man.... If i'm going to take him down i guess I'll have to ground and pound the sucka. From what I saw the TKD training involves a lot of evasive techniques (Keeping the opponent away from them). How would one be aple to negate that??

After you've had sufficient MT training use feints and fakes to throw him off and wait for him to be within range, follow up with a big front push kick from the hip-flying knee combination and if you need to do so just follow up with OTT punches, uppercuts and hooks. Once you are within punchin range and hes took the knee you should be well in control of the sparring session and if it was a genuine fight you should have had the KO. Don't worry about him being too evasive, especially with the little experience he has had, as he's bound to make mistakes, just stay out of reach of his kicks and step in and counter. I agree with "Robopencil" that MT is much better than TKD.

Thumbs up

Cool, BTW Are there any legit TKD fighters in the UFC or MMA in general???? My bud thinks that there's more TKD fighters or techniques than JJ or MT out there. I need to show the fool that the JJ guys outweigh the TKD guys.

rofl, i doubt there are any legit tkd fighters, but there are some who trained in it. most of the time i see tkd fighters especially going to some mcdojo for some bull. i sparred a florida champion and the dude couldn't stand up with me.

the thing about tkd is that it's so much kicks so when you spar you have to close the distance between you guys, you did boxing you could spar the person now if you wanted to.

and some people in the ufc did do tkd, but they just trained in it lightly, so many muaythai/bjj fighters out there

The majority of fighters in MMA train BJJ and Muay Thai. Conversely I can't really name any TKD fighters tbh. I could probably come up with a couple names of fighters who trained TKD for a while when they were kids, though.
