Exactly. Bad habits must be focused on early in training to ensure they don't pop up when you're getting pressured

-- As TKD is strongly oriented at point fighting you don't take the time to properly turn your hips into your kicks. That way you lose a lot of power in your kicks.
-- You tend to drop your hands or spread your hands away, especially while kicking, but also while giving body shots. That leaves you open for counter punches. People often do that to gain momentum and to retain balance. So work on proper form of your techniques. Train them as slow as you're able to do them correctly and only then gradually go faster. In order to keep your hands high you may incorporate some kicking drills where you pinch your cheeks or grab your ears with your fingers. It may look and feel awkard, but so you make sure that your hands are near your face for protection.
I had the same problem today at MT. Some new guy showed up in a TKD outfit and he was my partner for the class. My coach asked me to show him the basics, I knew I was in for a hellish time. Kept snap kicking everything and basically rushing throughout

I hate the Kimbo Slice style stuff, and I deal with enough tough guys who think that they are the UFC-bound on the basis of a few backyard brawls. It causes more serious injuries, from what I've seen, than supervised sparring sessions, because of the lack of headgear and general supervision. I strongly recommend joining a gym, where you have the opportunity to train both with people who can give you tips while you're training and who can make sure that you don't do anything to seriously injure yourself.
Everyone that trains in some discipline surely must have endured a few of these characters at one point or another.

You're absolutely right. And often those guys don't make it through a week of training. They hit the gym and either hurt someone or get too frustrated to keep training. It's important to be humble, and a lot of those guys aren't. It's important to understand that the training that comes in backyards is simply not nearly as useful as the training that comes from genuine mat-time spent with BJJ brown and blackbelts, or muay thai masters, or Golden Gloves boxers.

So I strongly recommend that the backyard guys adjust mindsets before ever stepping on the mat. That absolutely has to come first.

Thats a TKD fighter for you, lol.

If you want to fight MMA drop TKD and go to a MMA gym. Im not a big fan of TKD being someones base in MMA.

Is there such a person? Professionally I mean. Of course it's realistic to do it strictly Am and still use TKD since the skill level is lower

Anderson Silva started his martial arts career with TKD and says he still profits from it. But of course, you won't really tell that it's his "base".

I think Anthony Pettis comes from TKD as does Ben Henderson. Cung Le is also a TKD black belt.

But it's true, coming from TKD you have to adjust a lot with your hands.
