I'm having an arguement with a guy on youtube who thinks Muay Thai sucks compared to tae kwon do. I think that the simple lack of protecting your face in TKD says it all. Tell me what you think is better
I WANTED TO CLEAR THIS UP AND SAY I WAS TALKING ABOUT OLYMPIC TAE KWON DOswpthleg said:i take tkd and i'm constantly being told to protect my face. i have seen karatekas protect their face w/ only one hand, with the other one at right angles to it, however. she was a 5th degree black belt so i don't think it was an accident.
we are only now starting full-contact sparring at green stripe level and up.
we have incorporated muay thai here and there because nearly everybody in the class is an mma fan and is bugging the sabunim to school us on knees, elbows, low leg kicks etc. it is a hell of a lot of fun.
i don't know if you can even compare a self-defense art to one that is more aggression-based; refer to onganju's post which is very insightful on that point.
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***** Poker said:TKD is awesome!
If you're an 11 year old girl and your parents wont let participate in any sports where you might get hurt.
This is so utterly ridiculous that it can only be a troll.
