Check out the kicks this guy has.
Tagged: On The Mat
that is some impressive kicking. had heard that type of kicking is not effective. now it seems that only doing it wrong is ineffective. hahahaha!!!! he definitely has some speed. perhaps we shall see more like him in the future? particularly if the koreans keep producing fighters?
agreed bigginz. never say anyone else pull that off. especially not live fire like that!!!!!
It is a variatin of the tornado kick but he used a spining heal kick instead of a roundhouse kick. :cool:
so there are several methods of this attack?!?! wow. thats huge. are such kicks also indigenous to muaythai? or just taekwondo?
Mostly TKD. TKD has the most kicks of any style I have ever run across. Mauy Thai usually just uses front kicks and roundhouse kicks. :cool:
is this due to lack of knowledge on the part ot the instructors, or lack of inclination on the part of the fighters. it is clearly apples and oranges, but was there a common ancestor to these systems, or are they both for completely different reasons (purposes)?
The each come from different areas and different philosphies on fighting. :cool:
kibuninc, much has been said of the thai philosophy on combat, but what sort of philosophy gives birth to a tornado(?) kick?
In thai fighting they belive in only techniques that are simple stand up style that work. Basically boxing with elbows, knees, and a few kicks.
The tornado kick is interesting. when a person spins to throw a spin kick many opponents tend to step backwards to simply avoid a powerful kick. By continueing to spin around again you close the distance and make it harder for a person to react to the movement because of the constent spinning. You also generate alot of force.
sounds interesting. perhaps the koreans were accustomed to to more mobile opponents? maybe a little more interested in pursuit!!! does kibuninc know when both of these systems were created? have heard muaythai was made for jungle fighters, taekwondo for samurai types.
if in a jungle, maybe mobility not so practical then, neh?
I do not know when either style was created. The worst part is that I have a black belt in TKD and I thai boxed for 18 years. You would think I would know that answer.
bad kibuninc. bad. oh well, maybe it's alzheimers setting in? hahahahahaha!
Cool I have been waiting to enjoy some time away from my bain. :D
