I think the "handwork" is just a result of him not knowing any better. I mean it is apparent that he has little to none experience when it comes to boxing and using his guard so he tries "as hard as he can" to keep his ground in this department.Quote:

And I don't know why you are picking on the guy, he showed up, he did ok ,within his limits,(and I am not saying this from a MMA perspective but a TKD one) and this should be all that matters. He could be a real ass and kicked you all over the place (you really invited him to do so) but he didn't either because of the rules, or because of his lack of skill (his technique was off, even from a TKD perspective).
