A technique often overlooked by Muay Thai stylists
Rapid fire rounhouses
Muay thai focuses on the "1 hit kill" philosophy when it comes to roundhouses. I'm not saying muay thai has stagnated on creating new innovations, but they are not actively deveoping new strategies.
These Korean art stylists use the momentum of their roundhosue bouncing off the target to generate power for another roundhouse coming in the opposite direction. The opponent may block the first, even the 2cd, but the attacks come so fast they will begin to land hard.
Taekwondo is actively evolving. It is an art in motion and we may see a slow but radical shift in the outcome of TKD vs. Muay thai matches.
Provide video of this working or even pictures (though those won't show as much) and maybe someone will care.
you should actually like, know something about what you're criticising before making a stupid statement about how "muay thai stylists don't do this". You're full of ****. Please stop plugging your shitty martial arts.

mm.. that isn't video of it working. that's video of some kids at summer camp being made to goose-step towards a guy holding a pad.

So why don't we see them generating more power with each kick? By that final kick they should really be knocking the guy holding the pads on his ass with all that power generation going on.

So much wasted energy with that front kick. The correct counter is to stand there and take those little love taps. As you can see from the video your enemy will move forward relentlessly. Wait until he is inches from your face and take him out with a head butt. :P

If I ever find a guy that can do that well and with power I will bow down and say"teach me sensei" Until that guy surfaces I'll stick to trying to develop power in my kicks the old fashioned way.
