    That kick is always countered by a punch to the face or a front kick. It couldn't possibly be effective, it's hardly even effective in WTF sparring.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    [QUOTE=Pagan]Rapid fire rounhouses

    The link leads to some utterly flaccid kicks. The reason this technique is overlooked is because it is entirely ineffective.

    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.
    No, Karate focuses on 1hit kill. Muay Thai focuses on kicking really hard. If you knew anything about Muay Thai you would know this, and know "strategies" vary with each fight.

    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.
    This isn't complete bullshit. A Thai boxer will use your body to change the direction of the momentum of his leg, if the kick doesn't push you away. But are you telling me the Thais haven't yet discovered the left-right-left kick combination? I know this to be false because I myself have kicked people with such a combination as early as 1992. I realize this may be a bit slow in comparison to the ancient and venerable history of TKD, but it did seem familiar to my instructor too. A thai fighter would simply not notice being kicked like the video people do it, except as an opportunity to drop them with a right cross.

    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.
    Perhaps the thais continue to do what they do because it already works real well?
    Maybe they don't film their failed experiments and post them on the web?
    We will continue to see Thaiboxers harm TKD "stylists" and if your video fighters are the future, it will only get easier.

    I think you'll find that against anyone with any skill or experience instead of being confused will just punch you in the face while you practice that tip-tap-****.

    Even my old TKD teacher knew that the tip-tap stuff was for conditioning, balance, endurance etc.....he made sure we not to try that crap in a real fight.

    Show me a video of someone doing that with enough power to hurt a skilled fighter badly enough that he'll go on the defensive.

    I'd rate this guy a 2/10 for his trolling.

    Please, enlighten us.

    To OP, what about doubling up the same-side roundhouse? They do that in MT, and it seems to work just fine, except with plenty of power.
