Those TKD kicks can disable an opponent because they cause him laugh so hard that it's early incapaciating.

Any TKD who would like to know why those kicks are not used in MT is welcome to give me a dozen each side. Then all they have to do is hold the pads for me while I kick.
My brother once held the pads for me for MT (admittedly he was a noob at this stage). After about 15 minutes of me kicking (the one-hit kill type) we had to stop because his arms were sore. Next day his arms came up many shades of purple and blue. I am not particularly strong or big but technique, and years of experience have allowed me to develop reasonably hard kicks. Why kick 10 times when all you need is one good one?

This clip gets rolled out about every six months on here; and yes it is a complete set up.
TKD must be able to come up with something else? Or at least a new set up.

the clip was good, I have a clip of a aTKD guy (straight blast gym guy) - doing some awsome stuff against a game Kykushin guy. I took TKD for a number of years - so what is my point and why did I 'change' my style. Because in these TKD clips, it takes a certain bodytype and athleticism - the initial clips show how an avg dude (me, those in the clips) - would do those kicks (crappy, no power).
MT is more malleable, you can create a better game based on your body. Can't kick high? Great, we have great low kicks. Can't kick? We can teach you how to take a kick and move to the clinch or box. MT is just so complete.
