It IS how you train.
But i personally think the muay thai roundhouse is better, it just...does more damage. Especially if you like to kick low.
In my school, we kick using the shin and we dont do any flicky motions, we follow through.
The style is still Uechi-ryu, but we kick very Thai.
So why not do the same with TKD?
Cant thier be a seperate association or TKD group that uses low kicks?
THAT is what i mean how you train.
Why the hell should a karate/tkd guy's fighting style look like all the other guys? Why isnt it more like boxing with karate and tae kwon do?
When you see two boxers fight, they fight differently, thier own personal styles.
I know EVERYONE has thier own personal styles, but i see it more so in MMA and boxing.
So why cant karate guys have such big differences in how they fight? Why do they all have to be UNEVOLVED fuckers? They just DO NOT CHANGE, they refuse to keep with the times.
THIS is why Muay thai kills karate/Tae kwon do, because they keep up with the modern world.
You all probably know this already, better then me, but i just had to get that out.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
One of the major roots of traditional TKD, perhaps...depending on which kwan. Looking at the broad spectrum of the kwans that would eventually form the majority of TKD, the roots would include Shotokan, Shito-ryu, and to a much lesser extent, Northern Shaolin Long Fist and Taiji.

Each was the root of one. That doesn't make them the same thing.
Like I said in another post, "What Taekwondo can, Shotokan't".
I find this TKD-KSW equivalency claim to be especially wierd because when I moved back to Toronto, my Hapikido teacher reccmended KSW precisely because it doesn't use TKD-style kicks. In my experience, the universal TKD kicks (the ones you find in all schools) aren't much like kicks in other Korean MA, unless they're taught as a supplement to Taekwondo anyway. The TKD guy I train with does the kicks both ways, and is pretty specific bout the differences when working with students. Then again, I hear tha the ITF kicking style has some significant differences from the WTF chambered style.
Hahaha, they (the TKD crowd) won't like that.
