    Asia is correct. Benny isn't a "TKD" stylist, he's a kickboxer and trains in Muay Thai as well. The rule set in this fight seems to be geared in favor of the TKD specialist. No punches or elbows, no clinches.. are knees allowed? It's like the only weapon they left the thaiboxer was his kicks.

    This is an interesting video and I haven't seen it posted in other threads.

    TKD sucks. :dink:

    I only saw half the video (cut off just after the TKD take a roundhouse to the head, after the axe kick)... and it didn't look like the thai guy dominated, within the rule set. They both traded kicks, they both landed a bit of damage, with the edge to the Thai fighter, even I have to admit.... but as a show case for "kicking"... I think TKD comes off in a good light. He stood toe to toe with the thai guy. As for clinching and the rest, I'm sure the TKD man would have gotten owned, prolly knowing nothing about fighting in this range, but I don't think anyone is delusional enough to think TKD would win in this instance.

    Just on a side note, I went to some kickboxing matches this weekend in Grand Portage (northern minnesota) to watch a kid from my school fight in an exhibition match (12 years old, xtrains in boxing and Kboxing). His kicking skills owned his opponent. and the other fighting looked as if they could have used some work in that department. A little TKD cross training is a good thing...

    He must be slipping. He forgot to bring up Gary Goodridge again.

    How can anyone forget the infamous pressure point attack to the LT7*, which won him the fight.

    Benny is a black belt in TKD. At the time he destroyed those muay thai fighters, he had no muay thai training. The first thai he fought, he actually thought "muay thai" was the name of the fighter.

    Benny holds black belts in TKD, Kenpo, and Aikido. Styles bullshido seems to think don't work. Yet Benny destroyed your precious thai fighters using primarily TKD kicks. Did you see the auwsome Aikido throw he does on thai boxer?

    Have you ever heard of Ed Parkers Kenpo karate? It's sometimes refered to as the "style of overkill". It is brutal and benny holds a black belt in it.

    Benny trains kickboxing, he holds blackbelts in other systems but if you notice how he trains, it's kickboxing. He doesn't do forms all day and practice throwing uke around. For some reason, he trains like a kickboxer and fights in the kickboxing venue. He didn't destroy the thaiboxers in his first fights, they were close matches and were stopped.

    Yes, it's a joke. Benny holds a belt in it, but he trains kickboxing. It's the training that matters, not what a person holds a belt in.

    First and foremost he is a TKD, Kenpo, and Aikidoka. He beat muay thai stylists at their own game of ring fighting. I guess the easy way to go into denial is to say: "if he fought in thai boxing that makes him a thai boxer so thai boxing didn't really lose".

    Actually thai boxing did lose. And it lost spectacuarly.
