    Please note: Having tournament fights with no face punching allowed does not neccesarily mean that KK fighters can't KO people with fists if needs be.

    Not exactly the video I'd use to promote either style though. KK guy seemed unsure.

    Heh. It didn't suck that bad. At least someone managed a knock out. But yea, they circled for no reason, it didn't create any openings or what ever. Their kicks were barely of any effect.
    I don't think the punch was that powerful, i think its more because the TKD guy had never been hit in the head before and it came as a shock to him making him fall.

    TKD people need to get punched in the face. Repeatedly.

    When I moved to China I decided that I was going to continue practicing my gong fu.

    I mean, hell, I was in China, right?

    I eventually managed to use my informal contact network to link up with a san da coach operating through the same school that I teach ESL at. I joined up with his class and after a few weeks of Wushu and Taiji we finaly started on the San Da. Now one day we were doing a heap of focus pad drills. The guy I was paired up with kept dropping his hands. He also didn't speak English and I don't know how to say "don't drop your hands" in Putonghua.

    So I just smacked him in the ear with the focus pad before he could hit it each time he let his guard dropped.
