When my father used to get into street fights as a teenager he would beat the **** out of people who would try to kick him in fights. He said it was because they were untrained so they had bad balance to try and kick.
In my Taekwon do class I would tear people up when I would just use punches. My instructor would yell at me and tell me to kick more.

To end the debate I think boxing is a neccessary skill for MMA. I've been fortunate enough be able to spar with some pretty talented boxers. They help me get my timing down and it's pretty easy to mimic alot of their techniques from my kung-fu training. Unfortunately for most boxers is that their stances limit their defense vs other systems. If the other person knows boxing then the pure boxer tends to get screwed. Of course the person and skill level comes into play..
damn I'm babbling again...

This is true.
What pisses me off is that if anyone else said this, they would be flammed for their trouble and given a rapp-on about how no other striking art is equiped to take on boxing.Especially kung fu. But because Omega says it....no one says ****.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

PSB - watch a few mma matches and note how much of the time is spent doing boxing-style standup.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
