    Lots of martial arts have spinning heel kicks is what he was saying.

    IE TKD is not actually even that good at its supposed specialty.

    in my opinion, that video is exactly how the flashier TKD kicks should be thrown. he also kept his hands up. he used the kicks way too much though and hardly punched at all.

    johnny is right - TKDs speciality are these fancier kicks, but they can't even do them right. they slap with their kicks. sparring with more contact teaches you that this doesn't work.

    if some TKD schools sparred with decent rules, we'd see a modification of the style to something more like that video. but that'll never happen.

    so anyway, just do muay thai.

    And in fairness the TKD guy isn't a TKD guy. He studies Kyuk Too Ki- which the header on the video states is essentially TKD, as if TKD is the base of the system. The problem with that is Kyuk Too Ki is a kickboxing system primarily- focusing on the big four punches of boxing (jab, cross, hook + uppercut), + taekwondo hand strikes (also known as karate hand strikes), regular kickboxing such as you'll find anywhere and Muay Thai low kicks with variants of some of the kicks of TKD. Kyuk Too Ki sparring is also full contact.

    It does say WTF TKD on the name of the video. This is wishful thinking.

    I don't think I've ever used those fancy 540 degree spinning and those jumping kicks in sparring.

    The problem with TKD is not that there are no schools that teach proper sparring, quite a few do (here in Singapore at least). The problem is having 6 year old black belts that aren't even trained properly walkin around saying they can kick anyone's ass.

    My instructor wants me to help coach classes now, time to educate the little shits.

    My advice? Beat the crap into them, then make them beat the crap out of each other. Then get other stylists (fresh) to come in and tell your kids to kick the crap out of them or face push-ups. Repeat week in week out. The ones who come back after you put them thru hell, will be the standard-bearers of a working model of TKD training in the next generational- maybe one will be the carlos gracie of the TKD world.....

    but best of all those with the real STKD will cite you as their mentor and teacher.

    You lousy bunch of whores are using YouTube for completely the wrong purpose!

    You're supposed to spend time on YouTube studying the greatness that is El Guapo!

    Even more importantly, you must pay extremely close attention to this!

    Sincerely yours,

    Naw. First order of business is to teach them how to fucking punch, then I'll go into learning to take hits with the Monster game, whereone person person is to keep on advancing on another person and pressurize that person, who will, in turn, beat the ever-living **** out of them (a good way to train reflex's and condition the body).
