    In my 4-5 years of WC I could count the number of athletic people I worked out with on my hands, so the dishwashers may be all you get.

    Or a more competent muay thai fighter that wasn't outweighed by 60 lbs. and didn't seem to know how to use his hands?

    Or maybe even ONE represenatative of KMA? Hee Il Cho or Pu Gil Gwon or any of those early 1970s Koreans would have hung in there with the best of that crowd (yeah, flame away), and maybe even have won the whole thing.

    Or maybe the entire documentary was a set-up to make kyokushin look good? (GASP!)

    No.

    First of all it was an OPEN style tournament. You think these WC people were hand picked? By and large the majority of competitors were Kyokushin, but you saw all kinds of styles there.

    For example the Muay Thai stylist did very well. He withdrew in a later match.because he realized the weight differential would destroy him. The WC people didn't even get past the first round. They were horribly embarrassed.

    The problem that none of the _ing _un people want to own up to is that they have very few competent, athletic practioners who COULD do well in that environment of full contact knockdown karate. This is compounded by the fact that they have the same problem in ANY format - especially today in MMA.

    And for the record I doubt that Cho or Gwon would have done very well in that style of competition. Korean stylists are at a severe disadvantage when you add leg kicks into the mix.

    I have also taken many years of wrestling. When I was in jr. high and high school. Combined with training now, and just common sense, that is NOT a good way to defend a takedown. If you were to find some way to stop the forward motion of a takedown first, Ie: sprawl, then palm him in the back of his head or piss on his back for all i care to your heart's delight.

    I have heard that touted as a way to actually stop a takedown, but if you see an example of it working it is not because the "palm" stops the takedown, it is because the momentum is stopped for some other reason/technique and the palm/fist is the punishment given because the person is now in a shitty position.

    But the palm alone? or the knee alone? no way. In highschool did you ever practice changeovers? raise your knee and the moment you moved it off the ground you have now effectively decreased your resistance to the takedown by half. Again you need to find a way to stop the forward momentum that is reliable and can be repeatedly used.

    Before the Dutch influence, traditional Muay Thai had very limited handwork. Punches are the least-scoring technique under traditional Thai rules. In the time period we are talking about, very few thai fighters would have had anything approaching good boxing.

    Muay thai fighters come in all sizes,
    No, Thai fighters come in "small" and "smaller", typically. They're not a large people to begin with and most of them are chronically undernourished, something which was even more true back then than it is today.

    i take the dreaded jeet kune do, and we do a lot of your dreaded wing tsun, and just as an FYI to do most of the wing chun techniques you cant have boxing gloves on. i think a guy who strictly did wing tsun would get beat up in ufc, but i don think knowledge of wing chun can hurt at all.

    Oh dear... such a noob.

    Knowledge of Wing Chun can hurt because it can fill your head with a whole lot of unapplied nonsense that will get you bashed in a fight.

    Thats not to say that it couldnt be effective in some utopian universe... but in order to make it effective Wing Chun would have to be made full-contact in its training (something more akin to Kyokushin)... if it made this big step then it would be more respectable, more practical, and probably do well in NHB style competitions... along with all other full-contact MAs like MT, boxing, Judo, BJJ etc etc.

    Its like criticizing the US military for not using their Tomahawk missiles and smart bombs in Vietnam. It would be a valid criticism, if it applied to the time.
    So, strained metaphors aside, did the TKD fighters of the 70s learn to use and defend leg kicks or not?
