    looks to me as tho if your potential opponents sidestepped to your right, they could pop you in the face.
    I dunno, I guess our tae kwon do needs work :(

    "Rather than allowing the energy to travel forward in a straight line, the fighter adds the sixth power of triangulation by pushing his fist downward upon impact. The fighter literally drives the energy into the target and down toward the ground.
    The thai fighter's fist rides this downward circle like a wave and returns like a whip to the guard position. Thus the energy is "triangulated" from the figher's feet, up through the body and shoulder, out through the arm and fist, into the opponent, and then back down to the ground under the opponent's feet, where it theoretically rebounds."

    It appears to me that is how the thai fighter is throwing punches in the video and that is how my MT instructor taught me to throw punches.
    I can pretty much guarantee that the above description is written by Marc van ??? the co-author of the book .... I have trained/ Am again (soon) to be training with Pedro in Thailand . There's a couple of things in the book that I've asked pedro about, that seemed weird or over complicated & more often then not Pedro will say "That's a Marc thing"

    hey, i'm just a noob asking. does the added power come from thrusting your arms downwards/backwards? thought this was a good thread to ask.

    yeah kid, your TKD needs work, but then again so does my muay thai :(

    I JOKE, I KID, before anyone starts their flamethrower.

    seriously tho, and this is an honest question, doesn't it ever happen? someone circles around and pops you in the face?

    i think it would be similar to a back kick where you bring your head down to give your heel more altitude to get it up to their chin, and they whack you in the head after they move out of the way (seen it happen).

    not really because generally, people arent that ninja fast that they can move in and throw the punch before getting hit. unless you telegraph too much

    If you really look at the picture, our heads are pretty far away from any sort of punching range. Sure, if I flubbed the kick and he came rushing in I'd probably eat one, but generally I'll be off line and ready to move for an incoming counter punch.

    Thanks a lot for posting this, finally I've realized why I couldn't get the damn straight right (hey, I'm a MT n00b).

    Looking at the original video on the first page I have some comments.

    Now these guy could obviously kick my ass, and for the most part the round kicks are nice... but the spinning back and side kicks... geez. These guys could generate so much more power with better technique. I'm guess these kicks are not empasized that much in Thai training from the looks.

    A little TKD cross training (yes blasphemy, I know) in these kicks could really help out methinks. Cause geez... I'm not a fighter but I have a harder spinning back kick then that guy and can keep my balance afterwards.
