Ok we all probably have seen this guy, and he's probably the one of the (or only) good TKD guy out there. His strikes are swift as they are hard. Of course he knows no ground grappling (though I heard he dabbled in it before a fight with a Japanese mma artist) and of course lost.
Anyone know if this guy is the only good tkd artist or what?
Welcome to Bullshido, the best Martial Arts forum on the entire Internet, Dmasterman. Seriously, you won't regret your choice to join us. We're a great bunch of folks, except for Hannibal. And Sirc. And TaiGip. And MMA Kid. And... well, you get the point.
yeah hes pretty good, i love watching the dude fight, win or lose you know its gonna be good to watch. hes a bit reckless though. i cant think of any other tkd guys who are at his level as far as k-1 goes. (probably because the only other tkd guy i can think of is that dude genki sudo koed with a spinning backfist combo)
dont fall into the trap of thinking the guy trains even remotely similarly to 99% of other tkders out there who try to prop him up as some kind of messiah, like that Juras guy.
Either he's training in some old style of TKD perfected back in feudal Korea, or he does alive training with TKD (meaning he makes his kicks hard)

if by "proper way" you mean he trains in kickboxing then yeah.
I've seen that guy on you tube. Is he still fighting?
