    Uh, what the **** is the point? If you can fight with your hands, good for you. You've just proved to your friend TKD sucks if he had to "change the rules".

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Don't listen to anything they say . If they told you not to use your hands that only means that their hand skills suck and they wanted to save a little bit of whatever pride they have by handicapping you. Keep working your hands as well as kicks and tell them dudes to **** off. Find a Muay Thai , Sanda, or Boxing gym to work out at because we all know tkd sucks ass regardless of how it's packaged ;)

    I can't imagine why the **** someone would want to fight with no hands. You should have just played along, stepped in on a kick, and punched your "friend" right in his stupid mouth....I may be a little biased (check style field)

    Urgh...

    Ok, guys, shut up for a minute and quit whining about TKD. This is actually a good opportunity for the OP to improve a skillset and to walk away from this thinking to himself "well if I could punch I could kick his ass so I don't need to improve my kicking!" That's just going to stunt your growth.

    Spar more with this guy and try and pick up a few things from his training. If he's out kicking you, that means your kicks could use some improvement. Is it entirely vital that you be able to fight kicks only? Of course not. But this is a good opportunity to improve that skillset. Of course if you don't really care about improving your kicks, focus on what you feel works best for you (boxing/takedowns/clinch... whatever). Isolation training IS a good way to improve things.

    training kicking tkd style WILL hamper you because a tkd guy couldnt chain his punches and kicks together if his fucking life depended on it. when you remove hands from the equation it becomes a sport so completely different to what the OP is training for (san shou) that all it will do is **** up things like your distancing .

    Isolation is a good way to improve a certain skillset but only if a person doesn't neglect the other skillsets they are already good at. If he has good hands and starts to concentrate on kicks only his hands are going to suffer.

    Don't you think it would be more beneficial to keep using kicks as well as punches but sparring with different people who have different strengths so you're still working on the whole but focusing on different parts of the whole at different stages.

    What do I know though I went to public school in Mississippi I'm lucky to be able to reads the letters I'm typing

    I don't really mean go from kicking sanda style to kicking TKD style, what I'm saying is that he should incorporate the isolation into his training if he wants to improve his kicking. A sanda person should, by all means, have the capacity to out kick a TKD person if they put forth the effort to do so. At least, they shouldn't be getting their ass kicked in a kicks only setting. There are some things about TKD kicking, however, that ARE good. The wide, side aligned stance is a bunch of crap in my opinion, but TKDers (at least the good ones) tend to have leg agility that not a whole lot of other stylists have. Then there are things like the spinning back kick and side kick that can prove pretty useful.

    The guy shouldn't change up his kicking style, but try to incorporate some stuff to expand his abilities.
