roflmao. that Bas Rutten vid is hilarious.
I was just shown the TKD episode.
I just don't know what to say except...
Both hosts managed to suffer fight ending injuries in a sport that's best know for it's 11 year old blackbelts & "flying kicks were intended for fighting opponents on horseback".
After a season full of experts playing pattycake & giving the host an easy ride, the TKD guys get to use the ineptitude of Human Weapon to brainwash more idiot kids.
So, it's a sad day for the martial arts but TKD gets it's victory dance.
:karated: :crybaby2: :crybaby2: :crybaby2: :crybaby2: :crybaby2:
You guys know what this means, right?
The TKD guy who knocked out Bill Duff has to fight Ricco Rodriguez.
Wow, for an ex-wrestler, Duff really doesn't know how to sprawl.
Or shoot for that matter.

Unless the kick in question could contain enough force to crush the front of the skull, or rupture the delicate array of veins and nerve clusters around the back of the sinal cavity then there would be very little occuring other that a sore face and a bloody nose.
Maybe if they had the big old boots that the name of the sport was derived from - maybe...
But with little slippers on, or barefoot? no.
I recall a hand strike in the D34dl3y _ing _hun (yeah the hand - suuurrre enough force there..) having the reputation to do the same thing...
and not supprisingly there's no historical factual information to back this up.
The only real thing about it, is usually when someone's just got a foot smashed into their face - they tend to forget about carrying on the fight...
Oh liver, where art thou?
You gotta realise that when Mas Osyama died, Kyokushin split into a few different factions, I'm going to guess 1 of 2 things here:

Other then that I have nfi, I was wondering the same thing.
I don't know if the FQ is a written dialogue the host do, but it makes the host sound retarded. HW dialogue had to be written it had to many referances to the deadly.
Kyokushin guys dont wear shinguards in competition (unless it is kids rules, or some local laws/regulations is forcing them to), but it is often used in daily practice sparring so as not to get injured in training.

Not ALLtraining in kyokushin is the slightly insane "lets toughen up by beating each other as hard as we can" type of training.
But in serious kyokushin Kumite/sparring/competitions/tests? No, no shinguards is used.
Cool vids there BSDaemon. Just noticed there was a YT group for Bullshido too, cool.
