    He has the same square stance as a thai boxer and if your suggesting if someone bends at the waist = western boxing your a retard and if your saying someone has to do TKD to have flair then you are even more so.

    I would go so far as MT'er's even shin check harder than a Karateka. They almost drive through the shin check quite often leading to those inside elbows and knees.

    Of course their are phenoms in every sport that simply don't bother with the norm.

    His arguement is that Chuck Liddell has to be fighting like a Karate fighter because of the way he moves backwards and punches from weird angles. My response is that there are many kickboxers who fight that way as well. Its not something thats only done by guys with Karate background. It can just as well have come from his kickboxing background.
    I understand that but your response to his response to me was simillar to what sakmongol already said to which I answered.

    My head hurts....

My Kru would keep yelling at me to push through the check that way I can get inside and keep my pace moving forward. Momentum is a big deal and it really helped me get throught my amatuer muay thai fights.

    No i didn't say you have to have TKD to have flair in your style. I said that he has some TKD influenced flair in his stand up, ie, doubl kicks, spinning back kicks, jumping kicks. Are these techniques unique to TKD? No, but TKD more commonly utilizes these techniques, and it is a style he's studied in the past.

    The way anderson silva hold his hands more like a boxer, and has his hips less squared than most thai boxers. I'm not saying that thai boxers don't ever use certain aspects of other styles, I am saying that these said differences are more commonly seen in styles other than Muay Thai. It is clear that Anderson Silva utlizes techniques that he picked up from his individual study of Boxing and of TKD and added them to his Muay Thai core. I don't understand why this is so hard to comprehend.

    Here's some goju irikumi (continous sparring)

    YouTube - IOGKF Shurenkai Tokyo / 1st-2nd Dan Irikumi

    YouTube - Goju-Ryu Irikumi #2

    For better or worse you can sum the flow as - atttack, attack, attack, retreat ,retreat ,retreat, atttack, attack, attack, retreat ,retreat ,retreat.

    There's are pro's and cons to this, especially for MMA, but there is also an emphasis on a certain evasivness that can be benefitial in MMA, which I see in GSP, and Machida and some what in Lidell. Is it unique to Karate? No but this style of evasiveness is more prevelant in Karate than in most Muay Thai.

    Machida does it the best of all because he has great ground skill to go with it. What Machida IMO lacks is knowing when to switch from evasiveness to full blown bludgeoning attack.

    No, but sometimes it's almost worth setting up a betting pool to find who's fastest at beginning with "I think..." to proving beyond doubt that they don't...
