    Strange that their not kicking with the shin, using the foot like karate/kung fu/tkd, still not too shabby!

    So you're supposed to drop your hands when you throw a kick? If you want to show us how awesome he is, get some clips of him fighting. This doesn't prove ****.

    He's not really dropping his hands any more than normal.

    Kind of. But they're pointing their toes for some reason.

    Maybe it's the small screen (or that I suck at MT), but in the first vid at about 2:25 it looks like when his right kick, his right hand swings around as a counter weight, but left stays at his waist rather than protecting his face.

    Nowhere better to learn Muay Thai in England than his gym, thats an opinion which will be verified throughout the country :)

    I've read this opinion a lot on the internet, as such, I tend to believe it. But the 2nd vid (I haven't watched the first yet) makes me wonder.

    Sken was undefeated as a fighter (so the story goes), although he was never a stadium champion AFAIK. We're talking 40 years ago though.

    Thats besides the point though, because he along with Master Toddy are pretty much responsible for bringing Muay Thai to the UK (and Holland too I think). Between them they've produced a fucking shitton of world champions.

    Compared to him, you're the LARPer, so quit dissing him son.
