    headbutts

    someone, at some point; long lost to my memory mentioned that TKD was once known for its headbutts.

    Did i imagine this?

    if i didn't how did it differ from other headbutts and also why did it lose favor.

    Here is how a real headbutt works:

    YouTube - Dan the Man.

    TKD can do it better?

    awesome vid. grab, pull into thrusting forehead. too bad someone got slammed.

    as always, ask people who train the technique full-power. who trains headbutts full power, you ask?

    soccer players.

    Most people will do a headbutt with the forehead which is kind of "not smart" because you have a lot of nerve endings, blood vessels in the area above your nose and your nose is in the way too.
    You should face a little sideways and hit with the corner of your head. (This is what we have been taught at TKD and AK)

    Yes, Muay Thai - and the other South East Asian variations thereof - used to allow headbutts. The only one that still does, as far as I know, is Burmese Boxing aka Lethwei.

    YouTube - Head Butt, Myanmar Lethwei

    No TKD style I am aware of practises headbutts in any meaningful way. Some might have them in a one-step type 'self defence' drill, but I doubt any actually practise them on bags or in sparring.

    Did you try the search function? I hear that is a good place to start when you think that you might have heard something here before.

    I doubt it. TKD has only been around about 50 years, and was pretty much Shotokan when it started and now it's... well, what it is now.
