    It's effective without keeping your hands up.

    Keep trolling.

    the reason he got KTFO is because he turned his back and his hands were down.. if his hands were up he would have remained awake. You can call this trolling but its a valid point. Fighting with your hands down is effective against other people fighting with your hands down.. that is all

    You are trolling because, wtf does this video have to do with he OP? Absolutely nothing.


    You have at least three other subforums you could post a LOL@HANDSDown video. You choose to troll a thread with a derail.

    Bull Diff consistently kept his hands up and checked kicks with his forearms and still got knocked the **** out.

    His opponent never used his hands to check a kick, prefering to evade, and barely ever got touched.

    Shut the **** up.

    If anything, that Human Weapon episode proves every MMA, Muay Thai nutrider, kickboxer, and Internet expert wrong.

    You may be a badass at fighting.

    You may excell at things that are not Taekwondo.

    But Taekwondo is Taekwondo, and just because you know how to kick & punch under someone else's rules does not mean that your training will have any correlation or enable you to criticize in any matter within Taekwondo rules.

    " it starts rewarding bullshit like 540 reverse butterfly kicks with a cherry on top."

    HEY!!! That's my best kick! LOL Oh wait. You said 540. Mine is 5.40. My bad.

    Seriously. In our classes every fundamental is practiced again and again. It's the only way to actually learn something.

    With regard to the OP, I don't totally agree. While participating in TKD I always found time being spent on the basics (some drills, some forms - but that's a different conversation). It was also my experience that problems with, say, a reverse side kick, were always treated by identifying where the problem was, was it only the 'reverse' part, or was it the actual execution of the side kick itself...perhaps both. If the side kick was lacking, that's what we had to work on.

    I think your point (as I understood it) applies perfectly to the manner in which self defense was treated at my school.

    And as to sparring, I found that things were contextualized within the point rule set. That there was never any discussion of a non-point rule set is neither surprising nor new.
