Who knows, I underhooked/overhooked the guy and swept him. Had it come to blows, strikes and kicks, I would've probably killed him. In Krav our punching is similar to the Muay Thai punching, much faster and more effective than the silly tkd punches. A clench, sprawl and elbow to the neck are natural, just like a roundhouse knee to the ribs.

This is probably one of the top three stupidest threads I've ever seen. Is this like, a bunch of bots programmed to be stupid arguing with each other?
"[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

Yea, I just hate TKD...it was a dumb comment to a relatively dumb thread. I was paid to wrestle in college, it's called a scholarship, fighthing a storefront black belt is no relative measure.
I think I brought it out with "It's the artist not the art" and the "Boxer v TKD" realy brings out the adverarily nature of people
