    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    TaeKwonDo competition sparring:tips

    i started this thread for people training in TKD to share their experience here(MMA/MT bastards just leave us TKD practitioners alone).any tips is welcomed(as long as it is good.no jumping 720 kick to your opponent is not a good tips)

    i'll start
    1-don't worry about those those fast double roundhouse kick.it don't hurt much.but do worry on axe kick coming out of nowhere.that and a back-kick to the face
    2-learn some punching(crappy punching technique is better than no punching at all) and use it to keep the distance



    carry on

    But they will score.

    Distance is better kept under WTF ruleset with footwork, front kicks and back kicks. You're not going to keep distance with punches to the chest against a guy throwing fast and continuous roundhouses while advancing towards you.

    Back in the day when I did do TKD.

    Utilize the front leg side kick as a stop technique and launch round house and spin sides off of it.

    Learn to jam kicks and get inside. I did this more than most people and was considered a hooligan when I did WTF tournaments. Generally I would close the gap on a roundkick take it on my arm and then throw a couple of body shots and finish with an axekick while looking them dead in the face.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    If you do manage to get in close, start throwing a barrage of punches, then quickly push him away, and sneak in a roundhouse from either side to the head.

    This next one worked for me, but not sure if it was because I had exceptional speed, but when someone charged in with a kick or whatever, jump to the side, and throw a roundhouse kick to his forward side simultaneously.

    I always tried to throw as many punches as I could. The judges may not count them, but if thrown hard enough, they will hurt the guy, and that will help you score points indirectly because you have a way to control him. Plus he may be scared that the punches do score.

    The front kick is under utilized. When someone throws a turning kick, or spinning kick, there is still some part of the protector that is facing front along the trajectory of the kick, whether it be bad posture or what not. The front kick can modified to attack these targets.

    Another trick I liked to use was, I would throw one backkick from one side to get the guy thinking, and then immediately, I would turn the other way and throw backkick from that side.

    When someone throws a backkick at me, I would babyhop to a side and throw a spinning hook kick to the head.
