    Wow, how do you get KOed like that?

    One kick, one first kick, one first flying kick at that:

    YouTube- Taekwondo WTF vs Kick Boxing..win fighter of taekwondo WTF...perfect ko

    Was that guy sleeping? Interesting nonetheless.

    Sorry if it has been posted before.

    what makes it more lol is that was the same kick he demo'd before they started fighting. kinda reminds me of the bit in kickboxer where tong po is whacking his knees before one round, then his elbows before another etc.

    Yeah, and for something funnier:

    YouTube- korean kickboxing TMA

    Look at the dude after he KO the other one. Priceless.

    I actually got knocked out by that same kick... I was 14 and the other guy was easily 20 lbs lighter than me and he launched. I remember everything going white and asking the referee what happened and he said "yeah you lost."

    the first kick is actually a spinning hook kick.

    Though they are low percentage techniques they generate a huge amount of power and if you haven't faced it before it can be very imtimidating. You see the other guy spinning and you can't tell where or when the attack is going to land.

    In this instance the Kickboxer looked like he was offering to touch gloves and didn't react quick enough to establish his guard when he saw the other fighter spinning.

    Certainly not something to rely on but it's no bad thing to have it in your arsenal.

    wow that was a beautiful kick, personally I like the 180 kick (aka spinning side kick) kick to the torso I have seen David "the crow" Loiseau UFC and Machida got Tito Ortiz with that too, when it connects it hurts.

    Yep, and the KO was a Tornado kick.

    I've always been impressed by that kick, though this one looked a bit stretched out as he came from across the ring into it. I've seen others from random TKD tourney KOs that are more tight where I think the person expected spinning back kick and caught a surprise rear leg round kick to the face instead. Since I've been fiddling around with back kick more lately, I'm tempted to learn this kick and try to catch people with it for fun value.

    I found a good tutorial that broke down the footwork very well into separate bits to practice, we'll see... Wish some TKDers would show up to TDs and show me. ><

    I'd go if I could ever get a ride. (ah, the sad life of a college student with no car).

    But back on topic this often does throw the opponent off, and because it's often considered an advanced technique there are many taekwondo fighters how get KTFO by it simply because they were't expecting it
