    15 Taekwondo Blackbelts In MMA

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taxNpbk2iI8&t=326s

    What are your views on Taekwondo?

    Pro's that I've encountered online;

    Taekwondo stylists have great flexibility.

    Taekwondo stylists are great at spinning attacks, push kicks and traditional side kicks. Roundhouse kicks with the foot are likely to cause a KO if they connect on the head.

    Taekwondo stylists work on bouncing and have good footwork.

    Counterview points;

    A lot of schools don't put a lot of emphasis on strikes to the head, which can become a liability against a good boxer.

    If a roundhouse kicks to the leg or body is blocked by a shin check it can cause in some cases immediate damage against the kicker such as a broken foot.

    Although the footwork is mobile, sometimes it can be too mobile with practitioners jumping back a figurative mile from an attack and not being in a position to counter?

    Any other pro's and con's? What do you think good as a piece of the puzzle for an MMA fighter? Good as an intro into martial arts? Or not worth it for serious practitioners?

    From what i remember and this was back in the early 90's....the TKD guys were generally in very good shape and TKD seemed to attract a lot of cute girls.

      In Australia back in the 90,s there was a TKD trainer Jemal Hassan who produced some absolute killers.

      There are certainly TKDers out there with usable skills.

        I think its cool for kids. They don't get punched in the noggin too much but they learn some movement and awesome kicks.
        If they wanna take it further they can build on those skills.
        The Caucasian always has stronger strength and when comes to grappling, Caucasians mostly win easily. I do know grappling and if I used it on Asians my size, it works. - Kung Fu dude that got waxed at OneFc try out.

          And it is a different mechanic to kick boxing and Muai thai. And so can be sort of awkward to deal with.

          A flick kick to the head really fucking hurts. It doesn't need to be juiced up. It just has to land right.

          I know a karate guy who can apply that point style striking to MMA and he does quite well.

          Does well in kudo as well.

              The link starts you near the end of the video, so you may have seen only the last three.

                  Well, he lists fifteen MMA fighters with TKD backgrounds in a near monotone. If you like that kind of thing.
