    How to pwn a Taekwondoka

    Hi all,

    This week's lighter side:

    A friend of mine, a TKD black belt, has misunderstood
    my question for a friendly sparring session for a gong sao challenge (MMA style).

    Though we have not set the modalities, I guess we will have our fight in the next month.
    (Yeah, should this come to play out, I'll provide a video - without CGI effects, this time!)

    Since he is usually very convinced of his skills, and at least one weight class above me,
    I think I'd like to pawn him a bit, and consciously attack him with some techniques he doesn't train.

    So, my question is, what techniques are not part of the TKD canon?
    - I understand traditional TKD practicioners do not do grappling at all
    and don't know arm or leg locks.

    Also, since my TKD experience is fairly small, what will I have to do expect from him except a flurry of kicks and straight center punches?

    Yours,

    Rafe

    When I first sparred outside of TKD world, face punches, spinning back fists, really took their toll on my head till I got my hands up.

    Not sure of the rule set. But jamming kicks is almost unheard of too.

      If he's training WTF style, use some decent boxing, elbows, knees and lowkicks for stand-up, then takedown for some grappling.
      Most important, close the distance so he loses a lot of his kicking ability.

        leg kick the fuck out of him.
        i have never known a single tae kwon do player who can take those.
        also, sweeps/throws. if do right, no can defense (if your fighting a tkd player).

        EDIT: zendokan is right, WTF TKD does nothing to prepare you for someone getting all up in your grill with knees or elbows.

            For the most part, unless he goes to the 1% of good TKD schools that 95% of the Taekwondoka go to, he would be open to leg kicks and face punches.

              Is TKD the only thing he has trained in?

                  If he gets the sideways stance on you, leg kick the shit out of him on his backside. Not kicking him in the ass, but on the back of his legs.

                  There really isn't a good way to defend that, and that's why us smart ones square up.

                      let me qualify my statement better.

                      i have never known a single tae kwon do player, who has never studied another style, who can take/defend leg kicks.

                        Not with the art, just with the politics in the KMA scene.

                          Catch and trip those legs, you don't even have to follow to the ground. Do it enough times and he'll be afraid of kicking. Then he's all yours.

                            First thing to remember is that not all TKDers are created equal.
                            Second thing is that underestimating any fighter gives them a distinct advantage.
                            A friend of mine, a TKD black belt, has misunderstood
                            my question for a friendly sparring session for a gong sao challenge (MMA style).
                            And what's wrong with correcting his mistake? If he's a friend, why the need for a gong sau?
                            You can still spar hard without it being all dramatic.
                            Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

                              Any techniques shown here will work on most TKDers:

                              If your friend does actually train in other arts besides TKD, though, I would suggest not doing them.
