    There's definitely bad habits, especially when transitioning to another striking art like like Muay Thai.

    One would have to have superb takedown defence too

    I second that - I transitioned from Taekwondo to Muay Thai and there were habits I had formed that I had to fix, and also takedown defence was basically non-existent in Taekwondo so that was another thing I had to learn.

    A foot and leg is going to have more mass than a punch. I am not sure how hard you really need to hit a guy all that hard with it to knock a person out. An accurate flick kick should end a guy.

    That was a front kick. He didnít use a chambered kick. You can see him extend his hips as he does it: to put his weight behind it.
