    I haven't seen this video anywhere yet, so it's new to me.

    Nice.

    Though not exclusive to TKD, the spin back kick is one "fancy TKD kick" that has proven itself in MMA competition to be a useful and powerful kick. Though good striking is always going to look like kickboxing (in the end), I think that as TMAers gradually become enlightened as to the right way to train (and fight) we will continue to see more workable techniques come out of those fighters/schools. Which is only going to add to the fight game as a whole.

    Yeah, thanks for the response. We'll see how things develop I suppose.

    Nicely timed kick...the krotty guy wimped out though, so it isn't a KO as such

    I hate to play the "coulda woulda" game, but if it wasn't for the ref stoppage I'm willing to bet that it would have been.
