    hmmm... the emphasis on kicking makes it more "ritualistic" than realistic for me.

    hahaha that's very very very true! I still like the speed at which they execute their speeds, though. TBH, I don't like taekwondo much as I find it impractical, but the videos were nice.

    And then I got to watch hassan's fight versus mike zambidi... tsk, what a mismatch! (wait, the one you posted is also of mike zambidi, but the one I caught on youtube had very nice quality)

    reminded me of the URCC (sorta like UFC), wherein a wingchun expert (great kicks and punches) came up against a stocky solid-built boxer... all his kicks were shugged off, and the boxer would just close in and BAM BAM BAM! After a few repetitions it was very evident the wingchun was outclassed.

    No question. The other guy had read him like a book. Took every strenght away and turned them agaist him. Top job on pre fight planning.

    His kicks are good but using a spinning back kick on someone that is your equal or better is not a good idea. You leave your back exposed and recovery can give your opponent an advantage. At 2.11 he attempts a SBK and gets hammered.

    One good wack on the nose will screw up anyone's day.

    ...and just when I thought it would be hard to find a better Taekwondo fighter than that, here's this guy, who IMHO is even several notches better!

    **** the bed, that guy is huge. Bit of a dull fight though. He didn't have to keep walking slowly on, he could've just rotated a little*, once on the ground it was hard to imagine him getting up, and he didn't fall on the smaller man so well.
