Fuck it I'll do it now >you only responded because you were seething at how right I am <more yapping
Imagine being this self-absorbed. I responded because you actually spread some outright harmful claims and fallacious arguments that any aspiring martial artist may take to heart and get roflstomped for their trouble. >I'm not goin to read [wtf was said] <proceeds to reply based on wtf was said
Ok lol>that’s not saying much then, it always boils down to who is more well rounded
So you're not actually arguing my point, just being contrarian, you've "abused"/"disabused" nothing>some martial arts styles are better for the physical fitness and conditioning
Sure like Capoera, but not in the case of TKD, TKD is more rounded than Karate and Karate has held up in its abilities fairly decently. I'm also not talking about the rigid formalized TKD that you se on big TVs, that's not even close to actual TKD fighting because you're specifically discouraged to use hands in such matches. The same applies to Muay Thai in Japanese KD1 - they limit the movesets by taking points or outright banning certain moves. WTF TKD takes points for boxing or leg grabs meaning that 2/3 of the moveset is removed and that isn't enough against a grappling and boxing based fighter of a similar level, the same can be said of Muay Thai, if you remove grabbing you completely remove their main counter to kicks. The modern TKD competitive trains only to fight in WTF TKD competitions not against other style fighters.>They are not even close
I took Kick-boxing and Muay Thai and the basic move sets are almost the same, the differences being in the variations of their use and sometimes stance, as seen in any MMA fight that has kick-boxers and Muay Thai. Obviously official Kick-Boxing matches have more limitations, but real fights do not have them. The same can be said of official Judo see >>18905 Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
