Taekwondo technique ends fight immediately

Technique, speed and power easily debilitated this opponent. If you think someone who trains in a TMA doesn’t have any useful skills in a street fight, think again.

They’re becoming more and more common in street fights it sees. We’re usually used to seeing people throw wild haymakers and punches. In many cases, unskilled people will try and take their opponents down and try that famous MMA ground and pound. Every now and then we even see kicks. But at the end of the day, we tend to see a lot of sloppy work from people in street fights.

In this case, we actually get to see someone who knows how to throw a high kick. The teen without the t-shirt on and the pearly white shoes is seen moving, bouncing around, switching stances, hands low and looking pretty loose against his opponent.

In many ways, he looks like someone that may have practiced Taekwondo or Karate. In many ways, he looked like just how Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson would move inside the UFC Octagon.

Just like “Wonderboy,” the moment his opponent lunged in for an attack, he timed a perfect high right roundhouse to his neck. The impact causes his opponent to quickly grab is throat and begin to flail and fall to the ground. It’s a good thing it seemed like the t-shirtless kicker didn’t follow up with some vicious ground and pound.

So there my friends is how a kick is thrown. Technique, speed and power easily debilitated his opponent. If you think someone who trains in a TMA doesn’t have any useful skills in a street fight, think again. You wouldn’t want to get yourself embarrassed by someone in a Karate stance bouncing back and forth and completely ready to take your head off.
