    The answer to your issue may be revealed by X Rays. I cannot speak to what is "Common" . As far as one side being weaker there are potential solutions. Train the weaker side with 10% more (Don't overtrain it) reps for 3 months and see what happens. (Again, this may be fruitless or worse if you have a physical issue) A doctor's analysis with Physical therapy my be in order.

    My strength and dexterity are not what they used to be. So I cannot use my flexibility as well. There are some things that just are not worth the pain it would cause. Can I do them? Yes but not well.

    I'm ambidextrious in my legs so that's how I remember that there never was any medial condition historically. It's something I've noticed in later years only.

    I guess ambipedal or two-footed is more precise because it only concern my legs.

    I don't, but, not having watched the video, all my lead leg side kicks are low. Basically if I'm throwing it from the front leg, I'm aiming at their kick, to prevent it from connecting.

    That's probably not something they focus too much on in tkd, but I'm aware that my kicks are worse than a tkders (generally), so it's better if I take kicks out of the equation by punishing them for trying to throw one.

    Given what you've said on here about your own sparring style it might be something you'd like to work on too.

    I haven't been to the all open tournaments but what the non TKDoins generally do is bridge the gap, clinch, throw, finishing technique to the ground, and win by superior inside game.

    What sort of open tournaments are you referring to? From my understanding most TKD tournaments don't allow that.

    Personally my style is a direct counter to what you've described. I (and my main teachers) bridge the gap, enter, throw hook/smashes, and then slip out of the throw to escape while they're trying to get a grip. Then when they attempt to come in again, I throw a cross-counter or hook counter, then back up and try to stay in punching range. Basically all our groundwork is from training with bjj purple belts and up, trying to escape rather than staying on the ground with them. That's not part of the plan, but if I mess up and end up on the ground I need to know what to do. And once I escape, I can go back to my game-plan.

    I'm not really sure what your post has to do with my comment about low kicks/prevention kicks, but from my experience my style seems to counter perfectly what you're describing.

    You speculated that it's better to take your kicks out of the equation. Meaning you speculated how to beat them.

    Yeah. I mentioned my way to handle kicks. I was giving gerry a suggestion on how to do so since he's also mentioned kicks aren't his strong point.

    I'm not really sure what points you're making with your responses to my posts.

    Yeah but what you said was completely irrelevant as far as I can tell. Which probably means I'm not getting your point.

    To which I replied what people facing TKD normally do in open style competion, which is clinch.

    I don't believe your version of a side kick will pose any problems at all for a TKD stylist. I would need see to see the application but it sounds very abstract and theoretical and something you probably haven’t tried

    Yes, even the non WT TKD tourneys do not go to the ground. More like bridge, clinch (slightly) and work back out.
    I have been to every style tourney you can think of. WT style works very well when combined with good hands but very few people see it that way and fewer can combine the two. Go to an open tournament and you can surprise the hell out of people if you can kick the face from punching range and recover so that they cannot easily counter.

    A Karate sponsored open style event may allow sweeps

    Well it used to anyway. WKF tournaments have sweeps. No I was not referring to that clip.

    If sweeps and clinch are not allowed, the pure Taekwondo stylist has generally speaking a huge advantage over a pure Karate stylist due to the range advantage of feet vs hands. Neither one knows the sweet science of boxing. Karateka can generally kick well but not as well and not as fluid as the Taekwondo expert,.

    Ask any Karate practitioner and he will tell you the same. Those kicks are not what they are used to facing.

    Here's one in Karate rule set.

    A 4th Dan (or higher) ITF black belt vs Karate (probably Shotokan).
