    This is a flawed analogy. Western Boxing is a combat system/sport consisting entirely of closed fight punching techniques. Therefore, a minimum test of its efficient is if it holds up against other arts when you only punch. Taekwondo is a art/sport of kicking and punching (mainly) and should therefore hold up against other arts that kick and punch, and not collapse to other ways of kicking and punching.

    But of course as my experience and that of other practitioners show, what you've learned is not enough to counter someone who can box..It's only a matter of how bad he needs to be before you get steamrolled. Anybody who had not had this experience and somehow was not steamrolled by boxing, is a very very high level practitioner fighting a journeyman.

    Hi there. Are you still sticking by the PC viewpoint that no arts are inferior? You think Aikido is just as valid form of self defense as Judo, Boxing, BJJ?
