    How could a simple flick of the wrist be such a potent weapon against a kicker? Well, it is!

    Are Kickboxers not used to constant jabbing? It totally upset his rhytm. He was much more skilled than I.


    My belief in boxing grows by the minute, even against kickboxers...

    Yes they are, just not this one it seems. You should be very careful not to classify all kickboxers by one person, it will lead to you getting nasty surprises.

    Kickboxing has exactly the same punches as boxing so yes they should know to deal with a jab...kickboxing is boxing with kicks hence the name kickBOXING

    He was a Serbian National Champion in Kickboxing.

    No. Kickboxing is a hole different ball game. Different stances, footwork, bodymechanics, headmovement, strategies etc.

    And how do you know this...you don't train in boxing we all know that since you've been asking if it's worth it and I'm willing to bet you haven't done kickboxing either since you're saying about testing for your black belt next year so Im assuming it's not kickboxing you do

    What organization?

    Seems fishy...he is national champion but can't handle simple jabs.

    National/international championships don't mean much, considering how many different organizations there are. I met a national champion in karate (forget what org.), in order to get that she had to beat 3 other people. Much less impressive when you scrutinize it.

    And kickboxing is different, but a lot of it is the same. They absolutely know how to deal with jab/cross/hook/uppercut combos.

    Lol stop embarrassing yourself man I've trained and competed in both there's not much difference at all. In fact for most of my boxing matches I trained in a kickboxing club because it was more convenient for me. There's loads of kickboxing who fight in boxing matches because at least in my area there's more boxing cards than kickboxing so if it was completely different they wouldn't be able to. You need to stop making up stuff to make yourself sound clever because there's experts in pretty much every style here and lies will get caught very quick

    Okay I'm calling bs on this story. You're telling me a taekwondo brown belt (or the equivalent) who's only been training 4 years beat up a kickboxing champion...by throwing a jab...yeah sorry not believing this I'm afraid

    I don't believe you have. Your just as much of a pretender as your twin brother. Anybody claiming that kickboxing has the same punching mechanics as boxing could not possibly have done either one.

    Lol twin? Wtf have you been smoking....you haven't done either of them we all know that you haven't yet you're claiming to be an expert and telling professional fighters there technique is wrong and telling us all how you're guaranteed your black belt. I have done them trust me unlike some I don't know to make up garbage to big myself up I know I've done them and I honestly don't if you believe me but I know what I say is true can't say the same for you

    oh well see ..that explains it. everyone knows that Serbian kickboxers have a weakness for being poked or punched in the nose. their eyes have a blind spot in the center of their face. the Ottomans took good advantage of this during the Balkan wars of 1912. the Ottomans would just walk right up to them and poke them in the nose with a long stick and it would send them running. in fact that is how the Ottomans took over Serbia, there was a lot of finger poking in the nose going on back then.

    He had such an overwhelming advantage on theoretical scorecards that me coming back around the end made no difference, but it would have been interesting if we had started over again. It was a 3 minute sparring encounter.

    I will challenge him tommorow and see how he does then.

    You mean to tell me that national champions are poor representatives? If he was stunned, how on earth would an average guy do? I just mentioned his nationality in case anyone wondered.
