Dude even had his shoes off! :erg:
Wow, that guy is definitely going to feel that when he wakes up
And this is why I like Russians.
Well, ok, not the WHOLE reason. A tiny part of it but.
Whoa nice kick! Lololol. Dude is allllll the way knocked out!!
Did both of these guys know TKD? Why did both of them have their shoes off?
Russians dont wear Shoes.
Shoes are for the Weak.
The Stone and Gravel Condition Their Feet, about as much as Spinning Heel Kicks Condition Their Skulls.
I know what Im talking about.
Short 'n sweet.
Yeah and the pavement of the road also
I kick you you hit ground.
OK I can't spell it in Russian but you get the drift
Very nice. I have used taekwondo in self defense, though I utilized far more conservative techniques.
Sounds like a humpback whale in the background...
So much for all those who say you cannot use high kicks in self defense situations.
That looks exactly how the spin hook kick is applied in hapkido, more so than taekwondo.
Ah Daniel, Youtube no like conservative; Youtube like flamboyant. Flamboyant get views. Flamboyant bring advertising (or potential strike to crotch!)
True. Wouldn't have been my choice, but you can't argue with effective.
Why not? The guy was flat footed (immobile) with his hands down. Can you think of a better posture to call "begging to be kicked in the head"?
I was a little curious about that myself, but then you could argue that his problem may have been that he was thinking to much instead of prepping himself. That kick was, technically speaking, far from great, but with optimal results. I'm a pretty technical guy, but I'll be the first to admit that power buys a lot of forgiveness.
you know, you can play russian roulette and not die, doesnt make it a good idea.
luck is just that
I don't think it's luck to recognise where an opponent is open and strike there.
Valid point, but to your earlier post, as flat footed as he was, I think he could have hit him anywhere he wanted.
its skill thatallowed him to land the shot
its luck that he got away with it
Wouldn't have been my personal choice because I like my crotch and he was begging to be punched in the mouth just as much as he was begging to be kicked. My personal SD philosophy is, waist or above, hands, waist or below, feet, with the waist being the area of overlap.
I'm not criticizing the guy in the video; I speak for myself only, as I don't consider my own high kicks to be all that good.123
