Please tell you master and his trophy cabinet that i sincerely apologise for offending him and his trophy cabinet in any way. My intetnion was never to offend him and his trophy cabinet it was to share my knowledge with one of his and his trophy cabinets students.

After rewatching karate kid I must say that you were right. The standing on the one leg kick is a brilliant kick. Your master and his trophy cabinet sure know there stuff.

The opposition you faced must've been top class for the super deadly one legged kick to even be allowed. Your master and his trphy cabinet must go to some pretty deadly tornaments.

Obviously the Olympic point sparrers are no where near the calliber of your master and his trophy cabient otherwise thay would use the one legged kick.

Obviously K-1 level strikers are no where near the caliber of your master and his trophy cabinet otherwise they would all use the one legged kick.

p.s. now i'm being disrespectful [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

Kiwi,

LOL. The kid means to block with the knee in a sideways fashion (God I hope he does) and not that crane LOL. But yeah...it's a lot like that otherwise.

Question for you though. You call it "olympic point sparring". Just wondering why?

Just to distinguish between the different rules in point sparring. I could call it WTF rules but most non-TKD persons don't know much about the organisations. However most people have seen or atleast hear that TKD was in the Olympics.

So the main reason is just so everyone can follow what I'm saying.

The stance described is particuallarly inneffective (speelling? I changed it to remove the joke) if front leg sweeps are allowed... as you only have the front leg. also if you are quick enough and can get inside their chamber you can score quickly with a hand technique. As far as beating a fast person (though I'm still low ranking), I can't give much advise, from what I have seen I am the fast guy. Try being defensive, when my opponent does that it messes me up. I like to wait for them to attack so that I can counter, but it depends on the method used by your opponent. Try to go for a knockdown and hard hits to the body so that he gets point deductions and gets winded.

Also you could chase a chicken around to try and get faster, because as everyone knows if you can catch a chicken you can catch greased lightning.

The stance described works really well if front leg sweeps are allowed...

No

No more jokes, this simply doesn't work.

a This in no way resembles the crane kick in karate kid, I believe this is called fast kick in tkd.
b you are turned at 45 degrees to your opponent, not straight on idiot.
c my former master is a former 2 time Kumite champion, yes like bloodsport Jackass
d I am not a kid I am 28 years old and I have been doing ma for almost 20 of those years
e ever heard of a side kick
f you are not standing on the lead leg
g Norm used this stance for point sparring with green belts for green belt humilition, some of which were black belts in other styles such as Shotokan which is the same shit as tkd, and he said if you could touch him you won. In 12 years no one ever did.
h If all your targets are covered how does anyone score a point on you, unless you are slow enough and dumb enough to let them get behind you.
i ever tried a sliding side kick, try three or four of em from this position.

I didn't say it was frank dux, I would never train under a movie legend, ickk. My master recieved an engraved katana valued at approximately 5,000 U.S. dollars in the seventies. He doesn't live in the states and I only found out about this through a late night conversation over beers. Not from random bragging to get students, like so many champions.
