Nice find, Oldman. I may yet figure out that terminology.

He had good form. When he quit showing the techniques actually used against resistance i began to wonder how many of these would actually be good to use in combat and I didnt find many. Way to many head high kicks.

Nice find! Thanks for sharing.

Since I am assuming this is up for discussion, here is what I think:

The good:
The fighter demonstrating the techniques had great rhythm and timing. If you watch him carefully, you can see him match his opponent's rhythm, and then break that rhythm when he attacks (this timing is crystal clear in the demo parts of the video, although if you watch the fights carefully you can pick it up there too). His attacks are starting just as his opponent starts to bounce forward, and landing when his opponent lands on the forward foot. Great timing, and a good reason to break off, attack, or change your rhythm whenever anyone tries to lull you into complacency by matching your rhythm. (Does all this make sense? Sometimes I am at a loss for words at this stuff, and wish we were all actually in the dojo so we could show each other what we mean rather than type about it.)

The bad:
All the round kicks to the head. They seem to work for this gentleman (and I have been known to be a head-kicker myself), but my first preference is for lower, straight-line attacks - my favorite being a lead leg side kick right into the ribs or breadbasket . I especially like to time it like the gent in the video - lull my opponent into a rhythm, and then break that rhythm to plant my heel in their gut as they bounce forward.

Again, thanks for the video!

Mike

So? Sparring is training and if your training is intended to protect you then you must train in the manner in which you choose to defend yourself. Anything else is wasted energy. If he chooses to defend himself with head height kicks then that is his perrogative, but not a good choice of tactics in my opinion.
