He knocked him down,not out, because he was off balance from all the jumping and flopping around with his hands uselessly hanging at his sides.

Dude, with so much kicking those 2 guys where doing someone was bound to get kicked and especially when they are both holding their belts, lol. Nice kick thought (the kick was i think a 360 spinning hook/heel kick).

What I found impressive was that he landed a 540d jump spinning kick.

He landed it not because the guys hands were down, but because he used the spin to fake out the opponent and draw him in.

While a guard would have helped, most people keep their guard at mid height, only some boxers or thai boxers hold a high gaurd all the time (as in even when they are closing). Guards are not really relevant if you are using a ranged fighting style as your aim is to control the opponent with distancing not physical pressure. Evasion and counter is the way to go. This is a TKD tournament, an exposition of ranged combat and effectively a duel. I wouldn't expect anyone to use this kick in self defense against an untrained fighter, a one on one duel is different. It relies on chess like strategy anticipating how the opponent will move and the winner in this vid did this perfectly.

It's incredibly easy to mindlessly diss these guys, but I can't even do a 540d jump spinning hook kick, let alone perform it with the body inflection to fake my opponent.

Someone commented on the tip tap nature of the fighting, well IMO that makes it even more impressive. That kick carries so much momentum it should've taken the guys head off. The fact that the winner threw the kick relatively slowly and still landed it is impressive, but he did it with enough control to only bust the guys nose as well. As I said I couldn't do it.
