    I'm a red belt (belt before black) in Taekwondo.

    Do I kick better than an average MMA/UFC guy? I have never been to an MMA gym.

    1. Video is in slow-mo so I can't tell how fast or powerful your kick is
    2. You're also kicking with the foot instead of the shin, which is not ideal for MMA. I know they teach you to do that in Taekwondo but you can break your foot very easily in a fight if your opponent knows what he's doing.
    3. In regards to your question, if you're comparing yourself to a fighter who kicks frequently, then no. You're definitely a better kicker than DC though :p
    4. It takes balls to post something like this on Sherdog, so keep practicing, but try to land with the lower part of the shin instead of the foot. Trust me, it helps.

    It looks like you need to stretch a little, and hit the bag with your shin.

    Yeah I just kicked it cold. I haven't done Taekwondo for a while, just boxing. And I'm not left footed either

    Wow! Are they still that bad? Their punching has improved a lot! Romero had a nice KO of Rockhold.

    My problem is they have no set ups it' just the same goddamn kick over and over.

    Example is I box but occasionally dabble in pka kickboxing and they have great flexiblity and many colorful kicks and set ups. I don't see it in MMA even though I mostly box.

    You're not exactly a speed demon, but a very competent kicker nonetheless. You have good power because of your long legs and knowing how to swing your arms correctly. All in all, pretty solid.

    You hit the nail on the head. I'm kinda like the kicking equivalent of a slugger?
