    Okey, thanks for sharing. Any particular reason why? Do you also like Muay Boran but not Muay Thai?

    I don't know for sure. It may have something to do with me going straight from learning Shotokan Karate to training Tang Soo Do and learning essentially the same art under a different culture and language. The stances in TSD aren't as deeply rooted while executing reverse punches and other hip swivel techniques as in Shotokan which to me is better because it is much healthier for the knees. I also appreciate the larger arsenal of kicking techniques but not overly flashy and unrealistic as in WTF TKD.

    No, I like them both although I've never trained in muay boran but have trained in muay Thai.

    Really? You didn't have more flashy kicks in Tang Soo Do than Shotokan?

    Okey. The stances in Shotokan are raised at around 3rd Dan to "neutral". So yeah, lots of years stuck in deep stances

    I think it's a good kick. I also think you're wide open to the groin counter-kick and to the over hand, and you may have flat feet.

    Can you throw all the kicks yair Rodriguez throws? Or any of them? Didn't realize you were near black belt. I bet you got a arsenal of flashy suprise attacks! Cool as fuck.

    Dunno about all of that. But based on the living quarters, I know one thing.
