I have watched many interviews with Joe Rogan talking shit about Tae Kwon Do and other traditional martial arts. The early years of striking involved mostly overhand rights and brawlers. We barely even seen the jab in display till recently. The striking in mma is constantly evolving and in recent years we see techniques like the side kick, spinning kicks, and in and out stances often used in karate / TKD Joe Rogan believes that these stuff would never work in MMA just because they weren't used often. He believes what was successful at the time (when the striking game in MMA mostly consisted of boxing / kickboxing techniques) will always be the best. What hasn't happened yet does not mean it won't be successful. Joe Rogan needs to sit back and relax and eat his own words back as this is just the beginning. In the near future the best strikers in MMA will incorporate techniques from a variety of traditional martial arts. We have already seen the side kick, spinning back kick, spinning wheel kick, etc being very effective as well as traditional martial arts stances and footwork. JOE ROGAN you have no clue what you are talking sometimes.
