    His roundhouse kick 0:29




    My kick



    I didn't like his side kick at all, but I tried to emulate his roundhouse kick at 0:30 It hade a nice whip like style, and was blazingly fast.

    Is it silly for a tall guy like me kicking in this crouched style?

    I don’t find it a good kick. Given what we know now about the biomechanics of kicking, and posture in general.

    It's really a one hit kick, there's no way you can make up a fast combo with it, not to mention the imbalance posture. Don't call it dolyo chagi, the mechanics are too different.

    Yes, which is SD orientation. Kicking combos are for sport.

    It’s bad even for SD.

    I didn't ask if it was good or not. I asked if it resembled a particular exponent.

    Yes. They are both bad.

    All credit to the TKD school. Can you imagine a more worthless place? 4 years of training down the drain

    I thought you were trying to copy the video in the OP?

    Interesting. Looking at the school's videos, it doesn't seem to be the case that other people have the same attitude and postural issues.

    My posture is fine in the dark video. I stiffened since that time as you can clearly see. You don't believe me? I threw a roundhouse kick which had the leg action of a side kick in, and you think it's a good school to let that go unnoticed? I have kicked in front of instructors, and they have never corrected me.

    As much I dislike your arrogance, I would not have kicked that way for a class in your place. The fact that you think I learned from Youtube speaks volumes.

    Not in the last one I'm not.
