    What is the best style against a Taekwondo fighter? 3rd Dan blackbelt

    Misc brahs, going to get into a MMA cage fight with a friend, he always brags about his Taekwondo background and how he'd easily take me, I weight more than him but we plan on fighting at Middleweight. Im also about an inch taller than him, I wanted advice on which style would be the most effective against a TKD fighter, I have till August 9th to prepare, plan on improving endurance and I'm pretty sure I'm stronger than him.

    With some background in tkd training (though limited) and viewing people like Pettis - it seems to be it is a style most effective with plenty of room to T-off and set up. If I was going against that style I would stay close in clinch and dirty box or take him down. Keeping it in close won't allow him to set up many of his kicks and if you take him down he has none of it. tkd is like 90% kicks so really its just nullifying that. I got to imagine that level of a fighter has many kicks for being in close too but mostly I would plan on a very clinch heavy, closed fight to frustrate his moves and not let him get any of the big kicks off. If you got ground game just take him down and fight him there. If all he knows is tkd and you can nullify that, I am not sure he will have anything else he can do. depends though because my tkd instructor also brought in bjj once in a while until I later switched to just bjj and mma style training


    edit: I am assuming you have some real training btw because if your just walking into the cage v a black belt, F'ing lol

    Grappling. You are bigger and stronger than him so completely disregard his kicks and run straight into him. Take him down and make sure to hold top position before trying to punch.

    He will try to keep you on the outside with gay little sidekicks and roundhouses.


    Btw what u guys are doing is retarded. Tell him the mma misc says you both suck at fighting

    I'm naturally really good at grappling, I'm starting an MMA gym soon, it does Muai Thai, BJJ, Boxing, I've got a boxing background and trained a while when I was younger but naturally my grapplings always been better. As soon as I can clinch I've got him, he's extremely fast and I definitely feel hes going to stay outside and try wearing me down with kicks/low kicks. I'm not super experienced but I've also been in quite a few fights and know quite a few submissions for a person that doesn't really train. Actually got into a street fight last year, ended with a guillotine. We made a deal that if he beat me, I'd start TKD.

    If you have a background boxing background but you are better at grappling without any training in grappling then you don't have a boxing background

    I grappled the guy today and lost, he was too slippery and it took me too long. I dun goophed brahs, however I've got about 7 lessons of Muai-Thai, Jiu Jitsu and boxing to improve. ill update on how it went but that was a confidence killer. ^I haven't boxed in a while and I trained for about 2 years but I never claimed to be any good lmao

    Lol it's all good brah. People like to chit on tkd but someone with multiple years of martial arts experience, who has trained hard and long enough to be a 3rd Dan should be able to beat you - a martial arts hobbyist in a fight.

    Sometimes it's good to get humbled. Be a man of your word and train some tae Kwon do with your buddy loool

    i have a black belt in tkd. took an mma fight because i thought id work the guy with what worked in tkd tournaments and if need be work a few submissions. guess what? i got my ass kicked. what happened to me is what you will do to your friend aug 9

    tkd fighters stances are wide, with using distance as a means to attack. the stances alone are easy pickings for wrestling take downs. if you dont want to do that, stay in the pocket with boxing / striking. if you stand within jabbing distance you've just eliminated his best weapon, his legs. any time you see him switch his hips or even look like he's going to kick you, step in. do not back away or you'll catch a foot or shin. step in and clinch. if you do that you should at least mentally rape him for awhile until you finish him

    I wouldn't go that far....TKD does have some nice kicks although a bit on the flashy side. If you're unaware, it probably wouldn't end well.


    I didn't read everyone's response, but I'm going on the assumption that just about everyone has said that any type of ground game will subdue someone who is 100% TKD. Be prepared for a head kick on the outside so work to get in on the inside and or a take down. Once on the ground it should be relatively easy work from there. Probably not much different than someone with little to no ground game background.

    Do you even BJJ? Work takedowns and BJJ and you'll be fine. If you've got no experience at those, I hope you know how to apply pressure and box because that's the other option that tends to give most TKD guys lots of problems.

    Without knowing your advantages, my advice in a vaccuum is to walk him down, apply stronger pressure, punch him hard in the head everytime he goes for a kick, and look to put him up against the fence or ropes, and either blast him out or go for takedowns and then GnP or sub him out from top control, or to secure a sub in a scrabble. If you can leg kick well, that's a good option too, but may be best for a throwing him off tactic to set up your takedowns or standup.

    Striking wise?

    -Pressure (as in don't allow kicking range distance)
    -Check every kick. Punish them.
    -Leg kicks. Again more punish.

    As people have already said, grappling is go-to for 1v1 fights, especially against TKD. It only takes a few months of grappling training to beat most untrained grapplers on the ground.

    The best way to beat a TKD person is stay close so they can't throw long kicks and get in their low stances. So any type of close-in hand technique style would work well. Be careful though because if he is very flexible he may still be able to get a head kick in (needs to be 180 degree splits flexible). This is anecdotal, but I've found the TKD people I've fought can't take low kicks very well so try landing some solid kicks on his hamstrings.

    Fedor even took TKD to work on his kicks. It's generally thought as useless, but it is very good for working on kicks. Strikes it helped. The blocking felt useless as I could not apply it outside a TKD tournament.

    I actually took TKD classes as a kid and I remember going through the techniques, 3x a week, with a sparring session of all standup once a week, and feeling invincible when I throw them high kicks. It never helped me in any of my school grounds fights though. I will go out on a limb and say that any style commonly incorporated into MMA training would work against it. I tell my parents now that, putting me into TKD may've helped my confidence for a brief time back then but if only I knew then what I didn't know now that I'd recognize I was IMHO training to get my ass kicked. Mom says the purpose of me being in it was not to end up fighting anyway.

    I often joke onhere that TKD is the best for standup though.

    he will most likely try to keep his distance, so capitalize on your boxing background and move forward. don't let him get comfortable

    you'll want to take him down, so definitely work on your wrestling for takedowns and bjj for basic transitions and submissions.

    he'll have a wide stance, so you will likely be looking for single-leg takedowns. practice your transitions, especially starting from half-guard, full guard, and side control, because that's where you'll end up being after taking him down

    also, watch out for spin back kicks and side kicks to the gut. those will probably be his go to strikes to create distance, and they can hurt like a pitch if landed properly.

    most importantly, do not forget that he will most likely work on his ground game and takedown defense as well. don't expect it to be a breeze after taking him down
