  1. Ginger getting in a lot of fights.. Maybe he should stop taking Peoples souls and they would zimmer down… 😞

  2. How have I been watching this channel for about a year and a half and not seen this. This guy is siiiiick no tell with that snapkick. my dad is the true ginger ninja he has always called himself that in karate he’s an old man now lol.

  3. Been doing karate and TKD since 1991 and have been close to fighting in the street but was always able to diffuse the situation. I am real paranoid about having my kicks caught, so I think I'd rely on a slip then body hook counter, like Tyson/D'Amato

  4. The vast majority of fights start from six inches; frequently you never get that time or that distance to position yourself.

  5. Used a sidekick in an altercation once. Immediate gratification and the fight ended there. I can’t throw a sidekick that good anymore but these videos help retrain me.

  6. It may seem strange to practice taekwondo to use instead karate do kicks in real-life situations, but taekwondo is a son of karate do.

  7. Mugger: GIVE ME YOUR MONEY!

  8. Im going to make a new martial art mixed form of mma,sanda,kravmaga is this three martial arts are good

  9. Nowadays, I generally don't think of kicks and punches in any context outside of combat sports, ie kickboxing and MMA. But like most people, I've thought about self defense applications at some point in time in my life.
    I like the first kick the best; low, linear, and fast. It doesn't take much skill to learn, and it works well even with shoes.
    The second kick can be good too, but I think mid-level side kicks take a lot of skill to execute with confidence. Most kickboxers can't throw a fast, well-balanced, and accurate side kick like Aaron's, unless they came from an unorthodox background, like American kickboxing, sanda, or ITF taekwondo. Missing on a mid-level side kick sucks if you're not used to recovering from that over-turned position. I've always been a fan of low-line side kicks; it doesn't take long to develop a fast and accurate side kick to the knee.
    That third kick is even trickier. First the footwork is difficult to learn; that side step combined with simultaneous rotation is really similar to the way that old school Olympic taekwondo athletes counter incoming turning kicks (although I don't think it's as common now in the electronic scoring era). Second, I generally think that rotational kicks are a lot tougher (compared to linear kicks) to execute when wearing shoes.
    Anyways, interesting ideas. I hadn't thought about self defense applications in a long time.
