  1. Taekwondo vs. Muay Thai vs. Kickboxing… which one is the best?

    I believe that one martial art isn't necessarily "better" than the other, but if you're able to mix Taekwondo kicks with MMA, Muay Thai or Kickboxing, then you have that many new combinations and techniques to strike your opponent with.

    Here my friend and training partner Cassie shows 5 of the best TKD Kicks (both for beginners and advanced) that you can use in Muay Thai, MMA or Kickboxing including the side kick, spinning back kick, spinning wheel kick, ax kick and 360 tornado kick.

  2. Just so you know, all these kicks are also included in Savate! 😉 with a good combination with english boxing and placements

  3. Im no champ, but have been sparring for 10ish years and that spinning wheel kick is the only kick that has nearly ko'd me.
    It works like a charm. 🙂

  4. The round house can be executed so you can double strike the opponent. The first kick is not a fake kick. If the opponent isn't in a defensive position you can strike with the "fake kick". You have to make them believe in the first kick. That's how you pull of a round house.

  5. my favorite Taekwondo kicks when muay thai sparing is the axe kick followed by a jump spin kick. The axe kick especially is very dangerous so try not to be too forceful when sparing with a partner. But it always confuses muay thai fighters. I think its great to learn kicks from different martials arts. (luckily from me i came from TDK so i knew other types of kicks these kicks). i do a few jump skin kicks in this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxUu35hPWJo )

  6. Both of you are amazing ! Get inside and Muay Tai wins every time. Just saying 🙂 Lots of love to you guys from me.

  7. Represented my country in TKD and studied MT and kickboxing for many years, both are great but MT/kickboxing are far more practical for self defense in my humble opinion. Having said that, I totally agree that TKD kicks can be applied to MT, MMA and Kickboxing. I found my TKD kicks always gave me an advantage in MT and kickboxing. One thing I disagree with was Cassie's advice to look before you throw the spinning back kick, it slows you down considerably and I found did not necessarily increase the success rate, especially if thrown at the right time, when an opponent is coming on. Great video, thanks guys.

  8. spinning wheel kick is extremly powerful when done right.Power comes not only from spining but also from your body weight if u build chained momentum from yr ankle>shoulders/hips > knees and transfer this force correctly in maximum range/hit moment- when done properly it ignores defense or damages hands. It can be thrown as standalone headstriker or in combinations..For most situations – setup is needed. Btw Your body position in max/hit is rather cute than accurate..

  9. not correct way of doing wheel kick, too big circle, at least in taekwondo. you start as you do high level back kick and then twist at the end. And Axe kick, no one does it with a straight leg, like no other taekwondo kicks, all start from a bended position. When someone kicks with straight legs, they deliver much less power and easier to counterattack.

  10. Taekwondo for Muay Thai awesome idea!!! try it when a guy who has skills in Muay Thai come at you lol… esp. wait your in Thailand?? HAHAHA!!! Advertisement which does not make sense!!

  11. You can pull off a faster axe kick if you chamber your leg by bringing the knee up and only extending it when it's at the top. If you raise it all extended it'll be slower and you'll use more energy.

  12. Awesome! Now go over the footwork, most MT has none for these kicks. IMHO. (Hint: it's not boxing footwork…)

  13. what should a axe kick hit in the middle from the body why dont you aim for the head or the like you said hes guard isnt arround his tummy

  14. I only practice two kicks in my whole life, the roundhouse kick and the side kick.
    But that's more than enough, why?
    Do not fear the man who knows many techniques
    Fear the man who has mastered one technique
