    The TKD fighters kick better and faster. Now let's not compare to a K1 fighter who kicks without much technique aiming at just strength

    Sorry I am in the hospital right now I was sparring a local muay Thai champ and he blocked a super powerful kick I threw with his forearm needless to say my shins are pretty much destroyed. As a warrior and fighter I am not used to the pain bruising and swelling brings. Naturally at the hospital I requested fentanyl, the doctors wouldn't give me any I doubt they understand the the of pain of slight bruising.

    Why is this a dumb thread? I was impressed by their kicking prowess, unlike Olympic Taekwondo of today.

    The introduction of padding into taekwando changed the whole game. Knockouts and inflicting attritional damage was much harder. This affected the style of kicking used.

    Quick kicks that would score points became preferred to slightly slower kicks that deployed higher levels of power.

    Lots of KO's in padded Taekwondo 80-90s. What killed it was point detectors on the vests in the 2000s. People stopped aiming for knockouts.

    tea kwon do kicks are more about precision and speed, muai thai kicks are about pure damage.

    Muaythai kicks can be all those things depending on the person. Just like how some boxers are faster or more powerful than others.
