The Power of a Single Strike

When I saw this clip the title popped up at once.  The strong contrast is suggested by the idea that we train martial art and study many different ways of striking our opponents from many different angles using a varieties of kicks and punches.  Sad reality is that, physiologically, our head can just about bear a single, powerful full on kick or punch before giving in.  So to win a fight it would be enough to wait the right moment and strike… but obviously when both opponent are prepared for it this strike some times does not come as it should.

The first part of the video shows the completely different style of the two opponents that are later fighting in a K1 contest:

  • Mighty Mo shows in the various fights he wins how the power of a single strike that connects cleanly on the head can put any fighter KO;
  • Kaoklai Kaennorsing shows how mobile he is and how his opponents can hardly touch him.

Then the surprise comes in the way the fight finishes: enjoy the view and let me know what you think.
