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.

  1. Single strike is still different from several strike. We might think that several strikes compared to single strike is better but we are wrong on that. Sometimes a single powerful strike is incomparable with several when you hit the point.

  2. I think there’s a good time for both,There’s a time for sending multiple strikes if the scenario calls for it and a time for a precise single strike like this one that obviously send several strikes to a void.

  3. Each strike has its own timing… It depends on the situation that may arise in the fight. There is so much to learn in martial arts and I think I am moving on to the next level. I just started training and so far so good. I know I can do this and I know I can be a good fighter.
